The post master’s Certificate in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (CMHC) is a 16-hour organized sequence of study designed to add on as an endorsement for licensure to meet state credentialing requirements. This post master’s Certificate builds on the foundation of courses taken in a previous master’s level counseling degree. All coursework can be taken online, on campus, or a combination of both. Some online courses do require a residency to demonstrate skills and competencies learned. Please note that students may have to take coursework in a format other than their preference (i.e. online, on campus, or hybrid) in order to complete the certificate within their desired time frame. An applicant is required to have completed a master's degree in counseling or a related field from a regionally accredited institution of higher education.
Please see the attached handout under the Required Courses tab for more information.
This certificate program has been approved for Title IV Federal Financial Aid. Please contact our Financial Aid Office for additional information at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Adler Graduate School cannot guarantee licensure to any student. The Board of Behavioral Health and Therapy (for the state of Minnesota) or other State Licensing Boards (based on the students’ location) determines licensure status. Adler Graduate School cannot be held liable for Board decisions regarding licensure or changes to competencies and requirements.
