Employment Information

School Counseling:

In 2014 there were 12 graduates of Plymouth State University’s School Counseling master’s degree program. School counseling students take the Counselor Professional Competency Exam (CPCE). All students successfully passed the exam on the first attempt. Over the past several years, approximately 80% of initially enrolled students completed the program. Among all program graduates (including those not actively seeking employment), the 10 year job placement rate (2005-2014) is 87%; the three year placement rate (2012-2014) is 77%. For the current academic year, approximately 41 students are enrolled in the program. About half are full time and half are part-time. Course schedules accommodate both groups of students equally well.

Mental Health Counseling:

Last year there were 5 graduates of the Plymouth State University’s mental health counseling master’s degree program. No data exists regarding pass rates on licensing exams for this group as they are eligible for licensure only after accumulating 3000 hours of post master’s experience and 100 hours of face-to-face supervision—which takes at least two years. To the best of our knowledge, 100% of our graduates who have taken the state licensing exam have passed it. Clinical Mental Health Counseling students take the Counselor Professional Competency Exam (CPCE). All students successfully passed the exam on the first attempt. Over the past several years, 56% of initially enrolled students completed the program. Among all program graduates, the three year placement rate (2012-2014) is 85%. Two graduates during that time entered directly into doctoral study. For the current academic year, approximately 35 students are enrolled in the program. About half are full time and half are part-time. Course schedules accommodate both groups of students equally well
