    Two levels of certification are offered. BCBA requires a master抯 degree and BCABA requires a bachelor抯 degree. Concentration-only students may elect not to take the practicum if they already have eligible required supervisory experience.

    Barnes & Noble College Bookstores, as the university's official bookstore, offers comprehensive bookstore services to our local and online students. While students have the option to purchase textbooks from other online and local sources, there are benefits from purchasing from the university's bookstore (on-campus or online), including better availability and the ability to directly apply financial aid to book orders. The university's bookstore provides the full-spectrum of shipping options. The school insures that required textbooks are available, and then posts them on its website at least one month prior to the start of each term. Students should place their orders early enough to ensure delivery prior to the start of the term. The bookstore may be reached at 800-509-2665 or 954-262-4750.

    A prospective student who requires financial assistance must apply for financial aid while he or she is a candidate for admission. Students/applicants may apply for financial aid online. For additional information or application forms call 800-806-3680 or 954-262-3380. To continue financial aid, at a minimum, enrolled students must demonstrate satisfactory academic progress toward a stated educational objective in accordance with the university抯 policy on satisfactory progress for financial aid recipients.


    Students must complete their program within five years from the date of first enrollment.

Students in the mental health counseling concentration must complete a comprehensive examination as part of degree requirements. In the event that a matriculated student who has been in continuous enrollment does not complete all requirements within the five-year time limit, he or she must enroll in the master's program and:

    Maintain full-time status (minimum six credits per semester, excluding summer sessions. Complete remaining degree requirements, which will include any course work that is more than five years old.
