We're not going anywhere :)

The News-Press and Naples Daily News reported today that, "... the board voted to eliminate FGCU's master of education in school counseling degree program. FGCU stopped enrolling new students in the program in 2016"

We are still here and will be for the long-term! The FGCU Counseling program consolidated its two school counseling master’s programs (MED and MA) under the MA degree. No students have been admitted to the MED since 2015 and all school counseling students will continue to graduate with high quality and fully CACREP accredited and Florida DOE approved degrees under the Master of Arts in School Counseling
