The Right Fit for Your Future

At the California School of Professional Psychology (CSPP) we are focused on finding the best students who are a good fit with our programs. We are looking for students who demonstrate the potential to function responsibly and effectively as practitioners and scholars, as reflected in academic ability, academic preparation in psychology and other personal and non-academic factors. If you feel we’re a good fit for your future plans, we urge you to consider applying to CSPP.

CSPP is now accepting applications for 2019. Students are encouraged to apply early as our programs have limited space.

Faculty will begin reviewing applications and scheduling admissions interviews with candidates for our APA-accredited Clinical Psychology PsyD and PhD programs in early November. Apply early to receive first consideration for admission, as Alliant only accepts a certain number of applicants per year. Students that apply by the priority deadline will also receive first consideration for merit scholarships.

Alliant offers rolling admissions. Applications submitted after the general admissions deadline will be reviewed if space is still available. Please note that our Marriage and Family Therapy and Organizational Psychology and Behavior programs also have spring admission. Students interested in spring-semester entry are encouraged to submit their applications by October 15.
