Cost Effective

We charge $500 per credit hour, and since our program is online there is no out-of-state tuition.

Fall Cohort Model

We offer a fall cohort model that sequences coursework in a way that makes the content relevant and meaningful to the students. Foundational content is given the first year, followed by advanced clinical content and internship experiences the second year. Students may go full or part-time.

Several Electives to Choose

The Counseling Program is partnering with other online programs at ULM to offer students a variety of electives that will tailor to their clinical interest. Students may take online course electives in the fields of psychology, gerontology, education, and marriage and family studies to expand their interdisciplinary knowledge.

Small Class Sizes

Faculty are committed to providing students with a quality education. Many of our content courses are capped at 15 and our Practicum and Internship courses are capped at 6.

Summer Workshop

The Counseling Program provides a summer workshop that is 100% online for students who complete their first year of classes. This workshop integrates all first-year coursework and students are exposed to advanced topics in clinical mental health, school, and addiction counseling from experts in the field.
