    Thank you for helping me in the past.

    I completed my MBA in General Management from the University of Liverpool, United Kingdom, in 2010 without a Bachelor's Degree.

    The only psychology-related subject I studied was Organizational Leadership.

    I want to do a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology or PsyD.

    I have looked into Fielding Graduate University's Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology program but I am hesitant to apply as they require a Bachelor's Degree.

    I am looking for the cheapest Online APA-approved/AccreditedP Doctorate in Clinical Psychology or PsyD program in the United States, United Kingdom, or elsewhere.

    I am also looking for a mentor who can guide me through the process - preferably someone who has gone through the journey by her/himself.

    Any advice, guidance, assistance, or feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    There are no online, APA-accredited programs because APA does not accredit online programs. Fielding is the only hybrid/blended program I'm aware of. If you can find an online, CPA-accredited program in Canada, then that would be just as good as APA, but I'm not sure if that exists.

    @sanantone ,

    Thank you very much for providing me with such useful information.

    I have emailed all three, Fielding, Albizu, and Felician, to inquire whether they will accept me for admission based upon my MBA without a Bachelor's Degree or not.

    I also found the following list, "Accredited doctoral programs for training in health service psychology: 2020," on American Psychological Association (APA)'s website but it doesn't highlight online/hybrid programs.

    I was wondering if you or someone has a sample of the following:

    • Statement of Purpose
    • Critical Thinking Writing Sample
    • 3 Letters of Recommendation

    These are required for admission. Indeed, I am keeping my fingers and toes crossed.

    Any advice, guidance, assistance, or feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    • Statement on diversity

    Thank you.

    You won't be writing the letters of recommendation, but you might want to search for a recommended format for requesting a letter of recommendation. There are many websites that show sample statements. Look at several of them and determine which ones will work best for your situation.
