The RAMPSM application process should be the culmination of the implementation of a school counseling program. Once your school has a program in place, you will need at least one entire academic year to collect the data and information needed to fulfill the RAMP application requirements. 

Applications for 2020 and 2021 may use either the ASCA National Model third edition or the fourth edition and will be evaluated on the corresponding rubric. Applications for 2022 and beyond must use the fourth edition and will be evaluated based on the fourth edition rubric. Learn about the third edition application process or the fourth edition application process.
