Doctoral Program in Counseling Psychology Receives 7 Years of Continuing Accreditation

The doctoral program in the Graduate School of Professional Psychology has received seven years of continuing accreditation status from the American Psychological Association, the most favorable outcome and a feat not easily achieved by programs.

Particular strengths noted by the American Psychological Association’s Commission on Accreditation were the program’s commitment to diversity, a climate of positive and respectful relationships between students, faculty and staff, and strong program leadership.

"On behalf of the Commission on Accreditation, I extend congratulations to the faculty and students of the professional psychology program for their achievements," said Jacqueline Remondet Wall, Ph.D., director of the Office of Program Consultation and Accreditation. "The Commission also expresses its appreciation for your personal commitment, and the corresponding support of your administration, to develop and maintain the best possible quality of graduate education and training in psychology."

The next American Psychological Association site visit will occur in 2023. “Continuing accreditation by the American Psychological Association adds value to our doctoral degree for current students, future graduates and for our alumni," said Christopher Vye, Ph.D., L.P., chair of the Graduate School of Professional Psychology. "Receiving seven years of continuing accreditation is a testament to our faculty’s commitment to delivering a high-quality doctoral program that is consistent with the university’s mission."
