In order to earn the Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology (MACP) degree, students must successfully complete fourteen courses (43 academic credit hours) and a supervised practicum (6 academic credit hours). The total Program consists of 49 academic credit hours. Full-time students should be able to complete the Program in seven trimesters. Part-time students may take up to five years from the date of initial enrollment to complete the Program.
The minimal pass for all courses in the MACP is C+. However, in order to successfully complete and graduate from the program, students must achieve a minimal cumulative grade point average of B (3.0). Students may elect to retake courses in which they have achieved a grade of less than C+. Students receiving a grade of C+ or less in three courses will be at risk of dismissal from the Program. Students with a cumulative grade point average of less than B will not be eligible to begin their practicum.
Students who have completed the requirements for the degree must apply to graduate and pay a graduation fee before the degree and final transcript can be issued. Yorkville University reserves the right to decline to issue degrees or release transcripts to students whose financial accounts are not paid in full at the end of their program.
