Cal State Apply

To find the Pychology master's program on Cal State Apply, click E for Extended Education, then click D for Depth Psychology.

The Cal State Apply process is new and we offer help in your application process. Write down your CAS# when you start your application. Email James Peavler at with your name, CAS#, and state that you're applying to the Psychology master's program in Depth Psychology. This is important because if any item is left blank in the application, we will not receive it and we will not know you applied. James will track applications and assist you should you or your recommender encounter difficulties in the application process.

The University application is in Quadrants 1 & 2; the Psychology MA program application is in Quadrant 4. To see what is asked in the program application before you go online, you may download this old application form, keeping in mind that you have to apply through the online system. Download the old application here.

Applicants do not have to enter by hand every undergraduate or graduate course taken; the Admissions team reviews transcripts and evaluates them.

Applicants do not have to compute GPA. Enter a ballpark number (3.0, 3.5, etc.). The Admissions team computes GPA.

The personal statement is the single most important part of the application, as all applicants meet the prerequisites. It is a 4-page narrative reflection in which you're asked to reflect on your life and development vis a vis a self-chosen symbol/s; the significant events and relationships in your life; and your reasons for wishing to enter the program. Give careful thought to this part of the application and write it before you start your Cal State Apply application so you can upload it directly.

Letters of recommendation are called Evaluations in Cal State Apply. Links will be sent to the e-mail addresses you provide for your recommenders to upload their letters. If your reference has problems uploading a reference letter, they may email it to James Peavler at

If you have questions about the application, email James Peavler at or call (707) 664-2682. For answers to questions on the graduate admissions process for the master's program, visit this website.

Applications will be accepted until May 31, 2018 if space is available. Early application increases opportunities for financial aid and scholarship funding. The program application deadline is March 30, 2018, with a priority deadline of Jan 31, 2018.

Applications are not available on CSU Mentor.
