Doctoral Studies

Student Admissions, Outcomes, and Other Data

Time To Completion FOR ALL STUDENTS ENTERING THE PROGRAM

STUDENT ADMISSIONS, OUTCOMES, AND OTHER DATA

The program can be completed in 5 years of full-time graduate study and requires a Masters degree in counseling, clinical psychology, or closely related field as a pre-requisite to admission. Most current students are taking between 6 years and 7 years to completion, including pre-doctoral internship. If a student elects to complete a 2 year half-time pre-doctoral internship the program, it will take a minimum of 6 years to complete. Transfer students are not admitted into the program. Any applicant with questions about pre-requisites may contact Dr. Julia Phillips at j.c.phillips@csuohio.edu or by phone at 216 687-5424.
If a prospective student is missing a few of the pre-requisites from the masters degree, but otherwise qualifies for the program, that student may complete the missing pre-requisite courses early in their doctoral program, thus not extending the time required to complete the degree. Some newly admitted students elect to complete the pre-requisites in the summer before starting doctoral studies. Students who are deficient in several pre-requisites are likely to extend their programs if they do not begin to enroll in the pre-requisites at the beginning of doctoral studies.

The program strives to provide graduate assistantships, with or without tuition remission, for all first and second year students who request funding. In the 2017-2018 academic year, all students in good standing beyond the second year who requested assistance received some funding. Assistantships are given for one year and students must reapply on an annual basis. The Director of Training organizes student applications for assistantships and assists students as they apply for assistantships across campus. A variety of 10-20 hour graduate assistantships have been made available to students including research, teaching and professional service (i.e., University Counseling Center, University Disability Services). For 2017-2018 the minimum stipend for 10 hour assistantships is $5,900.00 per academic year. A 20 hour assistantship has a minimum stipend of $11,800.00 per academic year. The specific times that students work are negotiated with the supervising faculty member so as not to conflict with any courses students may be taking. Typically, graduate assistants are asked to help with classes faculty are teaching by grading exams, keeping records, helping with library research for classes, and other tasks.  Graduate assistants also assist with program management.  Graduate research assistants are involved in research activities such as library searches, literature reviews, data collection, data entry and analysis, manuscript preparation, report writing, often resulting in opportunities to collaborate on presentations and publications.
