General Admission Information

A masters degree in counseling or counseling psychology (or very closely related degree) is required to be considered for admission to the PsyD in Counseling Psychology program. Masters-level counselor education programs typically require the completion of 60 credit hours, however other related disciplines may require 48 credit hours, and in some cases as few as 30 credit hours. Students may be required to complete additional credit hours at the masters-level in order to be prepared for the Counseling Psychology PsyD curriculum. A resume, personal statement, writing sample, and interview are also required. The program has made the decision to waive GRE score requirement for Fall 2022 Admission. Please note: Admissions requirements are minimum standards but do not guarantee admission to the program. Admission is highly selective as we admit very small cohorts. 

Applications for admission are now being accepted. Please review all program and admissions requirements in the Graduate BulletinAPPLY HERE
