This program is designed to meet the educational requirements for clinical mental health counselor licensure in Oregon.

Each state/territory maintains its own licensing or registration requirements. If your intent is to secure licensure outside of Oregon, then BEFORE beginning OSU’s program, review the table below to determine whether OSU has obtained confirmation from the state or territory to formally identify whether this program meets the educational requirements for licensure. If it is currently unknown whether this program meets the education requirements for licensure, the status is "not yet determined."

If this program is identified as “not yet determined" or "does not meet” it may nevertheless meet all or a portion of the educational requirements for licensure. In these instances, we recommend contacting the licensing agency for confirmation, before you begin the OSU program.

Additionally, since state and territory regulations can change, should you pursue this OSU program, we recommend that you regularly check licensure requirements during your studies to ensure ongoing eligibility. To help facilitate this, direct links to the licensing agencies have been provided when possible.
