C.H.D. Academic Guidelines

Persons with a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university, who demonstrate good scholastic standing and personal and professional potential, will be considered for admission to the CHD program. Applicants should contact the Admissions Office at least six weeks before classes begin. Other requirements include:

  • Completed application form accompanied by a nonrefundable application/registration fee of $25
  • Official transcript(s) of undergraduate and all other graduate study sent directly from the applicant’s college or university to Walsh’s Admission Office. Transcripts are not necessary for Walsh University (formerly Walsh College) graduates
  • Three recommendations — CHD Program forms completed by persons qualified to appraise scholastic aptitude, personal and professional promise such as a past instructor or a professional working in the mental health field
  • At least a 3.0 grade point average (GPA) on a 4.0 scale and either a score of 145 verbal and 146 quantitative on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) (effective 2012) or a minimum score of 397 on the Miller Analogies Test (MAT) (effective 2012).
  • A notarized affidavit of good moral conduct

In-state applicants will complete the writing sample at Walsh University and may schedule it before or after their interview with the Program Director. Applicants should contact the CHD Program administrative assistant at 330-490-7211 for scheduling. Applicants from other countries or those who must complete a telephone interview need to contact the Program Secretary for instructions regarding completing the writing sample.

Registration Procedures

To register for classes, students must submit proposed coursework to their advisor for approval. Students are expected to plan their coursework with their advisor on the CHD Prospectus. Students register for classes by submitting their approved registration form to the Student Service Center after they have met with their advisor.

Categories of Graduate Students

  • NON-MATRICULATED STUDENT — students who do not intend to pursue a degree in counseling. Generally, these are "licensure only" students who already have a master’s degree and are completing courses required for school or clinical mental health counseling licensure in Ohio. A CHD degree-seeking student cannot be enrolled as a non-matriculated student.
  • MATRICULATED STUDENT — graduate students who have met all admission requirements for the CHD master’s degree program.
  • CANDIDACY — matriculated students who have taken at least half of the course work for their CHD program (including a process course) and successfully completed such courses with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher. A student will be considered for candidacy for a master’s degree after the following requirements are met:
  • A minimum of half of the course work for the program must be completed;
  • The student must have a 3.0 cumulative grade point average or better in all courses taken at Walsh University;
  • Faculty review of student retention records and faculty endorsement;
  • The Graduate Council must review and recommend the student for advancement to candidacy.
    After review, the student will be notified of his/her standing in the program.
  • Continued enrollment in the Master’s program is contingent upon achievement of candidacy.

Academic Advising

Graduate students in all categories are to consult with advisors. The advisor’s duties are to serve as consultant in planning the student’s program, endorsing the student’s application for degree candidacy, and arranging for required comprehensive examination.

A consultation with the advisor is required prior to registration for graduate courses through the Cavalier Center online registration.

Comprehensive Examination

A final comprehensive examination covering the student’s area of specialization is required in the Counseling and Human Development program. The examination is taken during the last semester the student is completing course requirements or after all course work is completed. Those who fail the comprehensive examination may take a second examination as defined by program policy. If the second examination also is unsatisfactory, matriculation will be terminated. Application for the comprehensive examination must be filed in the CHD Program Office.
