Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) in School Psychology
Additional Program Requirements
1. Assessment and Planning Conference.
All students participate in an individualized Assessment and Planning (A&P) Conference at the conclusion of each year in the program. A&P Conferences serve two essential functions: (1) overall assessment of a student's performance in all areas of the program and (2) individualized degree planning. A&P Conferences establish and assure clear academic and professional standards, while identifying and assessing a student’s unique background, interests, learning goals, and professional aspirations. Intermediate A&P Conferences are held on an as-needed basis to address emergent issues.
2. NCSP application
Students will be expected to apply to be a Nationally Certified School Psychologist, if not previously earned.
3. Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL)
A passing score on the Communications and Literacy Skills test of the MTEL is a requirement for advanced standing students who reside in Massachusetts. The equivalent test will be accepted for out-of-state students.
