Resource Urls

  • Chat Online  Chat Url
  • Tech Requirements  You will need access to a computer with a Web connection for this to work. It is strongly recommended that you have a fairly powerful PC computer with a DSL or cable modem connection. Students can get by with dial-up modems but it will slow you down a great deal as there is a lot of information to download over the course of the program
  • Admin Requirements  You must be a graduate of an accredited undergraduate institution and provide official transcripts to document that. You will also be asked to provide three letters of reference in support of your application. Finally, you will be asked to write essays outlining your goals and reasons for applying..For students coming from a non-psychology background, there are 4 courses that are prerequisites: developmental psychology, physiological psychology, personality or abnormal psychology, and statistics. GRE scores are not required for admissions. If, however, you wish to transfer into the Ph.D. program, they will be required at that time.
  • Costs  The tuition for the DL program is the same as on campus. For the 2005-06 academic year, it is $768 per unit. There are 21 units in the first year of the program. There is also a $257 per quarter technology fee. Therefore, the tuition and fees for this year total $16,899 for first year students. The second year of the program has 18 units (instead of 21) so the tuition costs will be somewhat lower
  • Scholarships  PGSP offers a number of grants to students who are academically qualified and who demonstrate financial need
  • Loans  Financial assistance for PGSP undergraduate students may be available from federal, state and institutional sources in the form of grants, scholarships, loans and student employment
