Clinical Mental Health Counseling Applications and Admissions

Application for the Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program includes completing the Department application procedures and the College of Graduate Studies application procedures. All material should be uploaded with your application to the Graduate Studies. 

Deadline: All application materials should be submitted by December 1st in order to be guaranteed first consideration. Applications received earlier will receive earlier consideration, and applications received after December 1st are still invited. Both the Department application and the Assistantship/Scholarship applications should be submitted as soon as possible in addition to the ISU Applications for Admission.

Admission Requirements

Each applicant must satisfy the general criteria for admission to the College of Graduate and Professional Studies and each of the following requirements:

  1. Have a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university with a minimum undergraduate grade point average of 2.75 or better on a 4.00 point scale. 
  2. Have at least 12 semester hours in the behavioral sciences at the undergraduate level. 
  3. Have scores on the General Tests of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or the Miller Analogies Test (MAT). While the GRE and MAT standardized scores are used in conjunction with other admissions criteria, scores near or above 450 on the Verbal and Quantitative sections of the GRE or 400 on the MAT typically receive a more favorable review. 
  4. Have a grade point average of 3.00 on all courses taken at the graduate level at all schools attended. 
  5. Admissions are made on a selective basis. Meeting the requirements listed above does not guarantee admission to the program. 

NOTE: Students may be admitted on conditional status if their overall undergraduate GPA is at least 2.25, but less than 2.75. Deficiencies to a maximum of six hours in behavioral sciences can be made up by concurrent registration in undergraduate level courses early in the program

Completed Applications will include:

  1. Complete College of Graduate and Professional Studies online application & pay fee on line.
