If you are interested in applying to the program please fill out the application form.

Applications for the Fall cohort are reviewed in the summer. Prior to admission into the ADC program you may be invited to attend an informational and orientation session where you will meet ADC faculty, discuss program details, ask questions, and participate in group exercises. Within a few weeks after the orientation meeting has concluded students will be contacted and informed of their admission status. Students can request ADC advisors and faculty review their application in November for Spring admission if special circumstances dictate. Spring admission students will also be expected to attend an orientation meeting prior to learning their admission status.

Workers in the Alcohol and Drug Counseling field must be healthier than the clients they are working with.
