CACREP is an organization that accredits master’s and doctoral degree counseling programs offered by colleges and universities both in the United States and around the world.

Mercer University offers graduate counseling programs that are accredited by CACREP until October 31, 2024 under the 2009 Standards. Benefits of this accreditation include increased program recognition and an enhanced program value. Students who engage in these courses gain knowledge in the eight common core curricular experiences identified in CACREP standards: professional orientation and ethical practice, social and cultural diversity, human growth and development, group work, assessment, helping relationships, research and program evaluation, and career development.
