Questions to Ask Educational Institutions When Exploring Potential Doctoral Programs

  • Is your program CACREP accredited? CACREP programs can be verified at
  • Do you have a document that identifies the doctoral classes, and how they fit with the CACREP standards?
  • Is your master's program currently CACREP accredited?
  • Is the degree a Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision? If not, what degree(s) do you offer?
  • Who will be teaching in the doctoral program? What are their credentials?
  • What is the average class size?
  • What is the format of the classes (face-to-face, online, hybrid)?
  • What kinds of students are most successful in your program?
  • What is the cost per credit hour?
  • What are alumni doing with this degree?  What are they doing with other degrees from this institution?
  • Are there any pending sanctions against the institution? Have any of the institutions' programs lost accreditation in the last 5 years (SACS, CACREP, NCATE)?

Questions to Ask Future Employers When Exploring Potential Doctoral Programs

  • In your opinion, what is the reputation of this institution? program? faculty?
  • Are there additional experiences that would make me more marketable for this job and/or company?
