For Prospective Students
Application for admission to counselor education programs must be completed by January 15 and offers of admission are made by March 15. After the acceptance period offers for any remaining spaces are made from waiting lists. The Curry Office of Admissions and Student Affairs manages the application and admissions process. Counselor Education faculty committees and the Counselor Education faculty make recommendations for the offers of admission. Entry-level students are not required to visit or have an interview although our student organization holds open houses and hosts prospective students. Doctoral applicants who are finalists for admissions offers are required to participate in interviews with the Counselor Education faculty. Admission is selective because there are more qualified applicants than available spaces. The University, Curry School and Counselor Education are committed to having a diverse student population. Because males are underrepresented in the counseling profession and among our students, males enhance our diversity.
The Counselor Education Program enrolls a total of approximately 65 students. Each year our goal is to enroll 10 new first year students in the entry-level programs in both Clinical Mental-Health and School Counseling, and 6 new doctoral students. Applications are offered admission for cohorts that enter each fall for full-time study. We hope the links below will help you decide that counseling is the graduate program you want to pursue and that you would like to study at the University of Virginia Curry School.
We have selected information from our student handbook that we believe will be of most interest. The entire handbook can be downloaded from this link.
