If you choose to apply to the Clinical graduate program as well as an Experimental program area, it is necessary that you apply to both the Clinical and the Experimental programs through the Graduate School. This will require two separate fees as well. Only one fee is required if you apply to more than one area within the Experimental program.
If you choose to apply to more than one area within the Experimental degree program, you must include this information on your online application by checking all appropriate areas (i.e. social, cognition, developmental, etc.).
The application procedure is a time-consuming process and should be initiated as early as possible. Before any application will be reviewed, the required fee and all materials must be received.
