The Graduate Handbook (PDF) provides updated information about requirements for the different graduate programs, the processes for moving through the program, opportunities, and the general rights and responsibilities of graduate students.

The purpose of this handbook is to describe the structure and operations of the Department of Psychology's graduate program. It is intended to give new students the information they need to help find their way in the department.

It is also intended to serve as the official statement of the rules and requirements of the program. As such, we recommend that you consult this guide throughout your years in the program. Download the latest version above.

Students are also responsible for reading the University's Graduate Handbook (PDF) and for checking the most recent University requirements at the Office of Graduate Education website.

The Clinical Handbook (PDF) complements, but does not replace, the Department of Psychology and graduate school handbooks. Students need to be familiar with the rules and requirements in all three handbooks as all are applicable to them.

The Council of University Directors of Clinical Training ( has adopted the following guidelines (PDF) for offers into doctoral clinical psychology programs.  If you are applying to a CUDCP program, you should expect the policies will apply.
