General requirements

  • Applicants commonly wish to review our full disclosure data outlining what has happened with our recent cohorts of students as well as recent years of admissions. 
  • Like most clinical psychology programs we work on a mentor model where each student is assigned to work with a primary research mentor. These mentors can come from our core or affiliated faculty. 
  • Given that psychologists commonly work with individuals who are at-risk or vulnerable it is important to ensure that all of our doctoral students are appropriate for conducting such clinical work. As such, we run background checks shortly after admission while processing your MSU employment paperwork. 
  • In your personal statement we ask that you to tell us about you and your fit with the clinical psychology program, as fit plays a large role in successful applications.
