BOZEMAN— Students enrolling in Montana State University’s online addiction counseling graduate program must submit all enrollment materials by Tuesday, July 15.

MSU offers online graduate courses for those interested in working in the addiction counseling field. The program, available to Montana and out-of-state residents, provides the required coursework for Montana licensure requirements. Out-of-state students should check their state’s general licensing criteria. State licensure also requires additional coursework, clinical internship and a board exam.

Fall courses include "Alcohol and Drug Studies," LAC 504, and  "Assessment, Treatment, Planning and Ethics of Addiction Counseling," LAC 503. Both courses are fully online and available to students regardless of residency. Students must be admitted into the program to take these courses. 

The admission deadline for students starting the program next spring is Nov. 15.

Graduate Certificate requirements vary based on a student’s bachelor’s degree and prior coursework. Personalized student advising is provided for students accepted into the program.
