Interested in Graduate School in Psychology? We have the answers.
Remember, applying to graduate school is like planning a trip around the world – it requires careful planning and preparation well in advance before the journey can begin.
Here’s a quick list of what you need to know:
Now that you have applied, please be sure to check your MyFile for any changes in status, or reminders for outstanding requirements. Area faculty begin rating applications in January, and if a supervisor is interested, you should be contacted by the end of February for our first round of offers. Some Areas have an open house, other areas have individual interviews. After the initial offers, timing is variable but additional offers may be made. Therefore, if you have not been contacted and there is no change on your My File application status, it means you are still under consideration. Your patience is appreciated.
If you are contacted with an Offer of Admission, you will have until April 15 to accept or decline, although we hope you will accept as soon as you can.
