Endorsement Policy

Students may request an endorsement (i.e., a verbal or written recommendation) from program faculty in order to gain employment or credentials. Students and graduates of the Ball State MA in Counseling Program will be endorsed by counseling faculty only for positions or credentials for which they have been adequately prepared. Students should seek endorsement only for employment and credentials that are appropriate given their training, coursework and supervised experience. Before giving an endorsement, faculty will first check student records (e.g., GPA, program requirements, graduation status) to ensure that students and graduates are only endorsed for employment or credentials for which they have been adequately trained.
