The School Psychology Program at the University of Cincinnati is dedicated to preparing highly competent professional school psychologists from a scientist-practitioner model at the doctoral (PhD) level. Graduates are prepared to make significant contributions to this challenging field through up-to-date and research-based professional practice. Doctoral-level graduates are prepared research-based professional practice plus leadership, systems change, and advanced behavioral theory and research. The program operates from an eco-behavioral orientation and emphasizes the delivery of school psychological services from a consultative, collaborative problem-solving framework to prevent and remediate learning and behavior problems. A child advocacy perspective provides a framework, along with a scientist-practitioner perspective, for guiding decisions and practices that provide supportive educational environments and enhance positive outcomes for all children through research-based practice and data-based decision making. Both theoretical and empirical bases of professional practice are emphasized, and a diverse range of practical field experiences are provided throughout preparation. The Program fosters respect for the uniqueness and human dignity of each and all persons. Self awareness, positive regard for others, and respect for differences are actively cultivated and expected of all students.
Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
