Applicants for the Clinical Psychology Program are screened in two stages. First, the credentials submitted by all applicants by the deadline are reviewed. A group of finalists is selected and invited to be interviewed by Psychology Department faculty. Students for the program are selected from among these finalists, based on the totality of their credentials and their interview performance.
All information must be submitted to the Graduate School Admissions Office and received by January 15. Students are admitted for fall matriculation only. Program faculty review all written material during the last half of February. Finalists are generally contacted in early March to schedule interviews. Students selected for the program are notified of their status as soon as admissions decisions are made. If a selected student declines or withdraws from consideration, then another finalist may be selected from the waiting list.

To help us understand how you meet the above goals, on a separate sheet of paper please:
Please answer the following questions on separate pages, typed, double-spaced. Send your answers, along with a résumé and other required application materials, to the Graduate School Admissions Office.
*NOTE: These narrative summaries substitute for the "goals statement". You do not need to complete the "Goals Statement" section to apply to the Clinical Psychology Program.
On a separate sheet, attach a chronological summary of your educational and work experiences. Please include brief explanations of any gaps.
The Clinical Psychology doctoral program, and the work of clinical psychologists, requires a high degree of professional and scholarly writing skills. To help us in evaluating this area, each applicant is asked to submit a copy (non-returnable) of a paper in psychology or a related field. This can be a class paper, a published article, or other written scholarly papers, rather than case reports. If you choose to submit a case report, please make sure all information that might identify the individual you discuss is deleted.
As a self-test, applicants may wish to ask themselves the following questions. These are similar to the questions the reviewers will consider in evaluating each application.
