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 doctoral students.

Time to degree 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 eighteen (18) doctoral level credits into the program.
