Admissions for Rehabilitation Counseling and Human Services
The Rehabilitation Counseling and Human Services program is now offered in Coeur d'Alene and Boise. Applications are being accepted for the new cohort beginning in May 2014, for both Coeur d’Alene and Boise. No new applications are being accepted for the current program at this time due to the fact that the Rehabilitation Counseling and Human Services program has a student capacity of 25 positions. Currently, the program is full and at capacity for the 2012 cohort cycle.
Prospective students interested in the next cohort cycle, May 2014, are encouraged to apply early. There are approximately 12 slots or positions per location. This means approximately 12 students will be allowed into Coeur d’Alene and 12 into Boise programs. The exception to these figures will only be considered if a geographical location is not able to fill these slots. At that time, additional admissions may be considered case by case. Due to the limited number of positions, early application and commitment to the program is appreciated.
The RCHS program is a 2 year program, full time. Preference will be given to applicants willing to attend full time. In addition, classes are offered on a given sequence. For course sequence, please refer to the tab entitled “Schedule of Program Courses”. It is very important for prospective and current students to understand that courses are only offered once every two years. This means if a student does not take a class or pass one for some reason, they will not be able to take the class again for two more years. Furthermore, this program requires students maintain a 3.00 GPA and must have above a 3.00 to graduate per regulations granted by the College of Graduate Studies. More specifically, this means grades below a “B” are generally not considered passing at the Graduate level.
Applicants must complete a prerequisite one-day (1 credit) course, CRC 407|507: Introduction to Rehabilitation Counseling. The writing assignments from this course are submitted as part of students’ application materials and are one aspect of the admission criteria that is considered.
The required application package that must be submitted to the Office of Graduate Admissions includes the following:
Writing sample and Personal Inventory Statement assigned during course
- Graduate Application and fee
