Application Process

  • Apply to the College of Graduate and Professional Studies as a degree seeking student.  The application will include uploading the following files:
    • Statement of Purpose in cover letter format
    • Resume
    • Writing sample
      • Please use a “research” paper from a previous assignment.  This should be evidence-based and should be technical, not persuasive. 
    • Letters of Recommendation (2)
      • Within the CGPS application system, applicants will provide names and emails for references.  These references should include one (1) academician and one (1) clinician.
  • We form a Graduate Admissions Committee composed of faculty, clinical supervisors, and current graduate students to review and evaluate applications.
  • After the review process (January), we conduct on-line Skype interviews.  We invite all students to visit campus to meet with faculty, view the campus and clinical sites, and the Terre Haute community throughout the application process.  However, the Skype interview is intended to save potential students time and money.
  • Upon selection, the program director will contact students with offers for assistantships and tuition waivers.
