Thank you for your interest in the University of Northern Iowa School Psychology program! 

The UNI School Psychology Program is a NASP-approved full-time program which consists of two degrees: a Master of Arts in Education (MAE) and an Educational Specialist (Ed.S.), both of which follow a scientist-practitioner model. The MAE in Educational Psychology: Context and Techniques of Assessment is earned after the first full year of coursework (minimum 32 credits) and the successful completion of a literature review. The Ed.S. degree in School Psychology is earned after completion of an additional 36 semester hours, including a full-time internship. There is both a thesis and non-thesis option for the Ed.S. program. Individuals who have earned a masters degree in a related field may be admitted to the Ed.S. program. These individuals must complete all of the requirements of the School Psychology program to be granted the Ed.S.

To be considered for admission, all application materials must be submitted by December 15th for admission the following Fall semester. (Ex: For admission Fall 2018, application materials are due Dec. 15, 2017.) The Program only admits students for study beginning in the fall semester.

We have included a great deal of information about our admissions process on our website. If you have questions about the program or the application process, please contact Dr. Nicole Skaar  at 319-273-7649 or
