IV. GENERAL DEPARTMENTAL ACADEMIC DEGREE REQUIREMENTS
THE PsyD PROGRAM PROPOSAL
Courses may be waived by the GSAPP course instructor if she or he has satisfied that course by possessing sufficient knowledge, skill, and experience relative to the particular course's content. Any course waived must have a grade of "B" or better.
a. Currently the only waiver exam offered is Statistics and Cognitive Assessment offered in the School Psychology program. Students who are interested in taking these exams should directly contract the course instructor.
b. For any other course, the instructor may sign the pink course waiver form or require any combination of the following tasks before signing the waiver:
- an oral test of course content;
- a simulation problem or exercises relative to course content;
- a written paper as a response to an issue, question, or task relative to the course
- attendance in selected course classes/meetings, which cover areas of content that were not included in the student’s prior courses/experiences;
- a written waiver exam. Contact the Student Services Coordinator to arrange a date to take the exam.
c. A practicum waiver (green sheet in the Advanced Status Program Proposal Form) requires specific information on the agency, population served, supervision, and number of supervised hours. To waive some of the required practicum hours, this form must be signed by the Coordinator of Practicum Training.
