Admission to the Clinical Psychology program at Case Western Reserve University is very competitive. We receive 200-250 applications for consideration.
The application procedure is a time-consuming process and should be initiated as early as possible. The School of Graduate Studies must receive all required materials before any formal action can be taken. It usually takes several weeks for all the application materials to be received and processed. Unofficial documents of GREs, transcripts, and unsealed letters of recommendation will not be considered. An application is only considered complete when the Psychology Department processes all official documents.
Students are accepted for fall admission only. To receive full consideration for Fall 2013 admission, all application materials must be on file in the Department of Psychology by the application deadline. Applications completed after this date will not be given full consideration.

An important consideration in selecting a graduate program is the fit between a student and the program philosophy, structure, and faculty interests. Potential applicants should contact the specific faculty member with whom they are interested in working. Visits prior to application are not permitted as this may give an unfair advantage to local individuals. Invitations for face-to-face interviews are made in early February. This is an excellent time to learn more about the program.
The Director of Clinical Training (DCT) does NOT meet with potential applicants who would like general information or to visit. The DCT responds to e-mail inquiries regarding specific questions that cannot be answered here.
