Following completion of the program, graduates are eligible to apply to become a Nationally Certified School Psychologist (NCSP) and/or New York State provisional certification as a School Psychologist.

Prerequisite courses, transfer credit of completed graduate courses, and specialized and individualized needs of the student will be reviewed and assessed following acceptance into the program and assignment of an academic advisor.
