LAPC: LICENSED ASSOCIATE PROFESSIONAL COUNSELOR

This is a two-year license which allows for the supervised experience required to become a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). While the LAPC has the rights and privileges granted the LPC - the LAPC works under continual supervision and must satisfy all the criteria for the LPC within the two-year period.

Requirements for the LAPC include:
  • Masters degree (48 graduate semester credits) in counseling or other closely related field from an accredited college or university.
  • Specific core counseling coursework within the master's degree.
  • Three letters of reference from master's degree professors, advisors and supervisors.
  • A two-year plan of supervision - including supervisor and "intent to practice" statement.
  • A passing score on the National Counselor Examination (NCE).
