Program Costs and Funding

The clinical psychology doctoral program is for full-time students only. All doctoral students receive full tuition remission ($29,295 per year) and a waiver from all additional graduate fees ($280 per term). Additionally, all graduate students are offered an opportunity to receive Drexel's basic health insurance plan at no cost. The current minimum guaranteed stipend for students is $13,000. In practice, stipends tend to be higher because of grant funding, University-awarded scholarships and fellowships, and assistantships within the department (mean = $12,600/yr, median = $14,000/yr).
