ADMISSIONS TO THE MARRIAGE AND FAMILY THERAPY SPECIALIZATION

 

The MFT specialization has highly competitive admissions. Because of the sequencing of required courses, students are only admitted to begin study in the fall semester. Due to the intense nature of the training, students are only admitted for full-time study. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate part-time students. Each year six to eight students are admitted.

The priority application deadline is December 1st. Applicants who submit a complete application by the priority deadline will receive consideration for departmental and college scholarships and fellowships.
The final deadline for all application materials is December 15th.

Top applicants will be invited to campus for an all-day interview in February. For out-of-state applicants, travel funds may be available to help defray costs of attending the on-campus interview.

Application Deadline: December 1, 2017

On-Campus Interview Day: February 17, 2018*
