Although you may complete many of our graduate degrees through distance learning courses, all of our graduate degree programs have residential requirements. Residential requirements are academic requirements, and their completion is important for your successful academic progress as well as transformational learning.
Residential requirements vary by program to accommodate the learning outcomes associated with specific degree programs. Where, how often, and when residential experiences occur also varies by program. Request more information  today and find out about the residential requirements for your degree program at Saybrook.
The admissions process for the School of Psychology & Interdisciplinary Inquiry is designed to ensure a good match between you and Saybrook University, as determined by the Faculty Admission Committee which selects individuals most likely to succeed in graduate studies at Saybrook. In our review, we emphasize:
All MA applicants must have a bachelor’s degree from a regionally-accredited institution. All PhD applicants must have a bachelor’s and master’s degree from a regionally accredited institution. The minimum expected grade point average (GPA) requirement is 3.0 from the last degree-granting institution, though exceptions may be made.
A student who wishes to pursue a Saybrook doctoral degree but who lacks a master’s degree must apply to the MA degree program first; upon graduating he or she may then apply to the PhD program. In consultation with the degree program Chair, a maximum of 31 of Saybrook master’s degree credits may be transferred toward the PhD in the same discipline.
