We only accept applicants from APA or CPA-accredited programs. Applicants must have completed a minimum of 450 adult and adolescent hours.  At least 225 of these hours must be in individual (adult or adolescent) therapy (less than 450 direct hours are considered, as long as applicants have a minimum of 225 hours of adult/adolescent individual counseling experience). We do not count child or pre-school hours as part of these totals.  We count couples therapy hours but not family therapy.  Please notify the Training Director if you have questions about your hours. Applicants must have completed at least one practicum experience in a university counseling center.

All coursework toward the doctoral degree must be completed by the beginning of the internship year. Required courses that will be taken later in the year before the internship should be listed on the AAPI form.

Candidates must have passed their comprehensive exams (or equivalent) by the time of application.

We prefer that you have proposed your dissertation by the time internship begins.
