Depending on the state you live in, you may have varying expectations placed on you during your journey to licensure. You are always encouraged to explore the requirements of your state prior to choosing any university to attend for your major program.
The CACREP is often listed as an approved accreditation agency in states that accredit masters-level counselors. If you receive a diploma without verifying the accreditation of the school's program, you could run the risk of having your application for licensure declined by your state's licensing department.
The MPCAC is an up-and-coming accreditation agency that is slowly extending its reach to more states each year. Students interested in enrolling in masters programs that have been deemed accredited by this agency should review their state's guidelines on masters-level programs and accreditation for each before submitting their application.
