Licensure**

Outcome 2007–2014
Total number of students with doctoral degrees conferred on transcript in time period 36
Number of students with doctoral degrees conferred on transcripts who became licensed psychologists in time period 29
Licensure percentage 81%
** As a clinical science program, a significant number of our graduates choose academic and research careers, for which a license to practice is not explicitly germane to their work. Nevertheless, as indicated in this table, of the 36 students graduating from this program in 2007 through 2014, 29 had taken the licensure exam (as of September 2015) and passed it successfully.
