Student Admissions, Outcomes, and Other Data

Admission to the Clinical Program is highly competitive and is based upon a combination of undergraduate (and any previous graduate) grades, GRE scores, undergraduate (and any previous graduate) psychology course work, letters of recommendation, relevant experience in psychological research, volunteer or paid experience with adults, children, adolescents, or clinical populations, and your statement of goals and interests. Following careful review of written applications, potential mentors invite candidates being considered for offers to campus for our Interview/Visitation Day in early-mid February. The Psy.D. Program Supplement Manual is available upon request.

Clinical students come from a variety of backgrounds and from many locations, mostly the United States but some from abroad. Almost all students have had an undergraduate major in psychology. On average, one incoming student a year has completed either a master's degree in psychology or some graduate work, though this is not required.

The Clinical Psychology Program at Baylor University is a member of the Council of University Directors of Clinical Psychology (CUDCP), the National Council of Schools and Programs of Professional Psychology (NCSPP), and is accredited by the American Psychological Association. All of the program graduates over the last five years have been successful in securing an APA-accredited internship.
