Selection Process

There are four positions available in the internship class, none pre‑allocated. An Intern Selection Committee, which includes the Director of Training, and selected senior staff members, review and evaluate applications. Interns assist in the interview process. Approximately 30 applicants will be asked to interview during the month of January. Although personal interviews are preferred, telephone/SKYPE interviews will be conducted for those unable to visit the Student Counseling Center.

This internship site agrees to abide by the APPIC policy that no person at this training facility will solicit, accept, or use any ranking-related information from any intern applicant prior to Uniform Notification Day.

Appointments of applicants to internship positions are contingent upon the applicants satisfying certain eligibility requirements. A criminal background check will be performed and clearance is required in order to be employed.
