Following the completion of the M.S. requirements, students desiring certification as a school psychologist must complete an additional planned program of course work and training experience. The following courses reflect the additional 36 credits normally completed as part of the planned program. Those entering with other acceptable graduate degrees will normally complete a 48- to 60-credit program.
Students enrolled in the program are considered to be full time during all phases of the program.
Students should plan to choose, in consultation with their major advisor, an appropriate elective. While this may be selected from appropriate departments throughout the University, it is expected that students will generally choose a course designed to complement and strengthen those areas identified during their training.
A maximum of one independent study course may be utilized for a single elective class offered in the program. Any student desiring to complete an independent study for an elective should discuss this issue with the major advisor early in the program and complete a written contract prior to enrolling in the class.
