        Master of Science in School Psychology Deadline (all concentrations): January 15 Application Deadline for Fall Admission**

        NOTE: Applications are only accepted one time per year for the Fall term.

        Note: All admission materials must be received by the Graduate School office before an application will be reviewedApplication requirements for the Master of Science in School Psychology program include:

        • The online Graduate School application with the non-refundable application fee.

        • Official transcript(s) from all institutions attended for undergraduate and graduate coursework. Transcripts must be sent directly to Winthrop's Graduate School office from the issuing institution(s). We cannot accept transcripts (even sealed, official transcripts) from individuals.

        • Three recommendations. In the online admissions application, you will be asked to provide names and email addresses of three individuals from whom you have requested recommendations. These three people will then receive an email instructing them to complete the online recommendation form. It's a good idea to talk with these individuals ahead of time so they will be expecting the email when they receive it.

          Professional resume

        • Personal statement

        • Supplemental questionnaire

        • Official General Test of the Graduate Record Examination score

        • Personal interview*

        Message from the Program Director: All application materials should be submitted by January 15 of each academic year. Late applications will be considered as openings exist. Finalists for admission are also expected to participate in a personal interview with the school psychology admissions committee.

        Admissions are normally limited to twelve students per year, with study beginning in the fall semester only.

        Admissions to the program are quite competitive (typically about one in four applicants is admitted). The admissions decisions are focused on the selection of applicants who we believe have the greatest potential to be successful school psychologists based on undergraduate GPA, test scores, demonstrated knowledge of the field, some experience with children, and strong recommendations.
