The policy of the Clinical and Psychology & Law Doctoral Programs is to consider students who show considerable promise of succeeding in the respective program. Each applicant's entire application package will be thoroughly examined (including GPA, General GRE scores, letters of recommendation, personal statement, research --and clinical experiences for the Clinical Program). In addition, Psychology GRE scores are required for the Clinical Program and are recommended but not required for the Psychology & Law Program. These programs are highly competitive and accept approximately 10 students each year (divided between the Clinical and Psychology & Law Programs).
The program is open to full-time students only. Students cannot attend on a part-time basis.
Admission is for the fall semester only. Applications must be received by the Graduate Center Admissions Office by December 1st.
In addition, application requirements (transcripts, recommendation letters, GRE scores) must be submitted to the Graduate Center Office of Admissions - code 2113 - NOT to John Jay College.
