The deadline for the completed Psy.D. application for admission in Fall 2024, and all required supporting documents, is December 4, 2023 11:59 EST.
The La Salle Psy.D. Program curriculum was thoughtfully and carefully designed in line with APA Standards of Accreditation. Ultimately our programmatic stance is that the doctoral degree you earned should reflect the learning you engaged in while at La Salle. That said, students who have completed graduate work in psychology or a closely related discipline, may apply for credit transfers.
Social Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Psychopathology, Personality and Individual Differences, Cognitive Psychology, Psychological Measurement and Statistical Analysis and Research Methodology are the most commonly considered for transfers. Other courses may be considered for transfer at the discretion of the relevant teaching faculty and Program Director under unique circumstances. Clinical and intervention courses are unlikely to be granted transfer approval.
Credit may be awarded for previous coursework only if they meet the Program’s equivalency criteria with regard to course content and competency level. Faculty will evaluate the syllabi/documentation submitted and transfer will only be considered if the previous course overlaps with the La Salle University course syllabus by 80%.
The maximum number of courses transferred cannot exceed 18 credits of foundations coursework. Students must submit written request for transfer to the Program Director through the Administrative Assistant prior to August 1 of the year that they enroll in Level I and must include syllabi and any other supporting documentation. Course transfer approval does not exempt the student from needing to take the Foundations Exam at the end of Year 1 or from completing any other program milestones.
