UT Tyler Psychology and Counseling

Sequence of Program

The courses which should be taken first are comprised of basic general, clinical and counseling courses that provide, in conjunction with the undergraduate prerequisite courses, the basis and foundation for the later applied courses.

The applied courses are more specialized clinical applications and should be taken after the basic courses are taken. A degree plan with the specific courses must be completed before the student completes 12 semester hours of graduate work. Students in clinical mental health counseling (CMHC) and clinical psychology must earn a "B" or better in the following courses prior to enrollment in PSYC 5396/97 Supervised Practicum.

Academic Progress

To remain in good standing, all graduate students must maintain a 3.0 GPA.  In addition to maintaining a 3.0 GPA there can be no greater than two "C" grades at the time of graduation.  If the student gets a third "C", one of the classes must be retaken for a grade of "B" or better.  If a student gets a "D" or "F", the student must repeat that class.  Students should discuss the option of grade replacement with their advisor.  Students who do not maintain a GPA of 3.0, should review and follow the university academic probation and suspension policies.

Dismissal from Program

The department may dismiss students from their degree programs for violations of the ethical and professional standards of the American Counseling Association, American Psychological Association or the American School Counselors Association.
