Clinical Psychology Program Graduate Programs

Currently, the clinical program accepts approximately 5-9 students for admission each year. Students are notified of admission in the Spring and begin their study in the following Fall semester. Go here for information about our typical number of applications and the types of students we admit.

The Clinical Admissions Committee considers four main dimensions when evaluating applicants:

  1. Academic performance
  2. GRE scores
  3. Research record
  4. Personal factors

In assessing academic performance, primary consideration is given to undergraduate grade point average. Applicants having graduate coursework are still judged principally by their undergraduate performance. The Committee also looks for evidence of promise in research. In assessing the "personal factor," the committee carefully reviews the required personal statement and letters of recommendation.

Data on our student body are provided here.

Note to Students Interested in
Our Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program.

Based on our academic judgment as to the best preparation for clinical psychologists, our program is committed to providing training that will prepare all students to work with client populations that are diverse with respect to a variety of characteristics (e.g., age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, disability status). Students completing clinical training in our program are required to provide services to all clients deemed appropriate by their supervisors. Students will be required to sign a statement agreeing to this policy upon admission to our program.
