Ph.D. Program - Clinical Psychology


The Clinical Program guarantees funding for all first-year students.  Historically, we have been able to fund all students in good standing in the doctoral program in clinical psychology for at least four years and usually also fund students electing to stay for a fifth year prior to their internships.

For the 2019-20 academic year, our funding ranges from $15,000 - $17,073 depending on the specific appointment and whether the appointment was for 9 or 12 months (not including summer salary that some graduate students received from their mentors' grants or teaching). In addition to the stipend, graduate students receive a tuition waiver each semester for full-time study, a waiver of the maintenance fees and health insurance. Students are responsible for program fees, technology fees, facilities fees, and transportation fees.
