A Master of Arts in Education: Educational Counseling and PPS Credential in School Counseling are required.

A required transcript evaluation of students’ current PPS school counseling courses will determine which courses will count toward the PPS School Psychology Credential.


Requirements are the same as for Azusa Pacific University’s Master of Arts in Education: Educational Psychology with an embedded School Psychology Credential Program with the exception that no Graduate Research Project (GRP) is required.

Students must successfully pass the Praxis II (School Psychology) Exam with a score of 165 or greater. Credential-only candidates are not eligible to become Nationally Certified School Psychologists (NCSP).
