Abstract

The National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) collects data annually on both specialist and doctoral school psychology programs via its National School Psychology Program Database Project Survey. The project goals are to maintain transparency regarding the status of graduate education in school psychology, inform the field about relevant trends, and provide prospective students and other stakeholders with a wide variety of information on school psychology graduate programs. This report summarizes the data from 171 specialist and 88 doctoral programs during the 2014–2015 academic year. Programs reported data on applications, enrollment, financial support, graduation requirements, internship placements, and more. Applicant acceptance rates were 40.7% across specialist programs and 31.0% across doctoral programs. There was a wide range of credit hours required for graduation, with 50–124 needed for specialist programs and 48–189 needed for doctoral programs.
