NARACES provides this list of Counselor Education program websites for prospective doctoral and masters students as a service to strengthen knowledge about our profession. We encourage prospective students to do their homework and to go to the CACREP website ( to learn about Counselor Education accreditation and what being a CACREP accredited-program entails. Listing of a graduate program does not mean that it is endorsed by NARACES and only programs that have the CACREP accredited notation are CACREP accredited at the time this list was last revised.
