Application Process

Application Due Date

All application materials are due by January 1, 2019 for Fall 2019 admission to the Program. We admit students only for the fall semester. In a typical year, we select 20-25 applicants for interviews and admit 8-10 students to the Ph.D. and Ed.S. programs together.

How Applications Are Evaluated

The faculty in the School Psychology program review all applications. The primary assumption underlying admission to either the Ed.S .or the Ph.D. program is that every student who is accepted is capable of successfully completing his or her respective program and performing competently in the field as a school psychologist. For this reason, the selection and admissions procedure is quite rigorous.

Applicants are selected based on their potential to benefit from the training program and their potential to contribute both to the program and the field of School Psychology. Importantly, we seek students whose professional interests and career goals are consistent with the philosophy and mission of our program.

Within the admissions process, a culturally diverse student body is actively recruited. The admissions process is highly selective but flexible. All pertinent data submitted for consideration will be evaluated as an entire package.

The School Psychology faculty will review all applications in January 2019. Following the review of all applications, selected applicants will be invited for interviews, which usually take place in late January and early February. You will be contacted by phone in January 2019 if you are selected for an interview.
