School Psychology Resources

The School Psychology program is located in the Department of Psychology along with doctoral training programs in Clinical, Experimental, and Social Psychology. To date, all of the graduate students in our program have received full funding through a variety of graduate assistantships. All assistantships are 20-hour a week positions and include a tuition scholarship (30 credit hours) and a stipend. The stipend amount ranges depending on the assistantship (range, $13,000 to $18,000). Please note that all first-year graduate students receive funding in the form of a department teaching assistantship. For advanced graduate students, a variety of school, community, and university sites offer assistantship positions. The variety of these opportunities allow students, over the course of their graduate training, to gain a wide array of skills while allowing students to tailor their experiences consistent with their professional goals.

Examples of assistantship positions offered each year include:

  • Teaching at Syracuse University. Examples of classes previously taught by students include Behavior Disorders in Children, Applied Behavior Analysis, or Child Development.
  • Local area schools. Schools offer access to diverse student populations and can include urban, suburban, or rural settings.
  • The Center for Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders/Concussion Clinic at SUNY Upstate. This position trains students to conduct and write neuropsychological evaluations for children with cancer or sickle cell disease, and allows for research to be conducted with the Concussion Clinic.
  • The Family Behavior Analysis Clinic at SUNY Upstate. This clinic serves children with severe behavior problems and provides graduate students with opportunities to conduct applied behavior analysis interventions.
  • The ADHD Clinic at SUNY Upstate. The clinic serves a wide age range of children and adolescents with ADHD, and the position allows for assessment and research experiences.
  • The ARC of Onondaga. This position is split between conducting assessments and providing consultation to a special education preschool.
  • SPICE, a special education preschool. Provides the opportunity to conduct assessments, consult, and intervene in a special education preschool setting.
