Will completing the clinical program lead to licensure?
Our most recent data indicate that 90% of our alumni who graduated between 2009 and 2017 are licensed. Our graduates who did not become licensed typically are in positions that do not require licensure (e.g., teaching faculty or research positions). Please note that graduate training alone does not lead to licensure immediately upon graduation because many jurisdictions have licensure requirements beyond the curricular requirements of a graduate program (e.g., passing oral and written licensing exams). Still, the professional preparation you receive in our program will assist you in preparation for licensure as a Clinical Psychologist. For more information on how the Kent State University Department of Psychological Sciences Clinical Program fits into your plans for licensure, please see our Professional Licensure Disclosure.
