We are very excited to offer
you a new option to send your transcripts which is faster and cheaper than our
traditional methods, the Official PDF Transcript. There are some things to keep
in mind if you wish to use this option.
note: An electronic transcript is a specially secured image file of your
transcript that is transmitted by email. It is not automatically produced by a
computer and is reviewed for accuracy and security by our staff before being
sent out. While it is faster and more convenient than paper delivery methods
please allow up to a full business day after your
order is placed for delivery.
FIRST AND FOREMOST... Always check with the receiving
institution FIRST to see if they will accept an Official PDF Transcript. An
increasing number will, but it is your responsibility to make sure.
You will be required to supply the email address where the
transcript is to be sent. Do not assume it is the the general address on the
institution's home page or the address of the registrar. Again, please check
with the institution to determine the correct address.
If for some reason the transcript cannot be delivered, owing to
the nature of email, you will not be charged. You can submit a new order once
the institution has corrected the problem on their end.
In order to keep the document secure, special security and
rights management is applied to the files. This means, amongst other things,
that the document has a special password and will expire after 30 days. More
details about authenticating the document can be found here. You can share this document with other schools who may have
questions about our Official PDF Transcript. We welcome any inquiries from
other institutions that have further questions or concerns.
Prior to working on a research project, students and faculty must take the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) computer-based training program. This web-based course is a mandated educational requirement for Einstein faculty and staff who participate in human subject research. It must be completed every 5 years online and students are required to submit proof of completion to the Psychology Office.
After the proposal is approved, the student must apply for IRB approval. This can be done through the Integrated Research Information Systems (iRIS) website and students should review the online overview of the IRB process prior to submitting their proposals. Students must use their official Ferkauf email addresses to register for both CITI and iRIS and should link these two accounts as CITI training completion is required before IRB submission. Students can upload documents related to their research project such as the proposal, consent forms, and flyers directly into the iRIS site. The student's submission requires sign-off by both the Principal Investigator (the student's research advisor) and the Ferkauf representative to the IRB (Dr. Roee Holtzer) which can be requested through the iRIS site. Once the submission is received by the IRB, the student will be notified via Ferkauf email of approval or requests for additional information or revisions. The IRB application must be turned in early enough so that it is approved before the end of the student's fourth year.

What it is: Program representatives serve as the liaison between faculty and students. They collect student concerns about everything affecting their cohort (i.e. professors, classes, etc) and present these to program administrators in meetings each semester. In turn, they communicate faculty and administrative concerns back to their classmates. They are also afforded the opportunity to participate in and manage group projects benefitting Ferkauf as a whole.
Application process: These positions are chosen by the faculty in first year. There is no application process-faculty choose together based on who they think will be best for the role. Selected students are informed directly by the existing program representatives.

What they are: Opportunities to work directly with faculty members in support of their specific classes and/or research. Each TA position is different and may involve administrative tasks, teaching, research, management and more. All formal TA positions are paid. (If you volunteer to help a faculty member with work relating to classes or research, but you do not have a formal position, this is not paid.)
Application process: These positions are chosen by the faculty members. Sometimes a faculty member will reach out to a student directly. Other times he or she will choose from a pool of students who have applied or shown interest. All students interested in TA positions should send their CVs to Dr. McGinn in their first year, specifying which TA positions they are interested in and why. You are also welcome to email faculty members directly to express interest or to find out more about the opportunity. Note: Faculty members are busy and you may not always get a quick reply. Once TAs have been chosen, a form letter will be sent informing everyone who applied.

What it is: The Organization of Psychology Students is a board of elected students representing each of Ferkauf's programs (school, health, adult and the master's program in counseling). They work to improve social and academic student life at Ferkauf.
Being a OPS representative includes:
Members of board have the opportunity to get involved in a number of domains:
The Executive Board of OPS consists of no less than six members. For the masters program there is one representative who serves a one year term. For all of the doctoral programs, there are two representatives who each serve two year terms. Officers are chair and co-chair, vice chair, secretary, treasurer, social and secretary. There is a stipend for all board members.
Application process: All OPS reps are elected by their fellow students. Each year, the OPS board announces the number of openings for new OPS reps. At that time, students are permitted to "run" by emailing their name, program, year, and a paragraph description of why they are running for OPS representative to firstname.lastname@example.org. This paragraph will go out to students across the clinical program for voting.
Executive Board Members:
What it is: Beginning in second year, each students has the opportunity to serve a mentor, assigned to help one incoming first-year student. Mentors answer questions, offer advice and can meet with their mentees throughout the year. Two mentors from each year are chosen to serve on the mentorship committee, which coordinates the mentorship program.
Application process: Any student can become a mentor. The mentorship committee will send out an email asking for involvement during your first year. Mentorship committee members are chosen by the mentorship committee based on their own criteria which includes students' level of interest and availability as well as interest in community involvement. Their choice is vetted by Dr. Schumpf.
