Basic Skills Requirement for School Counseling and School Psychology

Applicants: Complete Basic Skills Requirement Worksheet (PDF)

Applicants to the School Counseling and School Psychology must self-attest to meeting each of the three required sections of the Basic Skills Requirement by completing and uploading the Basic Skills Requirement Worksheet (PDF) in the 'Documents' tab in the Program Materials section of Cal State Apply.

Applicants who are admitted to the School Counseling and School Psychology programs must demonstrate that they have met the Basic Skills Requirement (BSR) and have several ways to do so, as noted below. Admitted students will be required to submit official documentation as a condition of their admission, and cannot matriculate into the program if they have not met the BSR at the time of admission.

*NOTE: If you are using test scores to meet all, or part, of the Basic Skills Requirement:

  • Applicants are encouraged to include a copy of the test score report(s) along with the worksheet, but it is not required.
  • Please note that those offered admission will then be required to provide official score reports.
