What happens after I apply to the School Psychology PsyD program?
The PsyD program utilizes a rolling admissions policy, so applications will be considered
throughout the year as they are received. Students will be accepted into the program
until the desired class size is achieved, therefore it is recommended for candidates
to submit applications early. Classes begin in the fall term.
The Admissions Committee screens applications, invites some applicants for an interview
and to submit a writing sample, evaluates the applicants and selects the new students.
As an applicant to PCOM's Doctor of Psychology in School Psychology program, you are
responsible for ensuring that all admissions materials are completed accurately and
submitted in a timely manner.
Due to COVID-19, we will conduct online interviews with applicants for all PCOM locations.
Following completion of the admissions process, each applicant is notified of the
Admissions Committee's decision in writing, including any conditions that must be
satisfied prior to or following enrollment.
Background check requirement
In effort to foster the safety and well-being of the entire campus community, as well
as to ensure that students accepted to PCOM will be permitted to perform clerkships/internships
required to successfully complete their degree requirements, PCOM requires all first
year students to complete a criminal background check prior to matriculation. All
students must have their criminal background checks processed through a PCOM vendor
of choice. The Admissions Office will send notification of the process after confirmation
of enrollment and must have this information on file prior to orientation; students
will not be allowed to start classes without this information.
Prior to enrollment, all candidates are required to complete PCOM's Technical Standards for Admission and Matriculation (PDF).
