Spring 2015 Priority Deadline: October 1, 2014
Classes Begin in January 2015
Summer 2015 Priority Deadline: February 1, 2015
Classes Begin in April 2015
Applicants to the evening format may possess a bachelor's degree in any field, and
there are no prerequisite courses prior to starting the program, assuming psychology
course work within the last seven years. Applicants without recent psychology course
work, however, will be required to complete foundational courses in preparation for
the core curriculum. Foundational courses are offered as part of the masters program.
Prior to or postmarked by the application deadline, all applicants must submit:
- Application for admission with the non-refundable processing fee.
- Official transcript in a registrar's sealed and stamped/signed envelope from the accredited institution that awarded your baccalaureate degree. Applicants to the evening format may possess a bachelor's degree in any field. Applicants pursuing their bachelors at the time of application should submit a current, in-progress transcript, and will be required to submit a final transcript showing the degree posted after completion of their undergraduate program.
- Scores from the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), taken within the last five years, or the Miller's Analogy Test (MAT), taken within the last two years. Please note only the general test is required for the GRE; the psychology subject test is not required. Testing centers send scores to the university 4-6 weeks after the test date, so applicants should take the test sufficiently in advance in order for the scores to be received by the deadline.
- *The GRE/MAT test may be waived for applicants of the evening format if the applicant
meets one of the following criteria:
- Seven or more years of post-bachelor's, qualified full-time work experience (need not be psychology related).
- A cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.7 or higher.
- A completed master's degree in any field.
- Two professional recommendations from individuals familiar with your academic or professional competencies. Recent college graduates should have at least one academic recommendation. Applicants who have been out of college more than three years should use professional recommendations.
- Recommendation Form.
- A two-to-five-page, typed, personal statement, describing your previous training and experience, current interests, future professional goals, and reasons for applying to the program.
- Applicants with seven or more years of qualified full-time work experience who wish to waive the GRE/MAT must submit an additional two-to five-page statement summarizing their work experience and describing how this experience has helped to prepare them for graduate study in psychology.
