You will need a copy of your transcript as you complete the application process. The GRE will not be required of applicants for the 2023 admissions cycle. Our process will be test-blind: test scores will not be considered by the Admissions Committee even if submitted by the student.

Applications to PAU’s master's and doctoral programs are processed through the Psychology Centralized Application Service (PsyCAS), administered by the American Psychological Association (APA).
