Professional Licensure and Certification Disclosure

Clinical Mental Health Counseling (MA), Clinical Mental Health Counseling Advanced Certificate, Psychology (MA), Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology

Medaille College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE). The MSCHE is an institutional accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. The Board of Regents in New York State (NYS) grants professional licensure/certificates to qualified candidates.  Medaille College is an institutional member of the Council for the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA). NC-SARA membership does not grant reciprocity or exempt Medaille College from state professional licensing/certification requirements.

The CMHC program and Clinical Psychology Program are listed as leading to licensure in New York (see the State Inventory of Registered Programs).  Medaille College has not made a determination of the prerequisites for licensure or certification for other individual states or countries. Before enrolling in an academic program, check with your state education department for specific requirements. Additional state information can be found here.

A career in the field of Clinical Mental Health Counseling or Clinical Psychology may involve meeting certain licensing, certifications, training or other requirements that can vary by state. Although the CMHC and PsyD Program are designed to meet accreditation and licensure requirements, Medaille College has not identified the educational prerequisites for such licenses/certifications and has not determined whether our programs will satisfy these requirements in states other than New York.  Additionally, Medaille College makes no representations regarding whether a particular program will qualify a graduate for employment in any specific position. Applicants are encouraged to check with the licensing agency in their state for specific requirements and to investigate  the expectations for any agency or employer with which they may wish to seek employment.

All applicants to the Mental Health Counseling or Clinical Psychology programs should be aware that employers may consider numerous factors when determining eligibility or suitability for employment including, but not limited to: criminal background screening, U.S. citizenship, state residency, physical and psychological health, age and military discharge information. Similarly, employers in the industry may require drug screens as a condition to employment and/or continued employment. A criminal conviction and/or record of certain other conduct may prevent or hinder a graduate’s employment in the field. The enrolling applicant has been apprised of these matters and enrolls in this program with full understanding of the same.
