Educational Training Outcomes

Time to Completion

Since 2003, all students who have entered the program and graduated did so in a mean of 5.7 years (median = 6 years) if they entered without a master's degree, and a mean of 4.6 years (median = 4.0 years) if they entered with a master's degree. The percentage of students entering without a master's degree who finished in 5 and 6 years is 33% and 67%, respectively. The percentage of students entering with a master's degree who finished in 4, 5, and 6 years is 60%, 20%, and 20%, respectively.

Program Costs

For students who enter into the Ph.D. program in 2009, the tuition in the first year is $488 per credit hour (plus fees of $1,092). Students will take 18 to 21 credit hours. The number of credits taken and, as a consequence, the amount of tuition decrease in subsequent years (see Model Ph.D. Program Schedule).

Licensed

From 1997 through 2007, 71 students received their Ph.D. from the Clinical Psychology Program. The following provides information on licensure of these graduates: 57 are licensed; 10 are not licensed as of June, 2009; 1 has been licensed but now is inactive; and 3 could not be located. Thus, excluding the last four graduates just mentioned, 84% (57 of 67) of our graduates are licensed.
