Professional Education Disclosure

The Wright Institute Doctorate in Clinical Psychology does not fulfill state educational requirements for professional licensure.

According to our disclosure obligations under 34 CFR section 668.43(a)(5)(v), the below chart indicates to what extent the Wright Institute Clinical Psychology Program prepares students to be eligible to sit for state licensure exams. State requirement includes degree accepted. In some instances, states identify specific coursework that the candidate must complete either as part of or in addition to their degree program to be eligible for licensure. Below indicates whether a state has such additional coursework requirements, and if so, whether that coursework is included as part of the Wright Institute's degree program.

The Wright Institute will update this page, but we highly recommend you inquire with the applicable state board to confirm your eligibility for licensure before enrolling in the Clinical Psychology Program. For any questions regarding licensure, we recommend reviewing the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards' online tools, PsyBook, which summarizes the requirement for the state they are interested in seeking licensure or certification listed in the table below.

Also, as specific aspects of the law change from time to time in California, students are advised to seek information about California requirements for licensure as a Psychologist by reaching out to the California State Board of Psychology, located in Sacramento, California; phone (916) 263-2699.

If you still have questions, please contact Dr. Gilbert Newman, Vice President for Academic Affairs, by email or by phone at 510-841-9230 x110. While the Wright Institute can provide some guidance, it is your responsibility to check with the state/territory where you intend to seek licensure to confirm all licensing requirements.
