We require the general GRE, but not the subject test. The institution code for Kent State University is 1367, and the departmental codes are 2016 for Clinical, and 2007 for Psychological Science. We encourage applicants to look into the GRE Fee Reduction Program to determine if you are eligible for a fee reduction.
In the past, nearly all students have received full financial support in the form of a graduate assistantship, which includes a full tuition waiver, a stipend, and some health insurance benefits. We expect to be able to maintain this level of support in the future.
The typical time for completing the Ph.D. program has been five years in the Psychological Science degree program and about six years, including the internship, in the Clinical degree program.
Graduate courses/degrees completed at other institutions are evaluated for equivalency with our requirements on an individual basis.
Students admitted to either the psychology or clinical program may not change automatically to the other; such a change requires a complete re-evaluation of the student's credentials.
We do not have a program in either counseling or industrial psychology in the Department of Psychological Sciences.

Requests for information about these programs should be directed...
