Financial aid is available to graduate counseling students in several ways. Students may contact the Financial Aid office at Geneva College (724-847-6533) for information about Federal Aid and Loans. The Financial Aid office is located in Alexander hall, Lower Level with Hours: Monday-Friday 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Students qualifying for financial aid need to reapply each year, as do those seeking educational loans. Students should be aware that any change in student status (full-time, part-time) may lead to a change in the financial aid package.
Graduate Assistantships are offered in different ways on a yearly and semester basis. Each one renewable for the following year and/or applicable semester. Positions vary from having responsibility as an assistant in special projects within the program, research, class facilitators and tutoring in the Statistics and/or Research classes. Each of these graduate assistantships would provide a small stipend. Currently, we have 2 graduate assistantships in Geneva’s Counseling Center that includes a tuition discount with a small stipend. For all graduate assistantships, all stipends are considered taxable income. Preliminary discussions about both types of graduate assistantship positions can be discussed with the M.A. in Counseling Program Manager. (724-847-6697)
The Master of Arts in Counseling programs are accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Programs (CACREP).
