We do not require the subject test. We only require the general GRE. The institution code for Kent State University is 1367, and the departmental codes are 2016 for Clinical, and 2007 for Psychological Science.
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. For the former, you may wish to consider programs offered in our College of Education, Health and Human Services in community, rehabilitation, or school psychology. Requests for information about these programs should be directed...
Applications for admission are processed when they arrive.
Applicants can apply online. Please see admission requirements and how to apply.
No. All applications for admission are evaluated for assistantship as well, but at different time; October for Spring and March for Fall.
Applicants are required to submit their GRE scores. While we evaluate each application in its totality, we expect GRE scores for Verbal plus Quantitative to be greater than 295.
