Eligible Doctoral Programs
When registering for the Match, each applicant must identify his or her school or university and doctoral program. All eligible doctoral programs are shown in this list.
What if a school or doctoral program does not appear in this list?
Review the APPIC Policy on Doctoral Program Associates which outlines the eligibility criteria for doctoral programs. If a school or doctoral program does not appear in this list, but you believe applicants from the program should be eligible to participate in the Match, please contact NMS and be prepared to provide the following information about the program: name and location of the school or university, type of doctoral program, degree type, name and contact information (phone, e-mail) of the program's Director of Clinical Training (DCT), and the internet address (URL) of the program's web site if available. APPIC will need to verify the eligibility of the program for participation in the Match. If APPIC approves the program, NMS will then add the program to the system.

Within each state, schools are sequenced by city, then alphabetically by school name within city. Schools in Canada are listed separately.
Information on the List
Doctoral programs that are eligible for the Match are identified by the program type, degree type and the name of the DCT from the program. In addition, each doctoral program is designated as one of the following:
- APPIC Doctoral Program Associate: Most (but not all) doctoral programs subscribe to services provided by APPIC; these programs are referred to as APPIC Doctoral Program Associates. Each APPIC Doctoral Program Associate has been assigned an Associate Number by APPIC, and this Number is shown in the list for each doctoral program that is an APPIC Associate.
APPIC Doctoral Program Associates receive notification directly from NMS of the result obtained by each of their students in each Phase of the Match. They will be provided with a list of the applicants who have indicated they are from that program, to confirm that students have identified the academic training program correctly when they registered for the Match. Students from these programs, as well as students from CCPPP Member programs, pay a significantly lower fee to register for the Match than other students.
- CCPPP Member: Canadian programs that are not APPIC Associates but are members of the Canadian Council of Professional Psychology Programs (CCPPP) are shown in this list with a designation of "CCPPP" instead of an APPIC Associate Number. Students from these programs, as well as students from APPIC Associate programs, pay a significantly lower fee to register for the Match than other students.
- Neither APPIC Associate Nor CCPPP Member: These programs are shown in this list with a designation of "Non-Associate."
