The Psychology Graduate Admissions Committee votes on each application with the majority opinion prevailing. In cases of a tie, the tie breaking vote is cast by the Dean of the Prothro-Yeager College of Humanities and Social Sciences. Applications for fall admission will be evaluated May 1st. Should positions remain open after the May 1st evaluation, a second group of applications will be evaluated July 1st. Applications for spring admission will be evaluated November 1st. Ordinarily, no applications will be processed unless they are complete. Although applications received or completed after these deadlines will be considered, no guarantee can be made that processing will be finished in time for registration. Furthermore, early applicants will receive first consideration for admission as well as for financial aid.
Unless special arrangements have been made with the department chair, no student will be allowed to enroll in any graduate psychology course unless he or she has applied for admission and has been accepted into the program. Under no circumstances may students continue in graduate psychology classes beyond the first semester of enrollment without applying to and being accepted into the program.
