GRE scores from exam taken within the past five years (NOTE: Applicants should plan to take the GRE at least two months before the deadline.)
The department considers all applications, considers them as a whole, and there are no rigid minimum scores required. However, we typically prefer applicants with an undergraduate GPA > 3.00, a GPA in psychology course work > 3.25, and GRE scores > the 50th percentile. Experience, letters of recommendation, publications, and (in some programs) an interview, can help compensate for deficiencies in numeric qualifications. No specific set of qualifications guarantees admission.
For the PhD with a concentration in industrial/organizational psychology, at least 15 credits in psychology, including a statistics course and a laboratory course in psychology. A tests and measurements course is recommended
New students are admitted for fall semester only. All applicants are strongly advised to submit applications and all supporting documents by the programs' posted deadline dates. Deadlines vary by concentration. Each graduate concentration expects to make initial admission decisions by the dates posted. However, decisions will continue through April 30 as applicants are selected from the waitlist and the programs reach capacity.
Initial decisions typically made by February 1.
