SOC-OFE Doctoral Students: Request an Affiliation Agreement Prior to Application

Request an Affiliation Agreement Prior to Application

Want to get ahead of the game?

If there is a site in your area that does not have an Affiliation Agreement in Meditrek, and you have reached out to the site with initial interest in securing a placement there, you can use this form to request that we attempt to establish an Affiliation Agreement. An early request may help increase your chances of placement at a given site and may speed up the process once you apply for Field Experience. 

See the Field Experience Manual for information about Field Site Affiliation Agreements.

1. Open the Affiliation Agreement Request Form

2. Research the site on the internet or through networking

3. Contact the site. In this contact, you will want to do the following:

  • Confirm that the site has counseling opportunities that match your program of study
  • Ask if they would potentially be interested in a field experience student in the future
  • If there are appropriate opportunities and the site indicates they might be interested in a field experience student, find out who the appropriate contact for such experience is.
  • Secure the following information:
    • Site Name, Address
    • Contact Name, Email Address, Phone Number
    • Any additional helpful information, which you can provide in the Affiliation Agreement Request Form
