Experience Component

EXPERIENCE: Counseling experience under the supervision of a licensed professional counselor is required to qualify for a full professional counselor license. All supervised experience obtained in Michigan must be completed after the limited counselor license has been issued. Supervised experience gained prior to obtaining the limited license cannot be counted toward licensure. Individuals with a Master’s degree must accrue 3,000 hours of post-degree counseling experience in not less than a two-year period with at least 100 hours accrued in the immediate physical presence of the supervisor. Individuals who have completed 30 semester hours or 45 quarter hours of graduate study in counseling beyond a Master’s degree must accrue 1,500 hours of post degree counseling experience in not less than a one-year period with at least 50 hours accrued in the immediate physical presence of the supervisor.
