Student Admissions, Outcomes, and Other Data

The School Psychology Program at Baylor University is a member of the Council of Directors of School Psychology Programs (CDSPP) and is accredited, on contingency, by the American Psychological Association. To address the contingency, the program must provide outcome data for students in the program and program graduates in an updated self-study that is due by May 1, 2025. As a new program, the Baylor PhD in School Psychology anticipates the first program graduates in summer 2023. Upon review of the updated self-study, a site visit may be approved, and the program will be reviewed for full accreditation status.
