Applying to the I/O Program

Admission is competitive and the deadline is February 15.  Please note that we have many more applications than openings, so meeting all criteria does not guarantee acceptance.  However, we do take a holistic consideration of candidates beyond minimal standards.  While the minimum GPA for regular status is 3.0, both the overall and average junior/senior GPAs are around 3.5.  Eighteen undergraduate credit hours in Psychology must have been or will be completed prior to admission. (Please also note that we encourage you to submit your materials as early as possible to ensure that all of your materials have been processed by the College of Graduate Studies and Research).

Applicants must submit the following items of information directly to the College of Graduate Studies and Research:

  • A completed application form
  • Official GRE scores (subject portion not required); the average GRE scores have been 153 each for both verbal and quantitative
  • Official transcripts from all colleges attended
  • Three letters of reference (at least one from a psychology professor, two preferred) to be solicited directly from the Graduate College from those listed on your online application
  • A short statement (no more than two pages) regarding why you are interested in I/O psychology and your future plans
  • An up-to-date resume
