Satisfactory Progress

Clinical Psychology Program

Once students have matriculated, they must be enrolled in the program for fall, winter, spring and summer quarter until graduation. Credit hours can be earned during any academic quarter: fall, winter, spring, or summer. At the conclusion of each quarter, the Clinical Psychology Academic Review Committee assesses student progress based on academics, clinical performance, scholarly activity, professionalism, demonstration of satisfactory completion of all required program competencies, and faculty evaluations. Students must demonstrate satisfactory achievement levels in all of the program's education and training competency areas throughout their time in the program. Problems within any evaluative domain will lead to referral to the Program's Academic Review Committee (ARC) and may lead to a recommendation for dismissal from the program. The ARC addresses all academic problems according to the CHS academic policies published in the University Catalog, as well as policies and procedures published in the Clinical Psychology Program Student Handbook and the Clinical Psychology Program Training Manual. Students are provided oral and written feedback about their progress periodically throughout the year.
