Student Admissions, Outcomes, and Other Data

We are providing the following information to to fully disclose to prospective students, current students, and the public information about our program processes and outcomes, including time to completion, program costs, internships, attrition, and licensure.

As a member program of the Council of University Directors of Clinical Psychology (CUDCP), the CHPBM program has a history of providing such comparative information. All member programs "support the provision of fuller disclosure about operations and outcomes of our educational endeavors".

We recognize that these numbers may have little meaning. These numbers provide some information about our current applicants, but do not tell the whole story. Prospective applicants are discouraged from inferring from these data how likely they are to be admitted to the program or how quickly they will complete requirements. There are many factors that cannot be easily captured by these data. For example, our program does not screen applicants merely on GRE scores. High GRE scores will not automatically results in admission, rather, we review all aspects of the applicant's record to determine who will likely be the best fit for our program. In our review process we consider the following:

  • research experiences
  • clinical experiences
  • quality of undergraduate training
  • letters of recommendation
  • GRE/GPA
  • applicant's interest and fit with our program

What is important for an applicant is that this program truly engage in "truth in advertising" about what it does. We provide much information about our program so that applicants may find an appropriate fit with us or with another training program elsewhere.

The maximum amount of credit for appropriate prior graduate work is 30 semester hours, providing the work was accomplished in a department offering a doctoral degree in psychology. An entering student may request to waive a combination of program (no more than 12 hours) and departmental course requirements up to this limit. This may reduce the length of time for completion of the program, but this varies by individual and cannot be assured. The Clinical Health Psychology program is currently inactive and will no longer accept students.
