We offer internship and practicum training programs to eligible candidates. 

Our APA accredited internship program is a 12-month, 2,000-hour program. Please visit our listing in the APPIC Online Directory for further information, including number of positions, minimum requirements for applicants, selection procedures, and benefits. The APPIC Web site address is:, and our APPIC Member number is 1559.  Our NMS Match Program Code Number is 155911. We draw from a diverse pool of candidates locally and across the country and Canada (CPA). 

Our practicum trainees are selected from both Counseling and Clinical Psychology and Master level programs.   We have been accredited by the Office of Program Consultation and Accreditation (OPCA) of the American Psychological Association (APA) since 1988.

We embrace a practitioner-scholar model so that both interns and practicum students benefit from professional interaction, supervision, mentoring, and modeling from center staff. While clients' presenting issues may range from developmental concerns to more severe psychological problems, the majority of center counseling is brief due to the nature of university life. An up-dated list of referral resources is available for clients needing more intensive treatment modalities.
