Certification of Advance Graduate Studies (CAGS) or Certification Only in School Psychology

If you have already earned a master's degree in a related field, you may qualify for our CAGS or Certification Only program in School Psychology.  An interview and transcript review can be completed prior to applying to determine eligibility.


  • To receive course credit, a course must be comparable to the Eastern University course in terms of major topics, concepts, and objectives.
  • You must have earned at least a B in each course under consideration.
  • Unless you are working regularly in the area covered by the course, no more than 10 years may have elapsed between the time you took the course and your admission to the CAGS program.
  • No more than 10 courses (30 credits) of comparable coursework will be included in the program of study for CAGS.
  • Either at the conclusion of the interview or shortly thereafter, you will be informed of how much of your prior graduate work is applicable to the CAGS program, and a program of study will be finalized.
