Program Outcomes Report

Counseling and Human Development Program Outcomes Report

 

In this reporting period (through Spring 2014) 13 students graduated. The overall completion rate within the expected time frame is 75% for this group of recent graduates. This completion rate includes both CMHC students and Dual students (these complete both the CMHC and SC programs). The overall completion rate within expected time frame for the CMHC program alone is 77% and for the Dual (both CMHC and SC programs) is 71%. In the current reporting period, the number of years to complete the CMHC program has varied from 2.3 years to 4.3 years with an average of 3 years, and the number of years to complete the Dual (both CMHC and SC programs) has varied from 2.7 to 4.3 years with an average of 3.8 years. The Counseling and Human Development program does not operate on a strict cohort model and accommodates both full-time and part-time students. Most all students work full-time while they are in the program and thus their student status (full-time vs part-time) may vary from semester to semester. Those who start as full-time students and wish to maintain employment, become part-time students during Practicum and Internship. Over the last eight years, CMHC (including Dual) students have a 100% pass rate on the NCE for initial licensure, and have an 83 – 90% pass rate on the NCMHCE for the independent licensure. The job placement rate for CMHC (and Dual) students over the last 180 days is 77% (CMHC and Dual students); this includes those who graduated in May, 2014.
