Getting Into Grad School
There are presentations posted in the My Psychology Advisor Blackboard Organization on both the application process as well as taking the GRE. It is strongly recommended that you listen to both presentations and speak with a faculty member about any questions you have!
There are many things to think about when applying to grad school: what program? what school? how much will it cost? A helpful resource is the Kisses of Death in the Graduate School Application Process document.
How to Write a Curriculum Vitae (CV)
A curriculum vitae is developed over your entire professional career. You may not have some of these items at this time, so omit them until you do have those experiences. Length is not an issue with a curriculum vitae, they can be one page or several pages.
- Name/Professional Address/Home Address, Phone number/Fax, Email (Things like sex/date of birth/marital status are okay but do not get too personal, e.g. James Dean fan)
- Educational History (Degree/Subject/Date)
- Listing of Undergraduate GPA/ Last two years or Psychology GPA is okay
- Listing Graduate GPA is okay.
- Professional Honors
- Appointments (Academic/Professional/Research Assistantship Experience/Teaching Assistantship Experience)
- Grants (Funded ones only/Agency/Amount) Do not list ones submitted but not funded.
- Publications (Journal articles/book chapter: Note any in unrefered journals) Use latest APA format whenever possible.
- Conference presentations/published abstracts
- Manuscripts/Conference presentations under review
- Courses taught (number/where) indicate that ratings are available if needed

Depending on which schools you apply to, you will likely have to take a comprehensive exam called the GRE. There is a general GRE exam as well as a subject (psychology) GRE exam.
