Student Admissions, Outcomes, and Other Data

Applicant Data and accepted admission Since 2007


Time To Completion


We left off the columns for specific years blank as some years we had a single graduate so providing that information would have been a violation of FERPA laws.

Students admitted with prior graduate coursework in psychology will need to negotiate credits by providing evidence that the coursework essentially fulfilled our requirements. This negotiation is ad hoc with the clinical training faculty, who have the final say.



The tuition costs represent what students would have to be pay if they were admitted without funding. This never happens, however. We do not admit a student unless we can commit to full funding (including tuition and stipend) for five academic years, including summer stipend for four years. Support comes from university fellowships and teaching assistantships, national research fellowships, and faculty grants. Continuation of support from year to year requires that a student be in good academic standing.

Scientific Research

Our faculty are recruited to be international leaders in their research areas. (Chances are, if you are considering applying to our graduate program, you know this.) Furthermore, we also recruit faculty who will be excellent and enthusiastic mentors to students. We encourage prospective graduate students who have been invited for interviews to closely question our current graduate students about their training. (Unfortunately, we cannot generally meet with prospective students before they have been invited for interviews.) We are confident that we provide excellent research training.

The predominant goal of the clinical program is to train graduate students who will produce important scientific research relevant to clinical psychology, broadly construed. To be important, research must be rigorous, thoughtful, and informed by current research. Thus, our training is focused on these goals. Contents-focused courses, including psychopathology and psychotherapy, focus on the most important and current research paradigms. (We should note that we do not prefer research paradigms just because they are current, and some very important paradigms that are taught are relatively old.) Methods-focused courses, especially statistics, teach students the necessary tools to plan studies and analyze their results.

Our goal for graduate students Is that they will ultimately have jobs emphasizing research and teaching, and to a large extent we succeed. But we are also proud of our graduates who have predominately clinical jobs. Providing clinical services in a rigorous, empirically supported, and effective manner is very important. 

In the table below we have listed the current positions of all our program graduates starting in 2000, omitting names for the sake of privacy.
