Applied Psychology Graduate Program Admission Requirements
Students are welcome to apply for admission regardless of their undergraduate major. Those who have fewer than 18 credit hours of undergraduate psychology are required to complete a graduate leveling course that provides training in the foundational areas of psychology.
Students who have a cumulative undergraduate grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or 3.25 or higher for the last 60 credit hours meet our GPA standards for admission. Students with a GPA below 3.0 may qualify for admission on the basis of the formula described below.
- All college and university transcripts
- GRE (if your based on GPA is below 3.0)
- [GPA times 100] + Quantitative + Verbal + Converted Analytical ≥ 730.
- [Last 60 hours GPA times 100] + Quantitative + Verbal + Converted Analytical ≥ 752.
GRE Analytical Writing Conversion Scale
The GRE Analytical Writing sub test is scored on a scale of 1-6. This score is converted to the metric of the other sub tests as follows:
1.0-2.0 = 130
2.5 = 135
3.0 = 140
3.5 = 145
4.0 = 150
4.5 = 155
5.0 = 160
5.5 = 165
6.0 = 170
