School Counseling

Endorsement as a school counselor is accomplished through the Department of Education in the state in which the school counselor is employed. For example, in Nebraska, certification requires the Master of Science in Education (MSE) degree in Counseling, a valid Nebraska teaching certificate, and verification of two years of successful teaching experience. Contact the Certification Officer, School of Education & Counseling, WSC for information about the requirements for an endorsement in school counseling.
