I finished my undergrad training online, but will probably have to do the Psy.D. offline. If it came down to a Ph.D. as the only option I would just opt to take a P.A. or D.N.P. option and hand out scripts instead.

Do you know of a good Psy.D. program that is RA and online?
Northcentral has a fully online PhD program in Pyschology that is not APA accredited:

Fielding has a PhD program in Clinical Pyschlogy that is APA accredited and is available at a distance with short residencies:

The California Institute of Integral Studies has a Pys. D that isnt APA accredited thats at a distance with short residencies:

Pacifica Graduate Institute has online PhD programs in Pyschology which I dont think are APA accredited, plus you have to do short residencies:

If school pyschology is ok, then Argosy University has an EdD in Counseling Pyschology with 3 residencies you have to attend, this program is not APA accredited:

Regent has an Ed.D in Educational Pyschology that is not APA and includes short residencies:

Lastly, Walden University has PhD programs in psychology that are not APA accredited, however you can look at states that allow for reprocity with any of the non APA degrees. A friend of mine is in the Clinical Pyschology program at Walden. She is planning on getting licensed I think in Maryland where an APA accredited degree isnt required and then applying for reprocity or you could look at becoming a licensed therapist or counselor.

Walden's programs are here:

Pricey for a brand new school with limited value. $15,000 for a doctorate?? My California Approved doctorate was $5,000 and it included the MBA. And they applied for accreditation the day after I applied. And they received it. I suspect a new batch of unaccredited American MBAs are going to be showing up in Asia. They are simply too expensive for what they offer.

Exclamation Be Careful about Reciprocity Assumptions!

For all states I checked there is no reciprocity for psychology that assumes that if you are licensed in State A you automatically get a license in State B. I heard that story too from faculty and it is a complete myth.

If you have a license in State A you have to meet the same licensure requirements for State B that someone without any license has to meet. The only perk you get for already having a license is that you don't have to take the EPPP again. If State B requires an APA degree and State A doesn't, State A may give you a license, but State B will round file your application.
