Master's programs meeting the minimum requirements of the Professional Preparation Commission are so noted on program description pages. The Professional Preparation Commission believes that the following four criteria are important minimal standards for graduate preparation programs. Minimum criteria are considered met if the program can affirmatively answer the following four questions:
1) Does the program have at least one full-time faculty member
to provide leadership for the program?
2) Does the program have at least four content courses about student services/affairs/development and the college student/environment?
3) Is the program's curriculum at least a two-year (or equivalent) curriculum?
4) Does the program require at least one student personnel practicum/field experience for students?
A negative answer to any of the four questions resulted in the program not receiving the Professional Preparation Commission designation.
Information about standards, certification, and licensure in this Directory is provided by representatives of the graduate programs themselves. Inquires about confirmation of qualification and details about review should be directed to the program directors and the evaluating agencies.
