Applying for Graduate Study

The admissions process is highly competitive. Prospective students are strongly encouraged to review the prospective student information webpage and to familiarize themselves with our faculty. We welcome applications from individuals whose academic interests match our expertise.

  • Applications for Fall 2024 admissions are CLOSED.
  • Applications for Fall 2025 admissions will open on Tuesday, September 3, 2024.

We no longer require GRE General test scores. In addition, the Community, Cultural, and Developmental (CCD) program and Cognition, Neuroscience, and Social (CNS) program do not require GRE Subject test scores. The GRE Subject test is optional for the Clinical program (please see details on the Clinical program page).

The application process is divided into three stages. The stages can be completed concurrently.

For admission consideration, all three stages must be completed by the application deadline.
