Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) was recently recognized by Affordable Colleges Online, a leading education and industry resource for online education information, for having one of the best online counseling programs in the nation. WSSU’s program ranked third in the nation.

For universities to qualify for this ranking they must be public and not for profit. Qualifying schools were then evaluated based on the:

*Count of online master’s degrees available

*Graduate tuition and fees

*Academic and career counseling services

*Job placement for graduates

*AC Online Peer-Based Value (PBV)*

The PBV score compares the cost of each program to the cost of similar programs with the same qualitative score.

WSSU’s Rehabilitation Counseling program provides students with the opportunity to earn a master’s degree in rehabilitation counseling and to become eligible to take the national Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC) examination. Rehabilitation counselors assist individuals who are disabled with obtaining competitive employment and/or achieving independent living goals. The program is accredited by the Council on Rehabilitation Education.

“Congratulations Dr. Yolanda Edwards and the entire Rehabilitation Counseling Department on this awesome accomplishment,” said Peggy Valentine, dean of the WSSU School of Health Sciences. “Being nationally ranked as one of the most notable combinations of academic quality, accommodation, guidance, and affordability is to be celebrated.”
