Psy.D. Program in Clinical Psychology

Welcome to this brief introduction to the clinical PsyD program at the Graduate School of Applied & Professional Psychology (GSAPP). We hope you will examine us carefully. We have a distinguished full-time faculty whose work is on the cutting edge of their areas of expertise. Their teaching is very accessible to students as it is typically conducted in small seminars. Faculty also serve as clinical supervisors. In addition, we have a number of eminent professional psychologists who teach and supervise students in a variety of clinical and community settings. Our PsyD program stresses "hands on" experience from the first semester, emphasizing clinical work. However, as research and theory are the bases upon which practice develops, we teach both to develop well-rounded professionals. Our orientation is toward practice in the community and especially the underserved. I hope your interest will be sparked by the description of our nationally known program.

Interviews for Sept. 2015 admission to the program will occur on February 23, 2015. If you are invited, please plan to join us for the whole day. Thank you.

Sincerely,
James Walkup, Ph.D.
Professor and Chair

HAVE YOU MISSED REGISTRATION FOR THE GRE PSYCHOLOGY SUBJECT TEST?  If so, you may still be able to take the test by registering for “standby” status.  Please see below:

If you have missed the last date for registration, please follow the following steps to try to take the exam:

  1. Locate/Determine Your Test Center
    1. Go to the ETS website (www.ets.org)
    2. Under “tests and products,” click on “GRE Tests”
    3. Under “For Test Takers,” click on “GRE Subject Tests”
    4. Click on “Test Centers” (which is a PDF document).  This will bring up a list of all test centers in the country.  Find the one(s) where you would like to take the test, and check the grid to see if that test center offers the subject test in November
  1. Once you have determined your test center, call ETS (1-866-473-4373).
    1. Ask to speak to a representative
    2. Once you have gotten a person on the phone, ask them if they are sending psychology books to the testing center you’ve chosen.
      1. If the answer is yes, ask them how to register for “standby” status.  Please note – there is an additional fee for this – please check.

Note:  Standby status does NOT guarantee you entrance into the test.  It is recommended you arrive at the test center at least 30 minutes prior to registration.  If there are cancellations and/or “no-shows,” you will be admitted to the test on “standby”  - this will require additional fees.

PLEASE MAKE SURE TO ASK ETS EXACTLY HOW MUCH IN FEES, AND WHAT PAYMENT METHODS THEY ACCEPT, AS YOU WILL BE PAYING AT THE TEST CENTER.

Please also make sure to have ETS send us a copy of your scores.
