* The Clinical Mental Health Counseling major is currently accredited under the 2001 standards for Community Counseling programs as a Community Counseling program. The CACREP 2009 standards combine the Community Counseling and Mental Health Counseling standards into standards for Clinical Mental Health Counseling programs. The SPC intends to seek accreditation for this program as a Clinical Mental Health Counseling program when it comes up for reaccreditation, per CACREP guidelines. The Marriage, Couple & Family Counseling Major is not yet accredited by CACREP, but is expected to go under review in 2015 at the next accreditation evaluation.
