Accreditation & Licensure Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association. The curriculum of the PsyD program is designed to meet the educational requirements for licensure as a psychologist in the state of Minnesota. It may satisfy licensure requirements in other states as well; there are additional requirements for licensure as determined by the Psychology Licensing Boards in the various states, and successful completion of the program does not guarantee licensure. Information about licensure requirements in the various states may be found at the website of the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards. The curriculum has also been designed to meet the standards of the Commission on Accreditation of the American Psychological Association. However, as a newly developed program, we are not accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA). The program intends to apply for APA accreditation when we have met the necessary criteria.
