APA Internship - How to Apply

As a member of APPIC we will be using the 2015-2016 APPIC Application for Psychology Internship (AAPI) Form and will be participating in the APPIC matching program. The AAPI  Form is available  at APPI Online.  The University of Maine Counseling Center Internship Program Code is 135611.

To participate in the APPIC matching program, you must be registered. If you have not already done so, you must obtain an Applicant Agreement Package from NMS and register for the matching program in order to be eligible to be matched to our program. You may request an Application Package from NMS through the matching program website at

Applications should include:

  • A completed 2015-2016 AAPI Form
  • A current vita
  • Official graduate transcripts.
  • Three letters of recommendation from people familiar with your academic and applied performance.

All this information is submitted  through APPI Online. Upon receipt of your completed application, our Selection Committee will review your material. From this initial review, a selected pool of applicants will be invited for an interview either by Skype or phone.   While we would prefer to meet candidates in person, we have decided the cost required of applicants to make such trips is exorbitant and not everyone can afford that.  Interviews are conducted during the first two weeks of January.   If invited to interview you will be notified not later than December 15.   If you do want to visit the Counseling Center you are welcome to, but not until after our decision-making process is completed.  Please do let me know if you do want to visit.   If you have questions,  feel free to contact me about it via e-mail or by phone.

The deadline for receipt of completed applications is November 3, 2014.  Any clarifying information about the internship may also be obtained by contacting:
