PsyD Admission Criteria
MiSPP seeks individuals who are clinically minded, possess a mature focus, display strong interpersonal skills, demonstrate critical thinking, and who have the goal of becoming a practicing clinician. Well-rounded individuals with proven academic success, professionalism, and an understanding of the field are encouraged to apply.
The Admissions Committee looks for candidate’s demonstration of exceptional ability in professional background or training. Applicant credentials are evaluated as a composite on the basis of all information submitted in the admission process.
To be considered, applicants must have:
- a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution with a minimum 2.5 GPA based on a 4.0 scale;
- a master’s degree in psychology, social work or counseling from an accredited institution with a minimum 3.25 GPA based on a 4.0 scale;
- 500 graduate-level practicum hours or equivalent field experience (Practicum Equivalency Form); and
- GRE general test scores (school code: 1413).
Applicants who do not meet the requirement of 500 graduate-level practicum hours/field experience may be considered for admission upon successful completion of clinical experience and submission of appropriate documentation.
Applications are reviewed after receipt of all required documents. Individuals who meet all admission criteria may be invited for an interview. Upon completion of the interview, the Admissions Committee makes a decision about acceptance to the program.
