Prospective Clinical Area Applicants

Note to Prospective Clinical Area Applicants:

In the UCLA clinical psychology program, admissions decisions are made by an admissions committee, not by individual faculty members. However, admissions decisions do take into consideration the match between the interests of those faculty and the relevant interests and experience of applicants and which faculty have openings for new students.  It is strongly recommended that applicants visit the Faculty page to learn more about faculty interests as well as the Student Admissions, Outcomes and Other Data page to review GRE and GPA statistics for students who successfully entered our program in recent years.

Interviews for invited applicants will be held on Monday, Feb. 3, 2019 and Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2019 this year. 

The following Clinical Area faculty anticipate having an opening for new students in their labs in 2020-2021:

     Howard Adelman, PhD

Clinical Area Application Requirements

  • The Psychology GRE subject exam is required for all applications to the UCLA clinical psychology graduate program. Applications will not be reviewed unless the score is received from the Educational Testing Service. 
  • Please note that your admission to the program is conditional on your passing Live Scan background check, which is required for your participation in clinical practica and internship. We can help facilitate the process when you arrive at UCLA.
