In 2017, KCU launched the doctoral program in Clinical Psychology (PsyD) under the College of Biosciences, creating a program that will help to meet the growing need for mental health care nationwide.

KCU is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. Our Psy.D. program has initiated the multi-year process of seeking APA accreditation.

In May 2018, we received “Intent to apply” status from the APA Commission on Accreditation after program document review and will submit an application for “accreditation, on contingency” in Fall 2019. The “Intent to Apply” status will expire in May 2021.

Questions related to the program’s accredited status should be directed to the Commission on Accreditation:
