The requirements for the doctor of psychology (Psy.D.) degree are intended to provide the strongest possible professional preparation for students undertaking these programs. Therefore, changes are necessary from time to time. Unless the revised requirements fundamentally alter the nature of the work required of the student, either quantitatively or qualitatively, they go into effect immediately.
Substantial alterations are never imposed on students proceeding at a normal rate of progress toward the completion of their work. Students are subject to new curriculum revisions unless they have an approved program proposal.
