* California requires state-specific content courses for clinical licensure. Please reach out to your advisor if you plan to seek a license in this state.

** Applicants for Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) licenses in Iowa and Texas must have completed a COAMFTE-accredited program. Nevada's Counselor Education Program is accredited by CACREP. The Iowa and Texas state boards may grant MFT licenses to graduates of non-COAMFTE programs on a case-by-case basis. Please contact the Iowa and Texas state boards if you plan to seek an MFT license in these states.
