1. PSYCAS Application
Applicants are required to submit their applications to PSYCAS by May 1, 2022. Please refer to the PSYCAS application instructions for specific details about completing the application, required documents, and processing time. Applicants are strongly encouraged to complete their PSYCAS application early in the cycle. Midwestern University operates on a rolling admissions basis where applications are reviewed throughout the admissions cycle.
2. Letters of Recommendation
Applicants are required to submit a minimum of two letters of recommendation from professionals to PSYCAS . The Office of Admissions will only accept letters of recommendation received directly from PYSCAS. Letters of recommendation should be written by professionals who know the applicant well (teachers, advisors, professional colleagues or supervisors). The applicant should refer to the PSYCAS application instructions for specific guidelines and requirements for submitting letters of recommendation.
3. GRE Scores
For the 2021-2022 Admissions cycle, we have decided to make the GRE admissions requirement optional. Midwestern University’s Clinical Psychology Program has always conducted a holistic review of all applications. Traditionally, the GRE was one piece of our holistic review. Our program recognizes that GRE scores do not always demonstrate the full potential of the candidates applying to our program. As such, for this year the GRE score submission for applications will be optional, with the plan to eliminate this requirement entirely for admission beginning in 2022-2023 admission cycle.
For those who would like to submit GRE scores, please use the Midwestern University institution code of 1769.
Scores will be accepted from tests taken no earlier than January 1, 2017.
For more information about the GRE, contact Educational Testing Services (ETS) at 609/771-7670 or 866/473-4373 or visit ets.org/gre.
4. Completed Applications
The Office of Admissions will send letters verifying receipt of PSYCAS applications with all required materials to all applicants who meet the minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0. The letters will also include instructions on checking the status of the required application materials online. Applicants are responsible for tracking the receipt of their application materials and ensuring the submission of all required documents. Only applicants who submit completed applications with all required application materials will be considered for potential entrance into the Program.
