All second-year students and above are considered post-graduates. First-year students who are not interning, and are taking a full course load of courses while receiving both group and individual supervision are also considered post-graduates.

This experience allows students to join our program while they finish up their last year of their master’s program. Pre-graduates are able to complete their necessary internship requirements for their masters at our community clinic while also enrolled in our two-year MFT Training Program.

 
At DFI, our pre-graduates have the flexibility to determine their weekly schedule of client sessions, attend weekly experiential therapy training classes, receive both individual and group supervision, and upon graduation from our MFT Training Program, will hold a specialized certificate in Marriage and Family Therapy! Tuition for Pre-grads is the same as Post Grads and there currently no internship scholarship opportunities for Pre-grads.
