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
The Clinical Admissions Committee considers four main dimensions when evaluating applicants:
- Academic performance
- GRE scores
- Research record
- 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. In evaluating GRE scores, a minimum total aptitude
score of 1100 is ordinarily required. 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.

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.
