UMBC won't be disclosing their funding offer until I accept the admission offer. They have sent a mock funding offer letter and I am unsure what to expect. Is anyone else here facing the same situation? How are people navigating funding issues? Please feel free to DM!

Does anyone know anything about the accreditation for Mercers PsyD program? I just received an interview invite but was never really sure about this program. It says their accreditation is under contingency? It’s unclear to me if they’re going to lose it and I don’t want to waste my time doing another interview if this school won’t even be accredited anymore. If anyone know anything, that would be great!!

I don't know anything about the specific program. However, accredited on contingency is the status given to new programs who meet all APA accreditation requirements aside from outcome data. In order for a program to be fully accredited, there needs to be a graduating class so that the university can provide those outcome statistics. On contingency status is a relatively new status APA created to allow new programs accreditation prior to graduating their 1st class (since the vast majority of accredited internships require the student come from an accredited program). The programs have to submit the self study for final accreditation within a short time frame after graduating their 1st class. For all intents and purposes, on contingency has all the benefits of full accreditation, but yes, there is a risk that the program may not graduate a cohort and submit the self study and everything associated with that (APA site visit) within the appropriate time frame. 

It looks like they have graduated 3 cohorts already and their contingency status expires in 2023, so I would maybe reach out and ask what's going on. Did they submit the self study yet? Are they waiting on the site visit? I know site visits had been suspended due to Covid. I would be a bit leery if they can't give you a clear answer, and honestly if that answer isn't "APA is coming for their final site visit on X date" because there isn't really any reason they shouldn't be at that step already considering they graduated their 1st cohort in 2017-2018.

I was accepted off of the waitlist! I will most likely accept but I have not made it official yet. However, once I do, I believe that the cohort for Fall 2021 will be filled!
