Prospective students should review the general graduate admission information for Graduate Academic Admission Requirements
All prospective students desiring admission into the School Psychology Program must simultaneously apply for admission to the School of Graduate Studies. This combined application form should be completed on-line at https://apply.wisconsin.edu/ . Please submit the application form, the fee, and an official copy of your undergraduate transcripts to the School of Graduate Studies. Graduate School policy dictates that only transcripts with a university seal, delivered in a sealed envelope from the university or one sent electronically directly from the university, can be considered an "official" transcript.
Complete the UW-Whitewater Graduate School Application form and submit it along with the fee online. Have your undergraduate transcripts sent to the School of Graduate Studies digitally or by mail, NOT to the School Psychology Program. Please see the address below.
Complete the UW-Whitewater School Psychology Program Application online and submit it to the Program. Complete an "Autobiographical Statement." In two to three pages (double spaced), this statement should discuss relevant personal background information and an in-depth description of why you have chosen to pursue the field of school psychology. This statement should provide the Admissions Committee with a strong sample of your ability to express yourself in writing.
Email the Autobiographical Statement Dr. Christine Neddenriep at email@example.com
Secure three letters of recommendation from appropriate persons (e.g., former professors or work supervisors) who are familiar with your academic and personal qualifications for graduate study in school psychology. Have them write on their own letterhead, and send the letter as an email attachment directly to Dr. Christine Neddenriep at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may call 262-472-5413 to inquire about whether your letters have been received.
If you are interested in applying for a graduate assistantship, complete the application form available from the office of the Graduate Studies. Application deadline is February 15th. For more information regarding graduate assistantships, please see Financial Assistance Opportunities.
After your materials are submitted, they are reviewed by the Admissions Committee consisting of Program Faculty, a member of the psychology department, and graduate assistants in the School Psychology program.
If your application is subsequently passed forward by the Admissions Committee, you will be contacted via email for a personal interview near the deadline date. Please do not call the program to inquire if you will be asked for an interview; we will contact you. A very few individuals, because of extreme travel distance or other factors, may be admitted without an interview.

Due to the high volume of applications and the limited enrollment capacity, individuals are urged to begin the application procedure early so as not to be eliminated from consideration due to an "incomplete application packet." Applicant interviews take place in Laurentide Hall, which is located on the corner of North Prince Street and West Starin Road. The building is identified by the letters LT on this map: http://www.uww.edu/campus/uwwmap.pdf.
The application deadline for all admission is January 15th.
The School Psychology Admissions Committee will review applicants as soon as they are received. Applicants will be informed by e-mail as to their status. The School Psychology Program admits students only in the spring of the year for classes beginning the following summer term. Interviews will begin in later January with applicants whose materials are complete.
