The PSYCAS application portal is now available. The final application deadline is January 10, 2024.
Please note that that GRE is no longer required for admission. Please do not submit your GRE scores.
Admissions decisions are based primarily on academic credentials (e.g., GPA), letters of recommendation, and the perceived "fit" between a student's interests, interests of the program, and the interests of the core faculty member(s). Our selection process was developed as a way of establishing a close working relationship between faculty and students early in the program. This selection process also represents a commitment by the faculty to the progress and success of each student we accept. You will be notified via email regarding the final admissions decisions. While we wish we could provide individual feedback about the status of each application, we are unable to due to the large volume of applications. To check the status of your application documents, please log in to your PSYCAS account.
