Time to Completion for All Students Entering the Program

Students who enter the PhD program with prior graduate coursework do have the opportunity to request substitution of prior coursework for some program course requirements. See our “Guidelines for Substitution of Prior Coursework” policy in the Counseling Psychology PhD Program Student Handbook. Time to completion is shorter on average for students who enter with a prior master’s degree in a related field, but the minimum time to completion for all students is 5 years (including the one year pre-doctoral internship). 

Program Costs


*All incoming students in the 2023-2024 cohort received a graduate assistantship that qualified them for a full tuition waiver. Applicants should consult the current Cost of Attendance webpage in the event they enroll without a qualifying assistantship. Tuition and an alternate fee structure are assessed to students who do not hold a graduate assistantship. This does not apply to any current students.
