Training the best since 1968

The Counseling and School Psychology Department, within the College of Education and Professional Studies (CEPS), offers graduate education to prepare individuals seeking to work in schools as a School Counselorlink or School Psychologistlink. Both programs are approved by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPIlink), and the School Psychology program is accredited by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASPlink). 

  • Courses are conveniently offered in the evening at either our main campus or at our Hudson Center, both located within minutes of the Twin Cities, Minnesota metro area.
  • Students work closely with faculty in small classes and lab facilities.
  • Students gain a very broad and diverse skill set through each of these programs, as well as exceptional field placement and experiences in a variety of settings.
  • Students work with advisors to determine a successful plan for program completion, including extensive research opportunities if interested. 

Check out the program pages for more information, or contact the Department Chair, Dr. Mark Gillenmail, with questions.

Application deadlines for each program are as follows:

  • Counseling: October 1 (for spring admission) and February 1 (for fall admission)
  • School Psychology: February 1 (fall admission only)

The next department open house will be held during the Fall 2014 semester (specific date TBD). This event will take place in the Wyman Education Building on the UW-RF campus. Open House events include Q and A with the faculty, interactions with current students and alumni, and tours of program facilities and resources. Prospective applicants to the Counseling or School Psychology graduate programs are highly encouraged to attend. For additional details, contact Dr. Mark Gillenmail, Department Chair.
