Graduate Assistantships

Graduate Assistantships will be provided to all enrolled students for half of their credits in year 1 of the PsyD program (see chart below). Similar Graduate Assistantships will be provided in Years 2-3 of their Psy.D. training (i.e., half of credits registered for each semester), contingent upon funding and satisfactory performance. The full-time internship required of students in Year 4 (3 credits) includes a stipend paid by the internship site (as required for APA accreditation). In years 1-3, each semester, half of students' credits will be covered by the GA as listed below:
