CACREP and Supervised Professional Practice
There have been many telephone calls and emails regarding CACREP accredited universities and licensure requirements. North Carolina does not require that applicants attend a CACREP accredited higher education institution. North Carolina requires that all LPC Associates complete 3,000 hours of supervised professional practice (under a Board-approved supervisor) prior to applying for the LPC license. There are no exemptions from the required supervised work experience based on the accreditation status of a graduate program. If you have questions, please contact the Board by email.
