MHSRC Application

The Department of Rehabilitation Counseling will begin accepting applications after December 15 so that those students who have taken courses in the Fall semester will have a complete official transcript.

Timeline for application
Applications received by April 15 will be given priority. Applications received after April 15 will be considered on a space available basis.

A hard copy application may also be secured by contacting the department directly or the Office of Student Affairs at 504-568-6299 or email

MHSRC Admission Requirements

1. Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university.
2. Minimum Undergraduate grade point average of 2.5 (in a 4.0 system).
3. Satisfactory Graduate Record Examination Score within the last 5 years
4. References from professors or employers familiar with your work and character.
5. Written essay

Professional work experience in the field of rehabilitation or other human services field will be given strong weight when considering an individual for admission. In some cases, certain coursework pre-requisites may be waived. Such decisions will be made by the departmental admissions committee on a case-by-case basis.

The Department is interested in admitting a committed, qualified, and diverse group of students for each class. For example, a substantially higher GPA than that required may be used to offset a lower GRE score. Frequently, the applicant pool has more competitive GPA‘s than GRE scores.

The admissions committee will consider all three General Test sections of the GRE; Verbal, Quantitative, and Analytical Writing, as each section provides insight into a different aspect of the prospective student. The department will continue to require the GRE and utilize other criteria, as stated above, to determine admissions decisions.
