Before you register, make sure you:

  • Meet prerequisites.
  • Attend an Information Meeting or talk with the Internship Coordinator, Dr. Lorna Catford.
  • Obtain an approved placement with a field supervisor.
  • Submit the Internship Agreement form with the signature of your on-site supervisor by the end of the Add/Drop period. The Intership Agreement form is available:
  • Provide your on-site Supervisor with our Internship Supervisor Letter.
  • Obtain a course Syllabus.
  • Inform the Internship Coordinator of your 1st and 2nd choice of Supervision Group Series.

    • If there are any questions about your Internship Agreement, Dr. Catford will contact you.
    • Dr. Catford will sign it and send it on for the Psychology Chair and Social Sciences Dean to sign.
    • We will take your fully signed Internship Agreement to Admissions & Records for you.
