Admissions Requirements for Ph.D in Applied Behavioral Analysis Program

Admission to the program is based upon a two-step process. Students must first apply to and be accepted as qualified applicants by the Endicott College Van Loan School of Graduate and Professional Studies and the Institute for Behavioral Studies.

This number will be raised to twelve with the hiring of a fourth member of the faculty, who will serve as the full-time Director of Doctoral Programs. Additional students will only be admitted once current students either graduate, withdraw from the program, or their tenure has expired. Information regarding the number of expected openings in the program for the upcoming year, the area of academic focus of the individual faculty, etc., will be posted annually on the Institute for Behavioral Studies website.
