Graduate Tuition to Meet Licensing Requirements in Maryland
Organized by: Cathy Hubbard
I am 59 years old and returning to graduate school to complete five counseling courses the Maryland licensing board deemed I should have had in my doctoral program. I receved my doctorate in counseling to augment a past career in faith-based organizations. At that time I didn't seek licensure. I'm now working as a grief counselor and would like to obtain my license so I may counsel clients in addition to working with hospice. I've managed to put myself through school with only two small loans I paid off before graduation! :-) Now I am unable to qualify for financial aid as I am not earning a degree. In the highly lucrative field of social services (Yeah, right) I am struggling mightly to pay my tuition of $390.00/per hour. By the way, the scool I am attending is the least expensive, accredited school I could find(University of the Cumberlands). Would you help this ripe student take this final step in her passion to help folks to a better life?
