Admission to the master's program is competitive, and successful applicants usually meet the following criteria:
- A bachelor's degree in psychology; if a student does not have an undergraduate psychology major, 15-21 hours of undergraduate coursework as prescribed by the graduate coordinator may be substituted with the approval of the Graduate Admissions Committee.
- An undergraduate grade point average (GPA) of 3.00 or above; students with otherwise strong credentials who do not meet the 3.00 GPA requirement may, at the discretion of the Graduate Admissions Committee, be admitted to the program with provisional status.
- Verbal + Quantitative combined GRE scores of 1000 are preferred, but applicants with lower scores whose applications are otherwise strong will be considered.
- Successful international students typically have scores of 600 or more on the paper-based TOEFL test.
