- Every student must complete a minimum of seven core academic classes, meet with their faculty advisor, and receive a Field Training orientation prior to interning.
- Students begin searching for an internship in the fall before their intended internship and Field Training Contracts are due in April before that fall internship.

All Counseling and Psychology internships begin in the early fall (late August/early September) and end in the spring (May or June).
