Counseling Licensure & Certification

Many educational programs offered by the University of Memphis lead to professional certification and licensure within the State of Tennessee. Counseling is one such program. Students should be aware that licensure and certification requirements vary from state to state and are subject to change at any time. Licensing agencies or boards also may have requirements in addition to an earned degree.

The University of Memphis has not made a determination whether the University of Memphis's programs will meet all of the licensure and certification requirements in each US state or territory. The University of Memphis recommends that students who are not Tennessee residents or who plan to seek licensure or certification outside the state of Tennessee to please contact the appropriate licensing agency or board prior to enrollment in an academic program designed to lead to licensure or certification and discuss their plans with an advisor.

For Counseling programs, the best place to obtain current licensing board contact information listings maintained by the American Counseling Association which may be found here. Additional sources for information on professional licensure and certification may be found here and here.
