For more information on licensing requirements, including contact information for every state and territory licensing board, please see the Association of State Boards of Professional Psychology (ASBPP) webpage [link]. All states require the completion of supervised predoctoral practicum hours and a predoctoral internship. These aspects are also required for the doctoral degree in clinical psychology at the University of Delaware. In addition to education requirements for the doctoral degree, however, many jurisdictions require post-doctoral professional experience. These requirements are beyond the curricular requirements described below.
Note that in some jurisdictions, in addition to being licensed as psychologist, an individual can obtain prescribing privileges. The University of Delaware’s program does NOT fulfill requirements for licensure as prescribing psychologists in those states and jurisdictions that allow for it. Typically, additional coursework in pharmacology is needed in addition to the doctoral degree. Note that the District of Columbia has their own regulations aside from the states listed here. The University of Delaware’s Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program meets D.C.’s requirements (see https://dchealth.dc.gov/). Please see the ASBPP website for information about other U.S. territories and Canadian provinces.
Below, an asterisk (*) indicates that earning a doctoral degree from a program accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) satisfies educational requirements for licensure. The University of Delaware is currently and has been continuously accredited by APA since 1975. We have also been continuously accredited by PCSAS since 2011.

Although a doctoral degree from an accredited program like Delaware is needed, additional coursework or experience, potentially beyond what is offered at Delaware (at least 10 contact hours) in the following areas are also required: Suicide Risk Assessment and Intervention, Human Sexuality, Child Abuse Assessment and Reporting, Detection and Treatment of Alcohol and Other Chemical Substance Dependence, Spousal or Partner Abuse, Aging and Long-Term Care
As an APA and PCSAS accredited program, the University of Delaware program meets Michigan’s core educational requirements. However, Michigan requires additional pre-licensure training in identifying victims of human trafficking that the program at the University of Delaware does not provide. Students wishing to become licensed in Michigan are advised to work with the program to meet this additional training requirement. While we do not offer this content per se, there are electives in the community that may be available to fulfill this requirement.
NJ requires 6 doctoral credit hours in each of the following domains: 1) Personality Theory and Human Development Theory; 2) Learning Theory and/or Physiological Psychology; 3) Psychological Measurement and Psychological Assessment; 4) Psychopathology; 5) Psychological therapy/counseling or Industrial/Organizational Psychology; and 6) Research and Statistical Design. Graduates of UD’s program may need hours of coursework in personality/human development, and psychopathology.
New York’s requires at least three graduate semester hours in psychometrics and history and systems. Our program is aligned with the most up-to-date standards of APA and PCSAS accreditation which do not require coverage of these areas in separate three credit courses. New York does not specify that they accept APA or PCSAS accreditation without additional course review. Therefore, students intending to apply for licensure in New York are advised to work closely with our program coordinator to choose electives that may meet New York’s requirements.
