Offer the NCC Application to Your Students

With the National Certified Counselor (NCC) application options for participating universities, you can give your students the opportunity to apply for the NCC and sit for the National Counselor Examination for Licensure and Certification (NCE) while still enrolled.

Apply to participate and join the more than 350 campuses nationwide offering this unique opportunity to their students.

Benefits for Your Program

In addition to the benefits your students will receive from certification and taking the NCE in a comfortable campus environment, your program will receive aggregate score information on students’ exam performance, including comparisons to national data. Many students look for programs that participate in the NCC application, making it an effective recruitment tool.

Eligibility Criteria

To participate in the NCC application, your program must be at a regionally accredited university or college. To offer the NCE on campus during a given application cycle, at least three students must apply for the NCC. For complete eligibility requirements, download the application to participate.

Please note that your program cannot use the NCC application process or NCE examination as a program exit requirement. If your program is looking for a psychometrically sound exit examination for counseling students, you want the Counselor Preparation Comprehensive Examination (CPCE), from the Center for Credentialing & Education (CCE).

Program Expectations

In addition to nominating a campus coordinator to communicate with NBCC and submit a list of eligible students, participating programs must ensure that students understand the NCC application process and what it means.
