"The Counselor Education program at the University of Central Florida is preparing me to be the best Mental Health Counselor that I can possibly be. I constantly feel as though I am being challenged, heard and guided. UCF is in the top 10 CACREP accredited school and I am so thankful to be a part of this community. I have elected to pay for my graduate education from my own pocket; I have not taken out any student loans. Partaking in this route for school payment, I have had to work 2-3 jobs at one time. My first semester of graduate school was a very big adjustment; a new schedule, a larger workload, and 2 jobs. To say I was overwhelmed would be an understatement but within my program, I felt nothing short of supported. To be in such a prestigious program, and be surrounded by such support is incredibly empowering. Anyone considering this program, I would recommend it for it's accreditation, education and the affordable in-state tuition. I'm very proud to be a Knight!"

"The faculty is top notch. They are very active in the field and write and publish many of the text books out there on counseling. The counseling center on campus is an amazing experience for prac 1 and 2. The classes that are required to the ensure quality care for your clients. The program is a journey professionally and personally."

"This graduate program is one of the best in the country. Not only did it make the top 100 for counselor education, but in recent years it jumped from number 11 to number 9. The program is CACREP accredited; this is important because now in the state of Florida this is a REQUIREMENT for certification as a mental health counselor. The faculty of this program take the emotional wellness of it's students seriously and they make an effort to keep up with the students and make sure that they are taking care of themselves so that they will be better able to help clients and care for themselves after graduation. Certificates in Play Therapy and Career Counseling are also available. One of the cons is the amount of time the program takes. It is a three year program, in addition to the two years after graduation required for certification by the state of Florida. Also, none of the internships which are required for graduation are paid, which is an added difficulty when it comes to trying to also hold a job and pay for school. In addition, there is no PhD program for mental health counseling at this school. There are however programs for an EdS. and PhD in School Counseling."

"The pros of my graduate program: experiential learning, professors/doc students give feedback that can be applied, advisors are helpful and are present, class sizes are small and allow for more indepth discussion and hands on learning."

"There are so many caring and concerned people that are apart of this graduate program, not only the faculty and staff but the Doctoral Students are some of the most involved people with the incoming MA students. Once admitted into the program it was like entering into a big family, that is not only concerned with how much you learn, but also how much you grow as an individual."
