School Licensure

Hello All,

Students please use the following link to submit your licenses:;jsessionid=77448560A26C83E041A505F61D818145.i-3f4de6c0

Please also view the powerpoint below for step by step instructions.  Students are responsible for sending in all of their own documents through the online system and after they have successfully submitted their application, the SOE licensure office will approve it.  There is no deadline and they can apply whenever they have a degree dated transcript.  Before applying, students should check their transcripts to make sure their degree has been awarded at the Specialist level.




We’re Growing!

On Wednesday, an open house was held on the campus of Cape Fear Community College to announce that we will be offering classes for the Wilmington area beginning in Fall 2017 semester.  We were pleased with the turnout and look forward to serving our students where they are.  If you have questions, please feel to call at the numbers below.flyer-1e

School Specialist License

Hello Students,

Students completing the CACREP, 60-hour program are eligible for recommendation for a specialist license, upon passing the PRAXIS II in Professional School Counseling.  School Counselors holding a M-level license who successfully complete additional prescribed coursework (such as the certificate) can be recommended for the S-level license.  Please contact NCDPI for pay/salary information related to licensure level.

Contact the school counseling program director, licensure office in the School of Education or The Graduate School for support.


Welcome to the Spring 2017 Semester


Welcome back students!

Whether you are a returning student or a new student to our programs, we hope you had a restful break and are ready to dive into the semester full of energy and excitement.  We all look forward to a semester of learning and growth.  To those of you that are working in field placement, absorb all the knowledge possible from your supervisors, make lasting connections, and enjoy this time of learning.

If you need anything from the faculty, please feel free to shoot them an email or come by during office hours.  Much success for the new semester and new year!
