Costs and Expenses
As SDSU guarantees on-campus housing for all first-time freshmen and non-local sophomores, on-campus housing for non-required students is limited.
However, transfer, upper division, and graduate students are able to apply to be on the interest list via the housing portal. Please note that SDSU cannot guarantee a space for non-required students. If you have any questions, please contact SDSU Housing.
GRE Requirement Suspended for Spring and Fall 2021
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, SDSU has suspended the requirement that applicants for graduate study submit GRE scores for the Spring and Fall 2021 admissions cycle. If you have any questions about this policy, please contact the program advisor.
- SDSU's School Counseling coursework (62 units - which is is more than the 48 required for CA) aligns with CACREP requirements (http://www.cacrep.org/section-5-entry-level-specialty-areas-school-counseling).
- Our program is both NCATE and CTCC accredited.
- CACREP is not required in CA and in terms of employability, our students have a very high success rate in CA and in many other states.
- In addition, our program requires the PRAXIS test (our students' scores typically exceed all minimums in all states) and credentials earned in CA are portable. Many of our students are employed in states other than CA.
