About this course:

Drawing on the theory and information presented in the required courses included in the UCLA College Counseling certificate program, this 45-hour course provides a project-based learning approach for Practicum-ready students to apply their knowledge and experience. Using the latest research and publications available in the field, this interactive class draws on the theory and information presented in other required courses and challenges students to apply their knowledge, strategies, and approaches with real life students. Emphasis is on the development of tools and strategies in determining student goals, aspirations, college lists, admission, and financial options—all focused on helping students and their families make the final college decision. This course is designed to meet the needs of counselors in public, private, or independent settings.
Students must have completed two other courses before becoming enrolled in Counseling the College Bound Student, and the College Admission Process.
