Graduate Assistantships
Teaching Assistants — A limited number of teaching assistantships may be available that include paid tuition and fees along with a monthly stipend in return for work teaching undergraduates. The responsibilities of teaching assistants include (but are not limited to) assisting faculty with grading, teaching and providing help sessions to students.

Research Assistants — A limited number of research assistantships may be available, contingent upon funding availability. Students with research assistantships are expected to conduct research as directed by the grant and supervising faculty.

Students pursuing graduate study in the Department of Counseling and Psychology can select from among several concentrations that are designed to lead to licensure in the State of Tennessee or that lead to non-licensure degrees.

The Department offers admission to applicants who appear to have the highest potential for graduate study and who have the disposition to be successful in their concentration. The minimum admission requirements are:
1. A bachelor's degree from an accredited institution.
2. Satisfactory undergraduate grade point average, usually a minimum of 2.75 on a 4.0 scale.
3. Enough undergraduate training in psychology to do graduate work in the chosen concentration.
4. Three acceptable letters of recommendation for graduate study from faculty members or other persons who have adequate knowledge of the applicant's professional qualities or potential for success as a graduate student.
5. A score of 400 (old format) or 146 (new format) on the verbal portion, and 400 (old format) or 140 (new format) quantitative portions of the GRE® General Test (GRE) along with a 4.0 score on the analytical writing portion.

Satisfying minimal standards, however, does not guarantee your admission. Admission decisions are based on departmental review, using a combination of factors, including an interview to evaluate dispositions for professionals in the chosen concentration.
Students may be admitted with provisional status if they do not meet all of the criteria above but do meet the minimum requirements of the graduate school and are approved for provisional status by the departmental admissions committee. Provisional status will limit students to a maximum of nine (9) hours before the departmental admissions committee makes a recommendation for full admission. To advance from provisional to full admission a student must earn a 3.0 GPA on the nine (9) semester hours of graduate study in the concentration and be approved by the departmental admissions committee.

All applicants from countries in which the official language is not English are required to submit evidence of proficiency in English equivalent to level 9 in FLS.
