Other requirements

General requirements

  • 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.
  • Applicants to the MA in psychology must have 15 credits in psychology including a general/introductory course, a course in statistics, and a laboratory course in psychology.
