Students are admitted directly to the doctoral program. A combination of
criteria are used in evaluating candidates for admission to graduate
study in psychology.
***Application process update: Due to the coronavirus, the Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences is waiving the GRE requirement for our graduate program. If you wish to apply without a GRE score, please enter a future GRE exam date into the application. It need not be a legitimate exam date. Entering a future exam date causes the system to finish your application and send it on to our review committee where it will receive full consideration.
If you are a Clinical Science Concentration applicant, please note: the Psychology Subject GRE is not required and will not be used for evaluation purposes during the admission process. However, it is helpful for fulfilling Clinical Science program requirements, and students who enroll in our program may choose to take the test any time before the end of their first year.***
Foreign students whose language of education is not English must also
arrange to have original TOEFL scores submitted; a minimum score of 100
on the IBT (600 on the paper-based test, or an equivalent IELTS score
of 7.0) is required for admission. Foreign students who hold a
university degree from an institution in an English-speaking country are
not required to submit TOEFL scores. Foreign students whose native
language in not English and who are awarded a teaching assistantship must
successfully complete the University's ITA program.
Those who meet these requirements are not guaranteed admission, nor
are those who fail to meet the requirements necessarily precluded from
admission, if they offer other appropriate strengths. Undergraduate
research experience is looked on very favorably. An undergraduate degree
in psychology is not required for admission, but students may be
required to make up deficiencies in their background by enrolling in
