Grading Policies and Academic Standards

The Professional School of Psychology grades on a pass/fail basis. At the master’s level, we assume you will do grade ‘B’ level work; at the doctoral level, we assume you will do grade ‘A’ level work. PSP students enjoy a collaborative learning environment. Unlike many other schools, our students do not tend to be highly competitive. Mature learners are people who have experienced life and understand that living is full of ambiguities and complexities. In keeping with our mission statement, we encourage our students to work together on projects and papers. Our goal is that each student finds the way to maximize their education.
