Counseling Licensure Resources

For students preparing to become an LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) or LMFT (Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist), most of the steps toward licensure take place after graduation from the Graduate School of Counseling.

The clinical mental health counseling master’s degree is designed to prepare students to sit for the national licensure exam to become a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Oregon.

The marriage, couple and family counseling master's degree is designed to prepare students to sit for dual licensure, both the national licensure exam to become an LPC in Oregon as well as the national licensure exam to become a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in Oregon. The opportunity to earn dual licensure is a unique and valuable feature of the marriage, couple and family counseling master’s degree program.
