Maybe. If you have a master’s degree, you may be eligible for transfer credits, but those are determined by our department’s course instructor for each course based on the comparability of syllabi. These decisions are often made after admissions, but applicants invited for further consideration may query potential transfer credits during that process. Most often, students are able to transfer in some credits (approximately three to eighteen) toward the department core requirements (described in the university catalog for the masters, specialist certificate, and PhD but not much toward the program’s school psychology coursework unless the previous degree was in school psychology. Many students with previous masters also complete a predissertation project because their previous MA theses did not meet department or program requirements for method, scope, or topic. As such, most PhD students can anticipate four to five total years in the program for coursework, exams, research, and internship requirements unless the previous degree was in school psychology, in which case three to four years of study are possible. That said, every students’ degree plan can be individualized according to their past educational and research experience, so this is something to discuss with the program coordinator.
