Application Process

Counseling Center

Requirements and Expectations:

Candidates are expected to have basic interviewing and case conceptualization skills. Priority is given to those with more extensive training or life experience that is relevant to working with a university student population. With our small staff, we are looking for students who can interpersonally connect with both their clients and colleagues.

Practicum students are required to be on site through the academic year. Our office is open 8:00 AM through 4:45 PM, Monday through Friday. Depending on the practicum student’s schedule, you may be on site for full or half days in order to reach the 20 hour per week minimum requirement. Practicum students will gradually build an individual therapy caseload and will be expected to maintain a caseload of approximately 10 clients throughout the year, in addition to participating in above-noted group, outreach, and consultation activities.

Application process:

We welcome applications from both master’s and doctoral level students in counseling, marriage and family therapy and psychology programs. Prospective applicants should submit a cover letter, resume, and three references to our Training Coordinator by February 5th, via email or at the address below:
