Helpful Hints for Applying to the UTA Psychology GRADUATE Programs

The Department of Psychology at UTA has no clinical or counseling psychology training programs

-The admission decision is based on potential success in the program due to the limited number of graduate student positions and the large number of highly qualified applicants.

-The Department of Psychology Admissions Committees typically make most of the admissions decisions for the Fall semester during the previous Spring semester. It is recommended that applicants who wish to be considered for Fall semester admission into the Department of Psychology's graduate programs complete all steps of the application process on or before February 1.

-The application portal for the Fall term opens in September.

-On all forms and in all correspondence, clearly identify yourself as an applicant to the Psychology Department.

-Take the initiative to call or e-mail the department to determine if all materials have reached us.

-If you wish, include a self-addressed postcard with the materials you send to the department (especially letters of recommendation). We will mail the card(s) back to you as your materials are received.

-Remind the individuals who will submit your references to mail the references early and check with them to see if they have done so.

-Please arrange for materials to be directed to the correct office
