FEES helps students score graduate psychology programs on their transparency about a variety of factors, including the amount of financial support available, career placement prospects, average salary of graduates, the availability of health insurance, including mental health benefits, and average time to degree completion. APAGS also encourages training programs to use the tool to assess the costs their students take on and how easy it is for students to find financial details and other important information about the program.
