I’m told you do not recognize a master’s degree from an online school like Grand Canyon University or Capella. Is that true?
I’m presently looking at those two online schools and Argosy University. Each program has ups and downs, but I need to know if the two online schools are even worth considering.
Do I need to get an MS or will an MA do?
Thank you for your time,

Please look at the requirements for the new LPCC license in CA on our website <calpcc.org> under The LPCC. If you will begin your degree before August 1, 2012, look at the requirements under "Before 2012". After that date the requirements go up. You can use an online degree for licensure, as long as it is accredited by a regional accrediting agency and the degree fulfills the licensure requirements. The Board of Behavioral Sciences <www.bbs.ca.gov> will soon publish a list of programs that have submitted their programs and have been approved for the LPCC.
In retrospect, I look like an idiot, but a big thanks to Dean Porter for answering me.
