The Counseling Programs at FGCU

The Counseling Department offers two programs that are accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP): an MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and both an MA and MEd in School Counseling. Our School Counseling programs are additionally approved by the state of Florida DOE for initial and added certification and are accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation, CAEP (formerly the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education or NCATE.)
The Counseling Programs at FGCU have a long history of graduates in Southwest Florida dating back to 1991 through the USF at Fort Myers branch campus. In these last two decades, the program has grown and evolved to meet local and national needs and practices and has always provided its graduates with high levels of skill, professionalism, and integrity. Our Southwest Florida community has many opportunities to serve its children, adults and families in its schools, community agencies, advocacy groups, health care, and other providers of support and clinical services. Our faculty, have varying expertise areas, research interests, and backgrounds as school and mental health counselors and often bring their professional experiences and research interests to the classroom to ensure that we create an engaging and realistic learning environment.
The FGCU MA program in Clinical Mental Health Counseling fully prepares students to be eligible for registered intern status on the way to licensure as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Florida. Graduates from this program work in community agencies, mental health settings, and private practices after graduation and most seek and achieve licensure.
Our MA program in School Counseling provides students who do not have prior teacher education training or certification to become certified educators in School Counseling (PK-12). Our MEd program provides an additional certification area in School Counseling (PK-12) for those who already have one or more teacher certifications or preparation. The programs thus prepare school counseling leaders who can design, deliver and evaluation curriculum and programming in academic, career, and personal/social development according to American School Counselor Association's National Model and other key educational standards. Students in the MA program enroll for nine credits of educator preparation courses prior to joining the MEd cohort.

Florida CAN releases FAFSA data for over 600 schools

Florida CAN releases FAFSA data for over 600 schools

New, interactive dashboard allows users to track school, district and state-level FAFSA completion data through spring 2016
Tampa, FL — Florida College Access Network (Florida CAN) has released theFlorida FAFSA Finish Line dashboard
 with new data for 2016, showing the number of 12th graders throughout the state who have completed the form.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid
 (FAFSA) determines eligibility for $150 billion in federal financial aid programs each year, yet tens of thousands of eligible Florida students neglect to fill out the form.  Previous estimates from Florida CAN show Florida students leave behind over $100 million in federal Pell Grants each year, not including state aid programs like the Florida Student Assistance Grant, which also requires a completed FAFSA.

The Florida FAFSA Finish Line data dashboard allows schools, districts and community partners to view FAFSA completion rates in near-real time with data updates taking place weekly through March and bi-weekly through June.
 Click image to view data
“Money should never be the reason why students choose not to go to college,” said Troy Miller, Associate Director for Research and Policy for Florida CAN. “This data dashboard can help schools, districts and community partners make sure their students complete the FAFSA and have a plan for life after high school.”

To spark an increase in FAFSA completions among high school seniors, last December Florida CAN announced the Florida FAFSA Challenge to encourage all schools and districts to raise FAFSA completion rates by 5% in 2016.  Schools and districts that sign up for the challenge receive support, resources and recognition, with trophies going to top performers in the state.

Each week, schools and districts with the highest FAFSA completion rates ("MVP"), the most improved FAFSA completion rates ("Most Improved"), and the closest to the 5% goal in the fewest amount of days ("Fastest Lap") will be featured in the FAFSA Challenge Leaderboard, updated each week through March 31, 2016.  A downloadable version of the most recent Leaderboard with data through February 5, 2016 can be found here

Schools and districts interested in participating in the Florida FAFSA Challenge can learn more and register here

For more information on FAFSA completion data, research and resources, see these previous releases by Florida CAN: A downloadable version (.PDF) of this press release can be found here

The Florida FAFSA Challenge is possible thanks to the support of the Helios Education Foundation
 and Swift Family Foundation
