COVID-19 Statement

We recognize that there are challenges that you may be facing right now. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, many institutions are allowing their students the opportunity to take coursework in a Pass/No Pass format. In response to the unprecedented situation, the Master of Science in Counseling program has decided to accept courses taken in the Pass/No Pass format due to Covid-19. 

In addition, for the 2020-21 application cycle (for admission summer-fall 2021), the Master of Science in Counseling program will not require a GRE or MAT test score as part of the admission packet. All applicants will be required to respond to a writing prompt as a supplement to their application.

Stay well and continue to take care of yourself and others. 


The Oklahoma State University Masters in Counseling program offers two options on both the Stillwater and Tulsa Campuses: School Counseling (57 credits) and Mental Health Counseling (60 credits). We maintain a diverse full-time faculty with years of experience in counseling and counselor education as well as state-of-the-art counselor training centers on both campuses. Our program offers a variety of counseling training opportunities and experiences designed to provide excellent training for becoming an effective counselor in a variety of settings.
