Exceptional Pass Rates
Since 1996, when the Wake Forest Counseling Program became CACREP accredited and eligible to hold campus administrations of the National Counselor Exam, 100 percent of the graduating students sitting for the exam have passed it. The average composite scores are consistently higher than the average composite scores for all CACREP-approved programs.
The Department of Counseling at Wake Forest is widely regarded as having one of the best master’s degree programs in counseling, While it is not eligible for consideration in the national rankings of counseling programs because it has no doctoral level program, it has twice been selected as the “Outstanding Counselor Education Program” by associations of other counselor educators, mental facilities and schools.
