Some eligibility criteria and application procedures vary by service branch. For applicants considering multiple service branches, choice and assignment to a particular service will depend on the applicant's preferences, the service's preferences, and the availability of training positions in the individual services. There are no application fees. There are no tuition costs at USU. Students are often responsible for textbook costs. All military track applicants must be United States citizens and must have a bachelor's degree.
Military applicants or civilians seeking admittance to the military track must also contact the service(s) they are applying to (Air Force, Army, Navy) for specific requirements and procedures.
The student selection process involves active participation of core faculty members and adjunct military faculty to assess aptitude for a career in Military Clinical Psychology. Prior military achievement relevant to successful attainment of program goals and objectives also is evaluated. The final selection process includes a formal interview of those students who have been determined to be of acceptable quality and interest from written application information. Students admitted to this program typically have an overall undergraduate GPA ranging from 3.4 - 3.8 and GRE scores ranging from 310 - 325. However, students with lower GPA and/or GRE may be considered for admission based upon other strengths in their applications. The academic year begins at the end of August. Successful applicants, therefore, should be prepared to report to USUHS by mid-August.
