WATERTOWN, Mass., Aug. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Psychological Association (APA) announced today that eight new partners have joined PSYCAS, the association's centralized application service for candidates in master's and doctoral psychology programs.

PSYCAS helps participating graduate psychology programs improve their applicant experience while leveraging unparalleled reporting capabilities and real-time metrics to make more strategic enrollment decisions. The following programs have joined the original beta user group of Mercer University Health Sciences Center, Midwestern University – Downers Grove, Midwestern University – Glendale and Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine on PSYCAS:

"PSYCAS was a given for us," said Bill Froming, Provost at Palo Alto University. "Not only does the solution offer services and support that will help us meet our strategic goals related to expanding the reach of our programs, but it's APA endorsed and powered by an organization that processes over one million applications each year. We look forward to seeing results during the next application cycle."
"We're pleased to see both the quality of schools and the speed with which the APA has added schools to its CAS," added George Haddad, Founder and CEO of Liaison.
