Student Financial Support
Currently two to four graduate assistantships (GA) are
offered each year and are typically reserved for first year
students. Courses are offered in the evening in order to
accommodate students who must work while pursuing the doctoral
degree. Since all Program students have a master's degree in
counseling or a closely related field, many are involved in the
provision or supervision of psychological care in relation to their
employment. Students working on their dissertation are eligible to
apply for up to $400.00 each to defray associated expenditures, and
the Program has a Survey Monkey account exclusively for use by
Time to Completion
The APA-accredited Doctoral Program requires four years of full-time study beyond the master’s degree (three academic and one year pre-doctoral internship). Members of the first cohort graduated in 2011.
Students may transfer up to nine (9) doctoral level credits into the program.
