Admission Requirements

Thank you for your interest in USF's School Psychology Program! 

If you are interested in applying to both the School Psychology Ph.D. and Ed.S. programs, you do not need to submit two separate USF admissions applications. Please indicate your interest in applying for both programs in your statement of professional goals. The statement of goals should be approximately 2-3 pages, single-spaced, and indicate why you are interested in school psychology, why USF in particular, your research/practice interests, and a paragraph to describe the role of a school psychologist as a system change agent from a social justice lens. If you are selected for an interview, you will have the opportunity to discuss with faculty members which program would be most beneficial for you. Please note, the School Psychology Ph.D. and Ed.S programs do NOT require (1) a Master’s degree or (2) GRE scores for admission. We DO require a personal statement aligned to our training model, three letters of recommendation, and a resume.


To be admitted to the program, you must meet the university's graduate admissions requirements, as well as the specific program requirements. Full funding is available to Ed.S. applicants via Project TIERS!
