Graduate Certificate in Rehabilitation Counseling

The university offers a variety of programs leading to a certificate of competency in special areas. Certificates may be earned by regularly matriculated or extended learning students and denote successful completion of a prescribed program of study designed to impart specified professional/vocational/career competencies, or produce mastery of the content of a sub-field of an academic major (discipline), or provide exposure to the range of materials in a traditional or emerging interdisciplinary field.

Courses offered for the certificate may be the same ones used to satisfy major, minor, credential or general education requirements. In order to qualify for a certificate, undergraduate candidates must earn a grade point average of 2.0 ('C') or better in applicable course work. Postbaccalaureate candidates must earn a grade point average of 2.5. Standards for individual programs may exceed this minimum. Candidates must also receive two-thirds of their certificate-applicable credit from the university. The transferring of credit or the substitution of courses may occur only after application to the appropriate campus authority.

The Rehabilitation Counseling Certificate is reserved for individuals who possess a Master’s degree in a related field (i.e., social work, psychology, etc.) and are interested in obtaining knowledge and training in Rehabilitation Counseling. 

You can find additional details by clicking on the program website.

Note:  Certificate courses are offered at the CSUSB main campus.  There is NOT an on-line option for the certificate program at CSUSB.
