The APPIC Board works hard to ensure that the cost of the application process for the internship is kept at the lowest possibly price. The increase for 2018 includes a 4% increase. Applicants are encouraged to use the APPIC Directory on Line, your graduate program Director of Training and colleagues to determine where you want to apply and what programs are a good fit for you. The match rate indicates that the average number of applications submitted per student is between 13 and 14. There are diminishing returns for going much above that amount. The AAPI is charged per application and the rate increases substantially after 15 applications. The application for psychology internships is still a reasonable price compared to the other health professions.
