    For the Master’s degree program for Behavioral Analysis are the students required to do a thesis to graduate?

  • Leigha,

    Great question! There is no thesis required in either the Master of Education in School Psychology or the Graduate Certificate in Behavior Analysis. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact one of our Enrollment Advisors at 877-398-3059.

  • Karen McCollough says:

    Question #1: Does this program contain all the courses for state licensure in Ohio?

    Question #2: Is there financial aide available for ones pursuing a second Masters degree?

  • Linda Smith says:

    Do you have a practicum as part of your program? Linda Smith

  • We currently do not have a practicum as part of the curriculum, but we are looking into potentially bringing one online so that our students would be able to use their financial aid money to help pay for the supervision required by the BACB (Behavior Analyst Certification Board). However, even if we bring a practicum online, we will still always recommend that you look for someone in your area, via the Board’s website, to see if you can find someone willing to do it for free. The Board has an independent field work option that would allow you to complete the field experience at your place of employment, or somewhere in which you were volunteering, provided that you would be able to meet the required activities set forth by the Board. Please feel free to contact your Enrollment Advisor for more tips on the Board’s fieldwork option.

  • Question #1: Our Master’s program is designed to help people meet the Behavior Analyst Certification Board’s degree and certification coursework requirements to become eligible to sit for their certification exam. However, the online Master’s program does not lead to licensure as a School Psychologist, like our on-campus programs do.

    Question #2: Yes, provided that you have not meet the Federal Government’s aid limit, which at the Master’s level is $134,000.

  • Maxwell says:

    Would my application be considered if I do not meet the 3.0 GPA criteria?

  • Hi Maxwell, the admissions committee reviews applications holistically, so there are things that you can do to strengthen your application if you have lower than a 3.0. Submitting additional letters of recommendation, having a really strong goal statement, and strong work experience can all have the potential to balancing a lower GPA. Please contact your Enrollment Advisor to discuss your GPA and how you can strengthen your application before moving forward with an application. We can be reached at 877-398-3059.
