2nd Round Candidate Match for School Psychology Programs

To assist in efforts to address shortages in school psychology and best assure that qualified candidates have the opportunity to pursue school psychology graduate preparation, the NASP Graduate Education Committee has developed a 2nd Round Candidate Match process for school psychology programs.  This process will help connect potentially qualified graduate student candidates still looking to enroll in a school psychology program, yet perhaps not receiving offers of admission during the initial round of applications, with school psychology programs that have remaining slots for incoming students.

Programs that are willing to consider applicants after an initial round of admissions and would like to be listed should contact Dr. Eric Rossen with the institution and degree program(s) with an opening, a contact name and email address, the website address for the program, and any additional relevant details or notes (e.g., end date for considering 2nd round applications). Programs should also inform NASP when the program should be removed from this list.  Having a program listed does not guarantee future admission of additional students after the initial admissions process.

Prospective students should contact programs individually to inquire about availability, timelines, logistics, and requirements to apply. Review a list of NASP-Approved Programs as well as the NASP Program Database to learn more information about the programs listed below.
