Apply to Psychology Doctoral Practicum Programs

Thank you for your interest in the UCLA Psychology Doctoral Practicum (Pre-Internship) Programs!

The 2023-2024 application period will be open at 12 a.m. PST December 1, 2022.



The “Early Decision” application period is open from December 1st (12 a.m.) until January 24th (11:59 p.m.).

If you are particularly interested in a track, you may apply to ONE track for Early Decision and your application will be reviewed by that track, and decisions will be made on a rolling basis. During the Early Decision period you may be invited to participate in an interview.

If you are called in to interview you may be offered the spot any time thereafter until January 31th, when General Application procedures begin. If you receive an offer, you will have three business days to accept or reject the offer (OR until January 31th, whichever is sooner).

PLEASE NOTE: for those applying Early Decision, we encourage you to apply as early as feasible; spots can fill up quickly.


The General Application deadline is February 1st (11:59 p.m.). You may apply to any tracks (and you may apply to multiple tracks) during this time.

On the General Application page you will be able to upload multiple documents and designate which files you would like to be included with which track’s application.

Your application will be reviewed and you will be invited to participate in individual/group interview in February (specific dates to be determined). You will be notified whether you matched with a track on March 3rd, 9-9:30 a.m.
