The CAS provides post-Master's study which, when combined with SUNY Oneonta Master of Science in Education degree (School Counselor), satisfies the 60 s.h. academic requirement (Master's degree + CAS or related course work) of New York State for Permanent Certification in School Counseling. Two full years of professional experience as a school counselor are also required for permanent certification by New York State. This program can be completed through part-time study. The College allows a maximum of six calendar years to complete all requirements for the program. Since the NYS Provisional Certificate is valid for five years, students are encouraged to complete their CAS within this time period. National Counselor's Exam: Courses offered in the CAS program (school counselor) may be used to fulfill part of the eligibility requirements for the National Counselor's Exam.
