“We are proud to have our programs and faculty recognized for their work and diligence in guiding our students in the development of the attitudes, knowledge, and skills required for the ethical provision of quality professional counseling services in line with the rigorous standards of CACREP,” says Dr. Joffrey Suprina, associate professor and dean of the College of Counseling, Psychology and Social Sciences at Argosy University.

As a specialized accrediting body recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), CACREP grants accredited status to graduate-level programs in the professional counseling field.
