Licensure Requirements for Professional Counselors, a state by state report

The information in this report was compiled through a survey of state counselor licensure boards conducted in the fall of 2015. State-by-state analysis of laws and administrative rules was also conducted to add to the survey data, especially for the jurisdictions that did not submit information in response to our request.

Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information presented here, but, due to the complexity of laws and regulations, and the frequency with which state regulations can and do change, we cannot guarantee that this report is completely without error. 

Readers are encouraged to bring any errors, omissions, or changes to our attention.  For any questions or corrections regarding this chart, please contact us. For additional information, clarification or interpretation of any of the laws and regulations summarized in this report, please contact the appropriate state licensing board.
