OAR 833-050-0021
Application for Registration as Intern


An applicant for registration must:


Meet all registration requirements in effect at the time the application is submitted;


Request registration on Board approved forms;


Submit a professional disclosure statement for board approval as part of his or her application;


Submit an application fee as specified in OAR 833-070-0011 (Fees);


Meet the educational requirements for licensure according to OAR 833-030-0011 (Educational Requirements for Licensure as a Professional Counselor) (LPC Intern) and/or 833-040-0011 (Educational Requirements for Licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist) (LMFT Intern);


Agree to complete supervised clinical experience hours to meet the total number of hours required for licensure; and


Abide by the Board’s laws and rules.


Applicants for professional counselor and marriage and family therapist must pay a fee for each license.


Internship status is a transitional step toward licensure and is not intended as a means to avoid licensure. Applicants approved for registration as an intern will have five years to complete the supervised direct client contact hours necessary for licensure or for examination. Failure to meet the experience requirements for licensure within five years will result in expiration of registration and closure of the application file. The intern may petition the Board to allow extension of registration for up to one year beyond the maximum five years if he/she can show good cause for such extension.


Former applicants who re-apply may transfer direct client contact hours accrued under a board-approved plan to their new plan.
