Qualities Sought & General Admissions Info

  Students are admitted to graduate study based on an assessment of the likelihood that they will be able to attain the doctorate and make a contribution to the discipline. We seek to attract a geographically and culturally diverse student body interested in Scientist-Practitioner training. The School Psychology Admissions Committee is particularly interested in receiving applications from qualified minority students and students from underrepresented groups. We do not have automatic cut-off scores, but rather look for an overall record that suggests a good fit with the training program and a likelihood of success. Applicants are judged on the basis of prior academic record, GRE scores, letters of recommendation, evidence of creative scholarship, a self-statement of goals and career objectives, and a resume/vita.
