2020-2021 Catalog Winter Update

Substance Use Disorder Professional, Graduate Certificate

This certification program provides Master's-trained professionals with the educational requirements required for certification as a Substance Use Disorder Professional with Alternate Training (WAC-246-811-990).

Since requirements vary and are subject to change, City University of Seattle cannot guarantee eligibility for post-graduate credentials administered by state authorities, including licensure, certification, and registration. Professional credentials have requirements in addition to completing a specific degree or set of courses, and City University of Seattle cannot guarantee the receipt of such credentials even if a graduate meets the educational requirements of a given jurisdiction.



Admission Requirements

In addition to City University of Seattle's graduate admission requirements, found under Admissions in the catalog menu, this program is restricted to students who have a Master's level degree in counseling or a related field.
