For information on master’s level counselor licensure in Oklahoma visit Licensure requirements may vary from state to state, so if you plan to seek licensure in another state, check the Professional Licensing Board in that state for more information.


Funding Opportunities

Faculty consistently work very hard to develop relationships with programs and agencies across campus and throughout the community, cultivating potential GA positions for our masters students; however, faculty can neither guarantee nor coordinate funding for incoming students. In an era of decreasing resources in higher education, students interested in GA funding are encouraged to act independently and proactively in attempts to secure any available funding across campus and within the surrounding community. 

For funding and financial support for graduate students including: Scholarships and Travel/Research Grants, Graduate College Tuition Waivers, Fellowships, Graduate Assistantships available within the Graduate College, Funding for Graduate Student Research and Financial Aid links specific to Graduate students and the University of Oklahoma, please visit

For part-time counseling related work for students across a breadth of settings (such as the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, University College, University Library, etc.), please visit

Additional Funding Sources

In addition to GA and university affiliated part-time work positions, our graduate students are eligible to apply for scholarships and grants (links below) to work on their research or to supplement their graduate school education. Scholarships are available on campus and our students are very competitive and successful at obtaining these scholarships. Federal support may also be available for their research and education, including monies from NIH and the Department of Education.
