Graduate Internship Program

The Undergraduate Advising Center (UAC) provides a well-supervised internship experience for graduate students that prepares them to work in a college counseling environment. Interns will be trained to effectively counsel a diverse population of students regarding academic issues and concerns. Interns are assigned a cohort of students and will follow them throughout the year.

The UAC provides the following programs and services:

  • Advising students regarding General Education and graduation requirements
  • Assisting students in improving study skills (time management, test-taking, note-taking, etc.)
  • Helping undeclared and change of major students explore various majors and career options
  • Counseling probation students regarding their academic progress and success
  • Orienting freshmen and transfer students to the University

Interns at the Undergraduate Advising Center will dedicate 12 - 20 hours per week (depending on the cohort and intern’s needs). Internship hours are generally broken down per week as follows:

Breakdown of Internship Hours
Individual Supervision
1 hour
Intern Training
1 hour
Staff Meeting
1 hour
Working with Cohort Students
3 - 5 hours
General Advising
Remainder of hours

 

The student contact component of the internship includes individual appointments, workshops/group work, drop-in counseling, and projects/special assignments.

 

We will screen applicants on a rolling basis starting in March until we fill all positions. Interested students should submit a resume and cover letter to:
