By affirming that a program is meeting or exceeding established benchmarks of excellence and quality, accreditation is one of the most sought-after and highly-regarded achievement a program can earn.
La Salle’s Professional Clinical Counseling Program is accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). CACREP accredits degree programs in counseling and its specialties offered by colleges and universities worldwide.
CACREP accreditation provides recognition that the content and quality of the program has been evaluated and meets standards set by the profession. Students enrolled in accredited programs are assured that appropriate knowledge and skill areas are including and that the program is stable, professionally and financially. The program fulfills the degree requirements necessary to become a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Pennsylvania and most other states, as well as being able to take the National Counselor Exam (NCE).
CACREP is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), a national advocate and institutional voice for self-regulation of academic quality through accreditation.
