Certification Preparation Program
These are programs of study which do not lead to a degree or to an EKU awarded recognition but instead prepare the student, upon recommendation from EKU, for professional certification by the Commonwealth of Kentucky Education Professional Standards Board.
Standard Guidance Certification Program
This program allows those holding the Provisional Certificate in Elementary, Secondary, or P-12 grades in School Counseling, to convert their provisional certification into Standard Guidance Certification. Students holding a 48-hour master degree in School Counseling are required to earn 6 graduate hours above their masters degree. Students holding anything other than the 48-hour master in School Counseling will have to earn the equivalent of the current 48-hour Masters in School Counseling plus an additional 6 graduate hours in approved electives.
