Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology

Currently accepting applications for Fall 2014.

Students with a bachelor's degree in psychology or a related major and students with a master's degree in psychology or a related major may apply. Students will need to demonstrate their abilities to succeed in a doctoral level program through GPA, GRE scores, research experience and experience in the field. Students will also need to have well developed writing skills. In addition, students need to demonstrate potential as clinicians by their abilities to engage with and develop interpersonal relationships. The need to target and enroll students from diverse backgrounds will be a priority in recruiting.

Addressing diversity has been a priority at CLU and will be a priority in the Psy.D. program as well.

The Priority deadline for the following fall semester is January 15. Applications received after the January 15 deadline will be considered if there is still space available in the cohort.
