Richmont Students Garner 98 Percent Passing Record On National Counselor Examination

Friday, October 25, 2013

Sixty-two of Richmont’s graduating students took the National Counselor Examination for Licensure and Certification and scored a high passing rate of 98.39 percent for the year.

When the NCE results were combined for Richmont’s Atlanta and Chattanooga campuses students’ scores surpassed the scores of other students from both CACREP accredited and Non-CACREP accredited institutions who took the exam in every single category.

“This year’s NCE scores simply confirm what many of us already knew: that the students and faculty at Richmont are incredibly talented,” said President Bob Rodgers. “The Board of Trustees and I are extremely proud of the quality of Richmont’s faculty and the performance of each of our students. This year’s passing rate and individual scores are not only nationally impressive, but they continue a well-established legacy of students score in the 90th percentile on the NCE.”

According to the National Board of Certified Counselors, the NCE is used to “…assess knowledge, skills, and abilities viewed as important for providing effective counseling services…It is intended to assess cognitive knowledge which should be known by all counselors regardless of their individual professional specialties.” After completing the four hour, 200 multiple choice question exam, students who satisfactorily perform on the NCE are eligible to become a National Certified Counselor. A passing score on the NCE is required for licensure as a professional counselor in most states, including Georgia and Tennessee. 

“We are tremendously proud of our recent graduates who took the NCE,” said Dr. Keny Felix, dean of the School of Counseling. “This year’s scores continue to reflect the high degree of academic excellence at Richmont. We look forward to our graduates’ continued success as they enter the mental health field and fulfill their calling as professional counselors.”
