Congratulations on starting your journey to a graduate degree in IO Psychology!

We are all very excited to have you join our program. Below are a few resources for you prior to starting in the fall.

Meet Your Fellow Students

A private Facebook group has been created for the incoming MAIOP students. Please join and meet your fellow incoming students!

Join the group by clicking here! 

Housing Resource

We know that housing is a concern for many students. We have created this map showing locations where some of our past students have lived. Although we are not making recommendations on where you should live, clicking on locations on the map will give you a student's perspective on that particular location. As always, you should conduct your due diligence regarding a particular landlord or location.

Mentor Program

To ease your transition into graduate school we have an informal mentoring program where we pair you with a second year student. You will be matched based on similar interests and goals. In addition to advisement on the program, your mentor also can offer practical advise, useful information about the grad school experience and knowledge about the community. 

If you would like to be paired with a second year please fill out the survey by clicking here!
