Graduates who receive a Master's degree in School Counseling, Educational Administration, or Educational Diagnostics may apply for a New Mexico license. However, in order to receive a New Mexico license in one of these specializations, the graduate must pass the appropriate licensing exam or New Mexico Teacher Assessment.

Individuals who do not wish to apply for a New Mexico license in school counseling, educational administration, educational diagnostics should check with their state's department of education to determine how their licensure requirements compare with New Mexico's requirements.
