Clearinghouse

CAPIC Clearinghouse is the 30-day period following the CAPIC Online Match for submitting applications, ranking and matching in the CAPIC online match process.   

Below are the main points of the CAPIC Clearinghouse process.

For the 2017 CAPIC Match, Clearinghouse begins at 12 Noon on April 4, 2017 on the CAPIC website.

  • During Clearinghouse (and Post-Clearinghouse), complete student application materials are still submitted online.  Students’ previously created materials may be used for these submissions. 
    • However, online ranking is no longer used (i.e. the D&D Digital match vendor website is no longer used).
    • Offers and acceptances (aka matches) are conducted directly between internship programs and students.  
      • Students must inform their DCT of any proposed internship arrangements, to ensure it will meet their doctoral academic program’s requirements.
      • Students must also obtain school approval before accepting any internship offers.
  • New students must register and all students must submit applications online via the CAPIC website.  These steps allow the student’s DCT to be involved in the process.
    • Students should go to the Registration page for more info specific to it.
    • Info on creating and submitting applications is given on the Application Creation and Submission page.   
      • For the 30-day period of Clearinghouse, the application fee remains a requirement for newly applying students.
      • The application fee previously paid by students still covers their participation through Clearinghouse.  There is no additional fee to participate in Clearinghouse.   
  • The CAPIC website (www.capic.net) continues to provide info on doctoral internship programs still seeking interns. 
    • Internships are responsible for updating their online profiles to indicate any change in participation.  The CAPIC Office assists internships to make these updates to help ensure an accurate list of participating programs.  
      • Internship programs update their online profile (Q. 14b) to reflect their current needs.
      • Internship programs update their online profile (Q. 6a) to stop participating.
    • Particularly during and after Clearinghouse, it is important for internships to update their profile to ensure an accurate list of participating programs for students.
  • For students, those doctoral internships participating in Clearinghouse are listed as “participating in the current match process” once Clearinghouse begins on March 29th.  
    • Click here to go directly to the advanced search option page.  On the search form, click on the box for “participating in current match process” and click “Search.”
      • NOTE:  To search other parameters (e.g. region, type of internships available, etc.), be sure to also select “Agencies that match ALL of the above criteria.” at the bottom of the form, as appropriate.  
    • The search results page will provide links to the Brief Agency Profiles (BAP’s) of those internships found.
      • NOTE:  Internships full profiles may only be viewed after logging in.  The advanced search option also exists if you are logged in.
  • Clearinghouse begins with all internships which had not filled all of their positions at the end of the online match.
    • Internships then begin to settle on their final number of interns for the upcoming year and cease to seek additional interns.
    • It is important for students that internships update their profiles to accurately reflect if they are still participating and seeking interns.  
  • Students should submit a normal, complete set of application materials via the CAPIC website to internships where the student is interested in serving an internship.
  • Internship programs then contact students directly to arrange interviews and extend doctoral internship offers directly to students, as appropriate.
    • Students may also follow-up directly with internships.
    • Students must inform their DCT of any proposed internship arrangements, to ensure it will meet their doctoral academic program’s requirements.
      • Students must also obtain school approval before accepting any internship offers.
    • Once a Student and Internship program form an internship agreement, the internship should inform CAPIC of the internship match. 
      • Please include the type of doctoral internship (e.g. Full-Time, Half-Time 1-Year, Half-Time 2-Year).
    • Students and Internship programs should also formalize their internship agreement in writing.
      • Do not send CAPIC a copy. CAPIC does not maintain this documentation, although academic programs may want it.
