Program Outcomes

The program is a 60-unit program that seeks to approximately 30 students per year and takes an average of 5 semesters (2.5 years) to complete. Average cost to complete the program is $19,000 over a period of 2.5 years.

GRANT

Student outcomes are evaluated each year using field-site evaluation and learning objective rubrics as a part of overall program evaluation. The Program has a U.S. Department of Education, Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) training grant that generates an average of $130,000 annually for student support in the form of four (4) semesters of paid tuition, professional development, and related expenses.

We encourage and support students to present at regional, state, and national rehabilitation counseling conferences. In the 2015-2016 academic year we provided funds to nine CRMHC students so that they could attend and present at national conferences (e.g., ACA, NCRE, NAMRC).

Last year students presented at a multitude of conferences which included the: the National Council on Rehabilitation Education (NCRE) Conference in April 2016 in Newport Beach, CA, the NCRE Conference in October 2015 in Arlington, VA, the National Association of Multicultural and Rehabilitation Concerns in New Orleans, LA in July 2016 and the American Counseling Association Conference in April 2017 in San Francisco, CA.
