Admissions Requirements and Application for Admission to EIPS.



  • ​I was a seasoned professional working nearly 30 years as a school psychologist when I commenced the Doctor of Psychology Program specializing in Forensic Psychology at EIPS. I needed a special program that allowed me the flexibility of time to work nights and weekends, while challenging me academically. EIPS provided both flexibility and stimulating course work. Educational instruction was provided by faculty with impressive academic credentials and solid teaching skills. The instructors provided timely feedback and insightful comments. My experience at EIPS expanded my psychological training and helped me to develop new skills in the area of forensic psychology. I received the Psy. D. degree in July 2009. I retired from full time employment in January 2010. Since earning my degree I remain a productive professional. I have consulted with several organizations since retiring and currently maintain a successful home business. I am grateful for the educational opportunities provided by the EIPS program. I proudly serve on the Advisory Committee at EIPS.

  • I am a candidate for a doctorate in 2016, and majoring in geropsychology. I was very impressed with all of the interesting programs at the Eisner Institute, and found the course work in geropsychology to be extremely stimulating and challenging. And I find the professors to be knowledgeable, available and helpful.

    I am 83 years old and cannot believe all the knowledge I have gained while attending Eisner Institute. This has been an amazing experience for me.

  • Eisner Institute for Professional Studies is a phenomenal program that
    provides an incredible learning opportunity. As a mid-career professional with
    a busy practice, I would not have been able to complete my doctoral program
    without distance learning. Eisner Institute for Professional Studies offers
    competent and high level instruction with course material that is relevant to
    working as a professional in the real world.
