Students can obtain a meal plan for the academic year which varies in cost depending upon the number of weekly meals on the plan. All students who live in University-owned housing must select one of the residential meal plans. There are also meal plans available for students living off-campus. Some of the graduate assistantships available at the University include both housing and a meal plan as part of the assistantship support.
Please also note that the University of Lynchburg will need verification that the coursework you have completed at the undergraduate level is equivalent to a bachelor’s degree program in the United States.
While the counselor education program is 48 hours for school counseling and 60 hours for clinical mental health counseling and will require a minimum of two full years, several of the other master’s programs potentially may be completed in 15 to 18 months depending on course sequences.
