Program Outcomes

The Counselor Education program at Henderson State University is continuously evaluating the outcomes of our students and regularly assesses the quality of instructional outcomes.

In 2018, Henderson State University’s Clinical Mental Health Counseling program graduated 21 students. Our graduates consistently achieve high passage rates on licensing examinations. The pass rate for Henderson graduates taking the NCE examination in 2013 was 95%. Of those who had to re-take the exam, our rate increased to 99%. Of the admitted students, 90% graduate from the program because they desire to complete their degree. The 10% who do not finish choose to leave the program for personal reasons or to choose a different vocational endeavor. 100% of our graduates found employment.

Our School Counseling track reports similar percentages, outlined below. Recent changes by the Department of Education in Arkansas requires that all applicants seeking a degree in school counseling must pass the Praxis Core to be admitted to our program. All graduates of our school counseling program find jobs quickly after graduation.
