Admission Requirements

  • A baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited US institution or a comparable degree from an international institution.
  • An academic record that demonstrates ability to fulfill the academic demands of the program. Successful applicants typically have a grade point average of 3.25 or higher on a 4.0 scale for undergraduate coursework.
  • A GRE general test score is required as part of the application for our Psy.D. program. However, GPA and GRE scores are only one component of our application criteria. Each applicant is reviewed holistically, taking factors such as personal and professional experience into consideration. Applicants are encouraged to contact the Office of Admissions to discuss their unique qualifications. The GRE must have been taken within 5 years of your intended start term.
  • Practicum or work experience in psychology or a related field is highly desirable and is considered in the evaluation of applicants.
  • The equivalent of 18 semester credit hours in psychology with grades of "C" or better, including the following prerequisite courses: general or introductory psychology, abnormal psychology, and research methods or statistics. Equivalent coursework in other social sciences may also be considered. Students may be admitted prior to completing these prerequisites, but all students must complete these courses by the end of their first semester of enrollment at the Adler University.
  • Approved applicants will be invited to complete an interview as the final step in the application process. Please submit all application materials to the Office of Admissions prior to the application deadline.
