Admission to the Graduate Psychology Programs at Avila University is competitive and students are selected on the basis of their preparation and ability. If offered admission, that offer is specific to the term stated in the admission letter. If you do not register for classes or complete your first semester, you may be required to apply again in a subsequent semester.
Minimum Admission Requirements:
Along with these minimum requirements, admission decisions are based on a number of factors, including academic degrees and record, statement of purpose, letters of recommendation, and relevant work experience. Please check specific programs for additional eligibility and admission requirements.
Transfer credit will be reviewed on an individual basis after a formal offer of admission has been accepted. To count toward degree program requirements, the credit must be clearly graduate level and a grade of 3.0 (B) or better must have been received. Applicants may transfer a maximum of 15 and 9 credit hours respectively for the Counseling Psychology and General Psychology programs.
Please note: a) transfer credit must be approved during a student's first semester of study; b) courses taken at another university after a student has begun graduate work at Avila must be pre-approved by the Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences.
