Accreditation & Licensure


While not currently APA accredited, the PsyD Program at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota has recently become eligible for consideration for accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of the American Psychological Association, as our first cohort of students prepare to complete the program. The program submitted its initial self-study in application for APA accreditation in the spring of 2015. We will post information on the status of our application on the program’s website as it becomes available. The program cannot guarantee either the timing or the outcome of the APA accreditation process.

Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association, (312) 263-0456 or


The PsyD Program in Counseling Psychology at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota has been granted Designation Status by the ASPPB/National Register Designation Committee effective August 18, 2014. The program is listed with the National Register of Health Service Psychologists in the Minnesota jurisdiction. This means that the program meets the "Guidelines for Defining 'Doctoral Degree in Psychology’" as implemented by the ASPPB/National Register Designation Project. Therefore, a graduate of this designated program who decides to apply for licensure as a psychologist typically will meet the jurisdictional educational requirements for licensing in Minnesota and most other states.
