Graduate Students

As a school psychology graduate student, you have made an exciting step in reaching your career goals. Student members have access to resources, fact sheets, and articles to supplement their training.

NASP's Graduate Student Committee serves as a liaison between NASP leadership and graduate students in the profession and conducts activities such as webinars and convention sessions to connect students to each other and to NASP. Read this Communiqué article to learn more about the committee and find out how you can serve on the committee in the future.

Navigating Grad School and Beyond

NASP is here to serve you during your graduate training and help you transition to practice. View fact sheets on general issues, professional development, internships, and preparing for your career. We also host a few webinars a year specifically for graduate students. If you are considering contract services upon graduation, view NASP’s guidance document on that topic.

Communities for Students

The NASP Communities is home to a ton of individual communities for members. We suggest you start with the Graduate Students community, specifically to talk amongst your peers. If you're graduating soon, hop over to the Early Career Professionals community to seek guidance from recent graduates. And don't forget about our most active community for all members, the NASP Member Exchange.

Learn From Your Peers

There are a variety of great ways to hear from your peers about their experiences. Each month in Communiqué, read the Student Connections column for perspectives on unique training opportunities, advocacy work on campus, and more. Last year we started an advocacy Q&A series, where other graduate students or professionals share how to advocate around a specific topic while in graduate school. Or learn more about the Student Leader program, and hear from your Student Leader about NASP happenings.
