Admission to the program is based on a review of the candidate's background in having completed at least a master's degree in counseling, psychotherapy, clinical psychology, clinical social work, psychiatry, psychiatric nursing, or some equally relevant clinical field. At times, applicants with other backgrounds who are pursuing a career in a human service profession are admitted and are encouraged to apply.

Application for admission requires the appropriate fee — $50 by July 31 or $75 after that date — three letters of recommendation, and an interview with a faculty member. The application process must be complete by the first weekend of training in September.
