Program costs and financial aid

University support for CPCP students is perennially very strong and typically all CPCP graduate students receive full tuition waivers as part of a graduate assistantship package. These tuition waivers cover tuition for up to 15 credit hours along with the associated General Service Fee; other fees are the responsibility of the student. In 2010-11, 100% of the CPCP students who were enrolled in program-related courses (i.e., not students enrolled only in a single dissertation credit) on campus received an assistantship and a full tuition waiver. The value of the assistantship package ranged from $10,800 to $12,500 plus the tuition waiver for a nine-month appointment. These assistantships vary and may involve teaching, research or administration. They usually require 20 hours of work per week. Students who complete their coursework and internship but who have not yet completed the dissertation are required by the Graduate School to enroll for 1 credit hour each Fall and Spring semester until graduation and the cost for these credits is out of pocket.

2013-14 tuition and fee rates for graduate students are calculated on a per credit hour basis. The table below details these costs for the current Fall semester.

1 $447.16 $294.00 $741.16
15 $6,604.32 $4410.00 $11,014.32

There is also a $155 transportation fee, a technology fee of $16.25 per credit hour and a library fee of $3 per credit hour. Occasionally there is an additional course fee and these vary according to the course (e.g., an assessment course requires a $75 fee to cover test materials and interpretive reports generated).

Admission and attrition rates

Typically, 8 to 10 new doctoral students are admitted each year from a pool of 70 to 100 applications. About half of the students admitted enter with a Bachelor’s degree, with the other half having a Master’s degree. Over the last 7 years, we have admitted an average of 9 students per year.

The attrition data for the last seven student cohorts is presented in the table below. On average, we have approximately one student per year who leaves the program without completing his/her Ph.D. degree. Quite often, these are students who enter with a Bachelor’s degree and who leave after completing their Master’s degree due to a change in career plans. Other students leave for familial responsibilities/pressures. During the past seven years, one student left the program for academic reasons.

Overall, the CPCP placement rate for all who applied for internships over the last 7 years was 74%.

Time to completion

Data on students in our doctoral program who graduated over the last seven years (2005-2012) indicate the following information about their length of time to completion:

Number of years in program for those graduates who entered with a Bachelor’s degree:

  • Mean = 6.96
  • Median = 7
  • Mode = 6

Number of years in program for those graduates who entered with Master’s degree:

  • Mean = 6.2
  • Median = 6
  • Mode = 5
