Official transcripts from all institutions leading to and awarding the applicant’s master’s degree from a regionally accredited institution and all post-baccalaureate study.
An official transcript is one that Azusa Pacific University receives unopened in an envelope sealed by the former institution and that bears the official seal of the college or university. A cumulative minimum 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) grade-point average on the posted degree is required for regular admission status. Provisional admittance may be granted to individuals with a 2.5–2.9 GPA if competency can be shown through multiple measures.
NOTE: Although LPCC coursework is open to all qualified applicants with a master’s degree in a related area, applicants are advised to verify with the Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS) that their master’s degree qualifies to also have the coursework count toward LPCC licensure.
