Application Procedures

Effectively immediately, the GRE-Subject test is no longer a required component for application to the Human Services Psychology (HSP) Program (all tracks).
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
If you have already applied to the HSP Program and wish for us to ~not consider~ your GRE Subject test scores, please email to notify us of this decision. Otherwise, we will consider all of the materials you submitted. 

The preferred method of application is through the online application forms available at the UMBC Graduate School website: The online application includes both the UMBC Application for Graduate Admission and the Supplemental Application for the Human Services Psychology program. The UMBC Graduate School website also includes a checklist of application materials. The deadline for application is December 1. Hard copies of all application materials can be obtained by contacting the Psychology Department at (410) 455-2567.

Complete applications require the following:

  1. Application for Graduate Admission
  2. Supplemental Application for the Human Services Psychology Program
  3. Application Fee ($50 for online application; $70 for paper application)
  4. Letters of Recommendation (3)
  5. GRE Scores (General Test only)
  6. Official Transcripts
  7. When selecting potential faculty mentors, please select only faculty who are accepting new students.
