What are the costs for graduate programs? What types of financial aid are available? What are other options (e.g., merit fellowships, assistantships, outside employment)? How much debt do graduate students generally take on and does that vary based on degree (masters vs. doctoral) or program (e.g., Ph.D. vs. Psy.D.)?
What about accreditation? How important is it? How can prospective students differentiate between quality programs and programs that could actually hinder their chances for professional internships or future employment?
