ADMISSIONS AND FUNDING

Admission to the Doctoral Program in Cognitive Psychology is highly competitive and is based on transcripts, letters of recommendation, a statement of interest, and GRE scores. Students with research experience and a strong background in science are preferred. Students having either a bachelor's or master's degree will be considered.
Contingent on the availability of funding and a student’s progress in the Program, students admitted with a bachelor's degree may typically expect to receive funding through their fifth year of training, and those with a master's degree may typically expect to receive funding through their third year of training. We have a very strong record of financial support: Since the inception of the Program, all students who have requested funding have received it. Financial support comes from several sources: teaching and research assistantships funded by the Department and University; research assistantships funded by grants to individual faculty members, and Department- and University-sponsored fellowships for outstanding students. Students who are not in good standing or are not making timely progress in the program receive a lower priority for funding.
