Admission Requirements

(For All Masters Program in Psychology)

All students must meet the minimum requirements of the College.

Psychology Department Graduate Program Admission Policy:  Admission to the M.S. in Counseling Program (both Mental Health and School Counseling concentrations) and M.A. in Industrial and Organizational Psychology Program is competitive and selective. Admission to the College of Graduate Studies requires a minimum GRE verbal score of 350, a minimum GRE quantitative score of 350 (we expect comparable scores for the new version of the GRE), and a minimum undergraduate GPA of 2.5. Meeting minimum admission standards, however, does not ensure that an applicant will be offered admission into a graduate program in psychology. Applicants who are admitted typically have a GPA of 3.0 or above and/or GRE scores that exceed the minimum scores required for admission to the College of Graduate Studies. A variety of factors are taken into account in admissions including undergraduate GPA, GRE scores, letters of recommendation, a personal statement, and number of available openings in the program of interest.

All completed applications will be reviewed. Priority admission will be given to applicants whose files are completed and who meet admission requirements prior to March 1st for fall admission. For IO Psychology admission for Spring Semester this date is November 1st. Later applications will be considered based upon openings.
