Time to Degree Completion for Students Entering the Program

 

Incoming students are now able to complete their coursework in three, rather than four years. This allows students to concentrate on their dissertations in the fourth year. Students are expected to select dissertation mentors by the end of their third year, and must have an approved dissertation proposal prior to applying for internship.

Please see the following tables for detailed information about time to completion, program costs, internship match rates, and program attrition.

Also, policies that allow students to enter with credit for prior graduate work, and the expected implications for time to completion, are described below.

Only Psychology graduate-level credits, either Master's or PhD-level, with a B- grade or better are transferable to our Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology. The maximum number of graduate credits that can be transferred is 15 credits.  Students who transfer 15 credits will only need to complete 75 credits of course work rather than the 90 credits required; transfer credits are always at the discretion of the Program Director. Should the student be permitted to transfer the maximum 15 credits, it would reduce their completion of their course work by one full semester.

The Program Costs

CUNY is financed by New York State and, thus, there is an in-state and out-of-state residence tuition structure. An in-state, first-year student in 2014-2015 pays $8,360 for the entire academic year. An out-of-state resident pays $25,050. There is an application process by which an out-of-state resident can apply for reclassification as an in-state student. Details on that process are available here at the Graduate Center’s tuition rates page.

For current, detailed, comprehensive information about financing your studies, please visit The Graduate Center's "Tuition and Fees" webpage by clicking here.

Financial aid for doctoral matriculants consists of fellowships, grants, assistantships, loans, and City College work-study assignments.

Financial aid varies from year to year, but typically a range of fellowship support is available to students during their years in residence, and at least half the students in the Program are receiving funding of some type.  All awards are made on the basis of need and merit. Detailed information on a range of fellowships is available here.

Requests for applications and any additional information (e.g. financial aid) should be addressed to:
