For those school counselors who also have taken the additional courses required for licensure as a mental health counselor in Indiana. Dr. Hollingsworth will review school counseling transcripts to assure the courses are met for the LMHC. The LMHC track is specifically designed to meet the needs of school counseling graduates that currently hold our 51-credit hour master’s degree. The LMHC program builds on our 51-credit hour program for school counselors.

This 12 credit hour track aligns with the State of Indiana standards for the LMHC license. The program consists of three content courses, each 3 credits, and an advanced internship placement (300 hours/3 credits) in a mental health site. Students may need to travel for internship sites. It is the state licensure board’s decision as to eligibility for the LMHCA and LMHC.

Total 12 Credits Required

Please note: You must have 60 credit hours on your transcript, including 9 credits of internship to be eligible for licensure as a LMHCA or LMHC in Indiana. Visit our website to obtain additional information about the requirements for licensure as a mental health counselor.
