UCO currently offers a graduate course sequence preparing students to sit for certification and licensure as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Our course sequence is verified by the Association of Behavior Analysis International (ABAI) and consists of seven courses. To learn more about behavior analysis, view this informational video from the Behavior Analyst Certification Board.

 All BCBA course sequence candidates must first be admitted to the UCO Jackson College of Graduate Studies (JCGS). After applying to the JCGS, candidates must then fill out the UCO BCBA program application form. Prior to completing the program application, please email Dr. Scott Singleton, program coordinator, to provide notice of your intent to apply.

Program Information

This course sequence is only available to those who have completed or are currently enrolled in a master’s degree program in education, psychology or behavior analysis. Please visit bacb.com for more information on degree requirement standards. In addition to the course sequence, the candidate must complete 1500 hours of supervised field experience. Field experience hours may be collected under a BCBA as soon as the candidate begins the coursework.

Note: The ABAI increased the required number of supervised internship hours for Board Certified Behavior Analysts in January 2022 from 1500 hours to 2000 hours. This increase will be reflected in the 2022-2023 Graduate Catalog.
