Student Admissions, Outcomes, and Other Data

Domain G of the Guidelines and Principles for Accreditation of Programs in Professional Psychology directs doctoral graduate programs to provide “current residents, applicants, and the public” with accurate and complete information about the program including information pertaining to education and training outcomes. In addition, the information should help students make comparisons between programs when making decisions about where to apply for graduate training. In addition to providing information about time to program completion, tuition and fees, internship acceptance rates, other available funding, student attrition rates and licensure outcomes, the Texas Tech Counseling Psychology Program has included additional information that we believe will be helpful to prospective students.
