The tuition for the 2012–2013 academic year is $14,460 per quarter for Full Tuition (first eight quarters of residency) and $3,615 per quarter for Advanced Study (study in the 9th quarter or later).
This Full Tuition rate is applied for the first 8 quarters of the student’s residency. Because clinical psychology graduate students typically take courses only during the Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters, this means that the Full Tuition rate generally applies to all three quarters of the first and second year of residency, as well as the Fall and Winter quarters of the third year of residency. In the Spring quarter of the third year of residency, most students pay the Advanced Study rate.
Students who no longer need to register for courses and are not receiving a formal scholarship or stipend register for Continuous Registration, which is $100 per quarter.
More information on tuition can be found at tuition and fees page on The Graduate School’s website.
All students admitted to the Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences receive a graduate scholarship that provides 50% tuition remission. Students also receive fully subsidized University health insurance for the first three years of residency (click here for more information).
Specific research labs may provide additional funding to students in their lab, depending on the availability of grant funding. Funded research labs may provide a Research Assistant Scholarship (RAS), which provides full (100%) coverage of tuition and a monthly stipend ($1,880 per month for the 2012-2013 academic year). Students and faculty are also encouraged to apply for external funding, such as NIH training grants. Students from underrepresented minority groups may be eligible for additional scholarships and tuition remission, depending on availability.

All students in the Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program qualify for travel grants to present research at academic conferences. These travels grants are provided by the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and The Graduate School.
