 All students entered with a Master's degree, and complete 99 credit hours during the doctoral program. Students who completed courses in their master's programs that substantially overlap with those required for the doctoral program may petition to substitute those master's level courses in; this does not decrease the total number of hours (n = 99) required for the doctoral program.

The Graduate School considers full-time enrollment to be 9 hours during Fall and Spring semesters, although the majority of students in the Counseling Psychology program enroll in 12 hours per semester if they wish to complete the program in four years. Full-time Graduate Assistantships waive tuition and fees (for both in-state and out-of-state students) and pay a monthly stipend that ranges from between $700 - $1000 (depending on source of stipend). Although the department cannot guarantee funding f or all students at the time of admission, all students who have desired a graduate assistantship in the last seven years have been provided with one.
