In applying to the Specialist in School Psychology, application materials must be submitted to the Psychology Department as well as to the Office of the Graduate School. An application packet is available from the Psychology Department or you can print the forms you need from this site.
Admission to the program cannot be final until you have submitted your applications (both graduate school and psychology), transcript(s), 3 letters of recommendation, Graduate Record Examination (GRE) General Test scores, and a personal statement. Applications must be received by January 15 to be considered for admission and assistantship. Although we will continue to accept applications until the cohort is filled, assistantship may not be available.
