Training Program

Thank you for visiting the UCC Training Program Website!

Historically, the TAMU-CC University Counseling Center (UCC) has offered practicum and internship placements for health science undergraduate students and counseling and psychology graduate students. 

For more information or to apply for the undergraduate Heath Science Practicum Program, please email    

Details regarding the Masters & Doctoral Level Clinical Training Program for counseling and psychology graduate students are listed below. 


Like many aspects of university life, the UCC Training Program has faced unexpected challenges in response to the COVID-19 epidemic. Throughout the year our UCC Training Team has worked tirelessly to adapt and have found way to continue providing an outstanding learning experience to the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 trainees whom we accepted into our program. However, maintaining our high training standards and ensuring our training cohorts can successfully complete academic program requirements has also come with several unexpected challenges.

To ensure we can continue to provide a high-quality training experience for our current training cohort, the UCC Training Program will NOT be accepting applications for the Spring 2021 semester.

Moving forward, positions for the 2021-2022 academic year will be available for both counseling & psychology graduate students. However, we cannot provide detailed information about future position availability, application processes/deadlines, or anticipated start dates at this time.

While The UCC Training Team regret missing out on being able to welcome new trainees in the upcoming semester, we truly believe this decision will help us honor our commitment to our current training cohort and allow us to invest in developing an even more robust program for the future.
