Note Regarding National Accreditation:
On July 13, 2010, Governor Jennifer Granholm signed Senate Bill 1315 (Jacobs) that provides in state law that institutions that offer doctoral degrees in psychology need to have their programs nationally accredited by August 31, 2015. This initiative, referred to as Public Act 121 of 2010, was supported by the Department of Community Health. Initially, the Michigan Board of Psychology promulgated a rule that required doctoral degree programs to have national accreditation by August 1, 2011; however, this law statutorily extends that deadline to August 31, 2015.
The PsyD program at MiSPP has submitted an application for accreditation and is currently under review by the American Psychological Association (APA)*.
