PsycNet Account

Harry, Jianping, Pardeep, and Richard are the department’s IT guys. They set you up with your PsycNet account (“a network computing account that will provide you access to departmental computers, networked disk space and shared printers”), and any other technologically-related issues you might have. They are very friendly, and very patient with us.

Graduate Handbooks (click here)

It is highly recommended that you read these!! The Graduate Student Handbook is for everyone, both clinical and experimental students, and covers a lot of the research related expectations and gives you a handy breakdown of resources that are available to you as a grad student. The Clinical Psychology Graduate Program Handbook is specifically for students in the clinical program and covers the clinical training aspects of the program.
