Application/Deadline Notes

The Specialist in School Psychology program reviews all completed applications at one time, they do not engage in rolling admission. A typical application review cycle includes the submission of the online application and all required documents, initial review by program for interview consideration, and then final decisions are made post-interviews. Interviews typically occur in March and final admission decisions made by April 15. The program does waitlist a selection of highly qualified applicants to draw from if space becomes available.
