This program leads to both the B.S. in Rehabilitation and Disability Services and the M.S. in Rehabilitation Counseling. This program is open to all B.S. in Rehabilitation and Disability Services majors who will have completed at least 96 semester hours with a 3.25 or better GPA. Students who have met these standards must also apply for admission to the M.S. in Rehabilitation Counseling program under the special provisions of this program. Students must meet Graduate School application deadlines. Interested students should talk with an adviser as early as possible and are encouraged to apply during their junior year.
Students must complete all the requirements for the B.S. in Rehabilitation and Disability Services (besides the 24 hours of advised course work) and the general education requirements before admission. Beginning with the first semester of their final undergraduate year, students will start taking classes in the M.S. in Rehabilitation Counseling program. These courses will count toward the final 18 credits of the undergraduate degree. Upon receiving their undergraduate degree, students will work with an adviser to establish a timeline for completion of the M.S. in Rehabilitation Counseling.
