Additional Admissions Information:
The School of Graduate Psychology seeks students with both academic aptitude and personal qualities that will enable them to develop personally and professionally into effective psychologists.
A personal interview is required for all finalists who apply to the program.
Applicants are advised that Pacific University requires criminal background checks. This background check is required to determine students' qualification to provide services; it takes place after admission and deposit. A criminal record may disqualify a previously admitted student. In addition, drug screenings and additional trainings are required prior to the start of clinical practicum placements.
