Welcome to the University of North Florida Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program, a CACREP accredited program. The University of North Florida is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097; Telephone number 404-679-4501) to award baccalaureate, masters, and doctoral degrees.
Whether you have already been admitted or are just investigating various programs, this Student Handbook has been designed to provide you with specific information about the Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program.
Once you have been admitted to the Program please make a hard copy and save a file of the Handbook that is current when you begin your studies. Because the Handbook is revised on a regular basis the version with the date noted on it will be your guideline throughout your tenure in the program. If there are any curricular or other program changes you will be notified sufficiently in advance. If policy changes are made in the Handbook at a later date, you should not be affected by them and we will do our best to honor policies made when you entered the program.
The Clinical Mental Health Counseling Handbook does not replace the UNF Graduate Catalog or other official University documents, but rather supplements them. The Clinical Mental Health Counseling Faculty in the UNF Brooks College of Health make every effort to maintain clear and consistent communication with students through the new student orientation, personal mentoring, timely email correspondence, announcements, practicum and internship seminars, and classroom discussions and other means of communication.
In addition to this guide, you are advised to read the Graduate School Student Handbook as it provides general information applicable to ALL graduate students regardless of their programs of study. While this handbook contains valuable information specifically related to graduate studies in clinical mental health counseling at UNF, the Graduate School Student Handbook addresses policies, procedures and resources related to graduate studies in general at UNF. It is your responsibility to review the information both in this handbook and in the Graduate School Student Handbook as you will be held responsible for abiding by its content.
