The University of Pittsburgh’s Counseling Program, starting in Fall 2023, will enroll students in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program. This change will create a more personalized educational experience by offering a greater selection of elective courses, while maintaining the opportunity to specialize in clinical rehabilitation counseling.

Students entering our existing Clinical Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling (CRMHC) program in Fall 2022 and remaining part-time students who anticipate graduating after August 2023 will transfer into this new program in Spring/Summer 2023. 

In compliance with accreditation requirements, the Counseling program at the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences is fully accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling & Related Educational Programs (CACREP) through 2023. 

The master’s degree program admits 27-32 students in each graduate cohort. The program admits students each year in the fall. Student outcomes are evaluated each year using multiple metrics that are part of the overall program evaluation to assess student learning, faculty effectiveness, and course and curriculum effectiveness.
