Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology


It is the responsibility of each student to KEEP COPIES of all documentation related to their doctoral program such as all practicum & internship documentation, personal therapy hours, syllabi, course requirements/catalogs, grade change forms, incomplete requests, student handbooks, grades, notices, correspondence, and any other documents or forms.  

DO NOT depend on your program to keep any of the above for your records, which you may need for future documentation/licensing.

Information for Upcoming Graduates who Plan to Become Licensed in CA

If you are preparing to take the EPPP exam, you must receive permission from the CA board before you can schedule a time to take this exam. To start the process you must complete an application for licensure and pay the required fee of $40. You may do this anytime after you complete your pre-doc internship and complete your doctoral degree.

However, many people choose to start the application process after they complete their post-doc internship. Be aware that if you choose to do so, there may be a delay of many months before becoming eligible for the next step towards licensure. For more information please see the link to the Board of Psychology page that lists the current licensing timeframes: Licensing Timeframes and the link regarding information on becoming licensed: Licensure as a Psychologist
