Program Requirements

Psychology program application requirements: 

  • GRE Scores NOT accepted/considered for Fall 2021 admissions (see below)
  • GPA (Self-reported, see Graduate School Admission Requirements below)
  • Unofficial Transcript from undergraduate and graduate institutions (if applicable) 
  • CV
  • Personal Statement (see FAQs for requirements)
  • Writing Sample (not required, but suggested)
  • Three letters of recommendation

 

Due to limited access to testing sites and limited access to take the GRE during the COVID-19 pandemic, our program has eliminated the GRE General Test for the Fall 2021 admission cycle. We will NOT accept or consider GRE scores for applications submitted this fall 2020. Applicants should not submit GRE scores through ETS nor report their scores in the application portal or on their CVs or personal statements
