Master's Admission Requirements



Although it is not necessary to have an undergraduate major in psychology, applicants to the program are expected to have completed as least 12 credit hours of study in psychology. These courses should include general introductory psychology, psychological statistics, research methods, and learning or cognition (or their equivalent). In the event that applicants are deficient in one or more of these areas, they may be required to take remedial study at the undergraduate level.

It is recommended that applicants have a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.75 (on a 4.00 scale). Also, we recommend minimum scores of 151 on the GRE-Verbal section, 145 to 150 on the GRE-Quantitative section, and 4 to 4.5 on the GRE-Analytical Writing section, although test criteria are not rigidly applied in all cases.

To be assured of consideration for fall admission, all materials must be submitted by February 15. Financial aid applications must also be made by February 15.

Indiana State University does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, handicap, veteran status, or age. The department actively recruits minority, handicapped, and nontraditional students.
