Students who have completed graduate coursework at another institution may petition for transfer of courses in the PsyD in Clinical Psychology degree program up to a maximum of 30 credit hours (10 courses). The expected implications for time to completion are variable based on number of courses transferred and each student's particular situation.

Program Costs

Program costs are charged per credit hour. Not all fees are applied each semester which will result in some fluctuation in cost. The number of credits indicated is based on full time status. Each student’s cost structure may vary depending on the number of credits taken per semester.

Description 2017-2018 1st Year Cohort Cost
Tuition for full-time students (in-state) $33,698
Tuition for full-time students (out-of-state) $33,698
Tuition per credit hour for part-time students $1,162
University/institution fees or costs $1,155
Additional estimated fees or costs to students (e.g. books, travel, etc.) $2,000

Internship Placement

Although all students are expected to seek APA accredited internships, some students choose to do other internships (APPIC, CAPIC) based on their particular needs or interests.

Licensure

Consistent with the Commission on Accreditation’s implementing regulations, licensure rates are calculated using the number of students with known licensure over the total number of graduates. All students whose licensure status is unknown are counted as "unlicensed." Therefore the actual licensure rate of graduates may be higher than the number from the APA/COA formula.

Outcome 2007 - 2017
Total number of program graduates (doctoral degrees conferred on transcript) between 2 and 10 years ago 220
The number of these graduates (between 2 and 10 years ago) who became licensed psychologists in the past 10 years 176
Licensure percentage 80%
