Each state has its own education certification board with its own certification requirements.  Consequently, although the educator certification programs at the University of South Carolina are fully accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and are South Carolina State approved programs for educator certification, we cannot confirm that the programs meet the requirements for educator certification in another state. However, South Carolina is part of the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC) Interstate Agreement.  Per their website: “The NASDTEC Interstate Agreement facilitates the mobility of educators among the states and other jurisdictions that are members of NASDTEC and have signed the Agreement. Although there may be conditions applicable to individual jurisdictions, the Agreement makes it possible for an educator who completed an approved program and/or who holds a certificate or license in one jurisdiction to earn a certificate or license in another state or jurisdiction.” A list of all states that have signed on to NASDTEC agreement can be found at the link provided above. Upon successful completion of an educator program and passing scores on appropriate educator certification exams (if required by the state in which the student is seeking certification), students may seek certification through application to a state’s board of education.  Students wishing to seek certification in a state other than South Carolina must contact that state’s educator certification board to determine requirements.

School of Medicine  M.S. in Genetic Counseling

The Genetic Counseling Program at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Genetic Counseling, thereby making our graduates eligible to sit for the American Board of Genetic Counseling national certification examination. Some states have licensure for genetic counselors and some have not enacted licensure legislation/regulations.  States with licensure have a licensing board with their own genetic counselor licensure requirements.  State licensing laws typically require graduation from an ACGC accredited program and passing the ABGC national certification examination in order for a genetic counselor to apply for professional licensure.  We cannot guarantee that the program meets the requirements for genetic counselor licensure in every state. Candidates for licensure must apply and meet the requirements for professional licensure in the state of choice and meet that state’s current regulations for genetic counselor licensure. Click here for current information for states that have enacted genetic counselor licensure.

On July 1, 2017, the Council for Accreditation of Counseling & Related Educational Programs (CACREP) assumed responsibility for carrying out the mission and vision of the Council on Rehabilitation Education (CORE). All graduate programs that were formerly accredited by CORE are now accredited by CACREP. The USC Rehabilitation Counseling Program was most recently accredited by CORE in 2012 and received a full 8-year accreditation (2012-2020). We are now accredited as a rehabilitation counseling program by CACREP through 2020.Certification: Because our program is CORE/CACREP accredited, all students who have successfully completed 75% of their coursework and all graduates of the rehabilitation counseling program are eligible to take the exam administered by the Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification (CRCC) that leads to the nationally recognized Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC) credential. This credential is available to all students and program graduates, including those students who do not live in the state of South Carolina. Licensure: Each state has its own licensing board with its own counselor licensure requirements. The state of South Carolina requires, in part, that applicants for counselor licensure complete coursework in 10 specific content areas. Students interested in counselor licensure must take additional coursework to become eligible to take the National Counselor Examination (NCE) or the National Clinical Mental Health Counselor Examination (NCMHCE) that leads to counselor licensure in SC. Our program offers the coursework that is required. We cannot confirm that the program meets the requirements for professional licensure in another state.  For students not living in South Carolina, click here for contact information for licensure in specific states. If a current student is considering relocating to another state after being admitted into the program, the student must contact the program director to discuss how the move may impact their ability to participate in academic courses (distributed learning) and clinical practicum (experiential learning) opportunities in a different state.
