Prior to enrolling in a Site-based Internship (COUN 5389) section, prospective interns are required to apply to be admitted into Internship. Applications are tailored to the courses offered each semester, and students rank order preferences of each section. Along with this choice, students are also to provide documentation of their clinical evaluations from previous classes, amount of degree completion through a degree audit, and a personal statement regarding their clinical skill development.
Students are not able to register for this course without first being assigned to a section by the Practicum/Internship Coordinator (Dr. Tracy Calley), and permitted into the course by the Program Administrative Assistant. Students are notified when these steps have been completed and when they are able to register for their assigned course section.

⇒ Start searching for internship sites as early in the previous semester as possible. All site supervisors must be approved prior to the start of the upcoming internship semester. Students cannot start an Internship semester without a secured site and completed Internship agreement.
The Guidelines for Internship document is below, and contains a letter of introduction from the Internship Coordinator, a Memorandum of Agreement, Proposed Internship Activity Plan, and Supervisor Disclosure Statement outline. The Guidelines for Internship document should be reviewed by you and also shared with your Site supervisor before you complete the required Internship paperwork.
Site Supervisor Resources
This capstone experience helps students to bring together academic understanding of counseling and the practice of counseling, while under supervision. Clinicians practicing in community and school settings have volunteered their time to serve as site-based supervisors for graduate-level interns. Resources are provided on this page for site-based supervisors.
