*Currently, in New York State, no counseling-related examination exists for School Counselor certification.  However, school counseling students are allowed to take the National Counselors Exam.  The data reported for school counselors are for those who elect to take the NCE.  Although there is a licensure examination for Mental Health Counselors, individual programs are not granted statistics from the state on their students or graduates.  Again, the data reported here are for those who elect to take the NCE.
