The Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) recently approved Richmont Graduate University’s newly launched Online Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program. The online program was determined to be equivalent to the traditional program, which has been fully accredited since 2015. This accomplishment signifies that the online program meets the highest educational and clinical training standards within the counseling profession.
Dr. Stanley Hoover, Associate Professor of Counseling & Online Program Director at Richmont Graduate University, states “This is a significant achievement that affirms the quality and value of our online program. It reflects a great deal of hard work by an outstanding team of faculty and staff who are deeply invested in advancing Richmont’s mission further than ever.”
While the number of online courses offered by the School of Counseling has increased in recent years, students now have the option to complete their entire degrees through distance learning and a series of in-person residencies. This affords students greater flexibility and convenience while also engaging them in the rigorous, highly experiential clinical training for which Richmont is known. Expanding online teaching and learning in these ways reflects the University’s commitment to excellence and innovation. It also creates opportunities for students from all over the world to become part of the Richmont community.
