How long is the program?
The Ph.D. program requires a minimum of four full-time pre-internship years. In addition, students must complete a one-year internship.  While the Ph.D. degree can be completed within five years; typically, six to seven years is the average length of study. Students pay tuition for the first four years. Students are eligible to apply for internship after passage of a Preliminary Qualifying Comprehensive Exam and approval of a dissertation proposal. Once the dissertation proposal is approved, up to three additional years are allowed for the completion of all requirements for the Ph.D. degree (i.e., completion of the dissertation and its defense, and the internship year). 

When should I apply?
We begin accepting applications in September. All materials must be postmarked no later than December 31. The interview process begins in March. 

Do I have to take the Advanced Psychology GRE for the application?
The Advanced Psychology GRE is only required for those students who are not undergraduate Psychology majors or have a Masters degree in a non-Psychology discipline.
