CECP Students Obtain 100% Pass Rate on National Examination

Graduate students from the Department of Counselor Education and Counseling Psychology (CECP) all passed the National Counselor Examination for Licensure and Certification (NCE) this year.

The NCE assesses knowledge, skills and abilities determined to be important for providing effective counseling services. It is a requirement for licensure as a counselor in many states, representing one of two examination options for the National Certified Counselor (NCC) certification.

Over the years Marquette University CECP graduates consistently obtain scores on this national exam that exceed national means by a significant margin. In commenting on this impressive record, Dean Bill Henk noted the enormous pride that the College of Education takes in the way that our students have performed, and went on to say, "The consistently superior performance achieved by our CECP students on this national examination is an affirmation of the extraordinary caliber of the program, the decided skill of our faculty, and the exceptional capacity of our students. ”

Congratulations to our graduates on achieving this level of excellence.
