Students should be especially careful when preparing to register. Please read carefully the instructions for your year and register accordingly. If your class sections are assigned by your department, they will be provided to you prior to registration.

Students are advised to check their state licensure requirements for specific course requirements. Maine and Vermont students should be particularly careful. Massachusetts students should be mindful of specific regulations pertaining to direct service hours and internships. SA/AC students are also reminded they must complete one of their two internships in substance abuse counseling.

If you may wish to be licensed in several states (particularly Vermont and Maine) please refer to their rules and regulations for licensure, prior to registering.
