Abstract

This presentation will demonstrate how the programmatic model, developed by the University of Arkansas at Little Rock’s (UALR) online Master of Rehabilitation Counseling program, can be adapted by other online programs to meet traditional accreditation standards in their field. The Council on Rehabilitation Education (CORE) accredits Masters programs in Rehabilitation Counseling. Usually these programs are traditional on-campus programs. The UALR program began as a new, completely online program in 2000. Utilizing an approach, which combines established methodologies and technical innovations, the program was able to achieve Full Accreditation by CORE in the shortest time possible. This presentation will focus on the creative techniques developed by the UALR program that has allowed them to deliver required services at a distance that have conventionally been delivered on-campus and in-person.
