OSU Counseling and Psychological Services adheres to all APPIC guidelines and we participate in the Computer Matching for selecting our interns.
After Friday November 3rd, 11:59 pm PST, application deadline, our selection committee will review all completed applications. We will then contact all top-tier applicants to schedule a standardized Skype or telephone interview to be held in early to mid-January. We do not offer on-site interviews. Candidates who are no longer being considered for interviews will be notified by mail or e-mail no later than December 24.
Following the Skype or telephone interviews, we will rank order the remaining candidates and submit their names to National Matching Services. The Training Director will send letters confirming the Match results to matched applicants and their academic program directors according to the APPIC Match Policies. If necessary, this site will also participate in Phase Two of the match process.
University regulations require that if you are matched with our site the university will conduct a criminal background check at no cost to you. While service is contingent on successful completion of a background check, a criminal conviction is not an automatic bar to service at Counseling and Psychological Services.
If you are applying for internship and have been a client here at CAPS, please notify the Training Director. You will not be asked to disclose any information about your treatment other than which CAPS clinicians you have seen. The purpose of this conversation is to help us mitigate any negative consequences from potential multiple relationships.
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.
Equal Opportunity is the opportunity to gain entry to, participate in, and benefit from employment, services, programs, activities, and privileges of the institution regardless of race, national origin, sex, ability or other protected status. OSU's commitment also includes a moral obligation to address the needs of groups historically underrepresented in the institution and those that have faced barriers to equal opportunity, such as discrimination or discriminatory harassment on the basis of protected status.
