Note: For students entering with prior graduate work, the Clinical Training Committee approves course substitutions for transfer students on a course-by-course basis. Doing this might not reduce time to completion. The student should first meet with the advisor to confer on which courses to petition for transfer. A transfer request form should be completed. The student should then present a syllabus to the instructor for each course for which transfer credit is proposed, for feedback on the acceptability of the transfer. Finally, the student must submit to the committee a final list of the courses proposed for transfer, containing the following for each course: a detailed description of the course, a syllabus, a description of the level of the course and any prerequisites (copies of school catalog pages are helpful), reading lists and information regarding the faculty member responsible for the course.
The maximum number of transfer credits allowed by the Graduate School for doctoral students is 24 semester hours. Courses taken while a graduate special student are considered transfer credits and count toward the 24 credit limit. If a student leaves the program at the master's level, a maximum of nine credits could be transferred toward the degree. See the graduate catalog for the Credit Transfer Evaluation Request. It is extremely rare that core clinical courses are approved for transfer. Approval of courses is normally done once a year, and the deadline for proposal submission is Nov. 15.
|Description||2018-19 1st-Year Cohort Cost|
|Tuition for full-time students (in-state)||$2,169.90 ($1,084.95/semester)*|
|Tuition for full-time students (out-of-state)||$2,169.90 ($1,084.95/semester)**|
|Tuition per credit hour for part-time students (if applicable)||N/A|
|University/institution fees or costs||$ 1,891.94 ($945.97/semester)*|
|Additional estimated fees or costs to students (e.g. books, travel, etc.)||It is not unusual for students to spend in excess of $300 for books per semester.|
*With a 20-hour assistantship, most tuition and fees are covered for students (including the out-of-state fee). However, students are required to pay $63.33/credit each semester in registration fees and $9/credit in tech fees. See https://www.unr.edu/grad/tuition-and-fees.
**The additional $7094.00 non-resident fee per semester is waived for students receiving TA funding. Although it is not guaranteed, students will generally be funded their second year through TA or RA positions. Students have a history of receiving funding throughout their graduate career. However, it is recommended that students apply for Nevada residency as soon as possible in order to avoid paying out-of-state tuition in the case that the student is not funded at any point throughout their graduate career. Should this happen, tuition would be $ 11,350.25 per semester/$22,700.50 per year assuming 15 credits per semester plus $3,139.34 in other fees (See https://www.unr.edu/grad/tuition-and-fees).
Students are admitted to the program with their first year of funding guaranteed, though we have been able to fund all students throughout their time at UNR in the last 20 years. This funding usually takes the form of a Graduate Teaching Assistantship (GTA) position, but in some cases, first-year students might receive a Graduate Research Assistantship (GRA) position. The current stipend with a 20-hour assistantship for 2017-2018 is $18,000/year.
Once students have reached their third year, they are generally expected to receive funding through externship positions as a GTA position. Some GTA, TRA or externship funding positions continue through the summer. Students also have the option of applying to teach courses over the summer to maintain summer funding and are generally successful at procuring teaching positions.
