MS Master of Science in Psychology School Psychology specialization
NASP approved with conditions
Capella University is approved with conditions by the National Association of School Psychologists(NASP) for completion of its Specialist Certificate in School Psychology. The specialist certificate program, when preceded by the master's program with a specialization in School Psychology, holds NASP approval with conditions for the period of January 1, 2010 to August 1, 2013. Learners must complete both the requirements for the master's program with a specialization in School Psychology and the specialist certificate program to be eligible for licensure and credentialing in school psychology. As a stand-alone program, the master's program with a specialization in School Psychology, is not NASP-approved and completing that program does not lead to eligibility for certification as a school psychologist. NASP program approval is the learner's assurance that the key professional association in the field recognizes the content and quality of Capella's School Psychology offerings.
Accreditation is an important credential to look for when choosing a university. Accreditation is an assurance to you and the public that an institution meets or exceeds standards for quality of faculty, curriculum, learner services, and fiscal stability.
Capella University is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA).
