Personal and Organization Sponsorship

The financial aid team regularly collaborates with church or organization partnerships arranged by students where a tuition is partially covered by their church or sponsoring organization. Where have you invested in relationships with your time and skills to further the community around you in a way that may lead to a partnership?

Graduate Assistant Positions

The Counseling Division is in need of additional support in the clinical, program development, and organizational aspects of the MA in Counseling programs. These roles vary from solely grading focused positions to larger roles assisting professors. In addition, some positions may be available that include up to 10 hours a week in specific areas of the Counseling Division, which will align well with Clinical, Instruction, Leadership, Research, and Supervision roles within the PhD Program.
