Does St. John’s offer any financial
The School Psychology Programs offer excellent funding
opportunities. Fellowships are available for PsyD students only,
however, M.S. students can obtain an assistantship. Assistantships
are available in other departments throughout campus including
Theology, Student Life, Wellness Center, Athletics, Freshmen
Center, Provost Office, etc. Students apply for an assistantship
like applying for a job, including a resume and an interview, and
then have to be selected for the position. M.S. students can have
an assistantship for up two years. Assistantship openings are
announced through emails to the school psychology students. All
assistantships are renewable on a yearly basis and not guaranteed
for more than a year (based on availability and job performance).

Full-time assistantships provide tuition remission for a maximum of
fifteen credits and sometimes, a stipend. Recipients are prohibited
from outside employment for the duration of their contract with the
University. The University requires recipients to maintain a full
time course of study and work a minimum of fifteen hours per week
in their respective department.
Can I work full time while attending your program?
You are permitted to work full time if you do not have an
assistantship or fellowship. Classes start in the late afternoons
(with no class on Fridays). However, presentations and colloquia
are held throughout the semester during late morning and early
afternoon hours. In 2nd year, students are also required to see
clients at our Clinic for Psychological Services to complete
assessments, and students must schedule their sessions outside of
class time. In 3rd year, M.S. students are required to complete a
full-time internship (5 days per week).
When would I find out if I am awarded a assistantship?
Once officially accepting an offer of admission, students can begin
looking for and applying for assistantships. The school psychology
programs will notify students of any assistantship openings around
campus as they become aware of them.
Where can I find more information about Financial Aid?
For financial aid, all graduate students are eligible for the same
federal loans, subsidized and unsubsidized. In order to receive
financial aid, students must complete a FAFSA online in the spring
of the year prior to the academic year they want to receive
financial aid. Find out more information on financial
