Our application deadline for Fall is February 1st. New students may begin the counseling program in Fall only.
Complete Seattle University’s Online Application, which includes the following elements:
Applicants must choose to apply to either the School Counseling program or the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program, but not both. The applicant will need to decide at the time of application which program to pursue; only one application will be reviewed per applicant per admissions cycle.
A maximum of 10 credits may transfer to the program on a 1:1 basis from a CACREP accredited university. The transfer credit evaluation process begins after a student has been enrolled into the Seattle University program, and at that time the assessment will be made which credits (if any) will transfer. Students can start their Petition for Exception to Policy (PEP) process by meeting with their advisor post-enrollment. More details about graduate transfer policies can be found here. Please note that credits may not transfer to Seattle University if they do not meet the specified requirements.
Applicants whose academic credentials are below the expected prerequisite course work, grade point average and/or test scores of those typically accepted to specific programs, but who through other means convey the potential for academic success, warrant offers of provisional or probationary admission. Probationary admission involves a specific time limit during which the student is expected to achieve the minimum GPA noted at the time of admission. When this condition is fulfilled, the department usually recommends advancement of regular graduate student status.
International students are invited to visit our admissions page for a list of requirements.
