Annual progress report

All graduate students in Psychology must submit an annual report every year.

Graduate students in all Areas other than Clinical must submit the Annual Progress Report form (PDF) each year by June 15. See the form for the instructions and additional deadlines.

Clinical students follow a different set of procedures for their annual reports. Please see the Clinical SharePoint site for relevant forms.

The Director of Clinical Training will inform Clinical students what the deadline is for completing and submitting these forms (typically early April).

Research travel assistantships

We strongly encourage Psychology graduate students to present their work at scientific conferences. The Graduate Studies Office and the Department of Psychology help defray the costs of attendance at conferences by graduate students presenting their research. There are forms to submit and important application deadlines. Please see the following link for details:
