Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 2020

The Psy.D program at Alliant International University has an integrated health psychology track. Integrated Health Psychology is focused on the psychological and behavioral aspects of physical and mental health, specifically how biological, environmental, cultural, social, cognitive, emotional and behavioral faculty impact health and illness. Additional factors related to health, illness, and/or disability include the health care system, health care policy, and health care providers.

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

This school is for any student looking to build a career in the therapist world. They offer a masters and doctoral level of education, and although it is expensive, if you work and do it right you can manage. Professors are knowledgable, efficient, and supportive. Not your typical 100 people per classroom, as classes are small in size which allows for better learning. I've been here 5 years, and will be sad to leave this year as they have become my family.

Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 2021

Alliant International University and the CSPP (California School of Professional Psychology) together are quite wonderful. The application process is very straight forward, the interview process is formal and far more easy going than one would initially believe, and the faculty and staff on campus are wonderful. There is a real atmosphere of compassion, growth, and understanding on campus from the faculty, staff, and students in the cohort. Everyone is incredibly driven in a variety of regards and it is really refreshing to see how much effort everyone puts into everything they do. Being that this is both a graduate and undergraduate campus, I think it's important to recognize that there is a real environment for growth both personally and professionally since there are quite a few graduate students involved in the different aspects of campus life. I definitely recommend this school for anyone who is driven to learn more about Psychology and to progress in their education, as well as wanting to experience a different atmosphere than most larger institutions offer.

Degree: School Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of the program are the small class sizes that allow for more one on one instruction, the availability of most professors, and the monthly check ins on our practicum hours and experiences. The cons would be the living expense, specifically for the campus in Irvine, it's costly, so I commute. In addition, the seven to eight week courses make it difficult for instructors sometimes to cover all desired areas and the lack of more food options at the school site, however, there are nearby restaurants.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

This program has been a great with the amount of coursework and the ability to give us competitive clinical experience. The only thing I would change is to increase the preparation towards the comp exams.

The program costs a lot, but you receive a stellar education. The faculty are very knowledgeable and have vast experience working in the field. The library services are the best I have experienced, and I came from a top tier undergraduate institution.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

I'm currently a Ph.D student in the Organizational Psychology program graduating in 2017. This school is truly amazing because the professors really know how to provide material and readings that are related to real world situations. It is a very applied program where you will learn how to handle several situations in the real world. The professors provide the students with cases that challenge our brains and require critical thinking. The professors in this program are extremely talented and know how to teach us what we need to learn in order for the students to succeed in their careers. The only con I have is that the tuition is somewhat expensive, but if you can surpass that I would highly recommend attending this school for this program.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

There are many positive aspects to the PhD in Clinical Psychology program at the California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University. The pros of attending this program are that you receive great support, mentorship, and guidance from faculty and staff, the student population is very diverse, the program is challenging, the LA campus is beautiful, and there is a good balance between clinical and research focus. On the other hand, the cons of CSPP is that the cost of attendance is pretty high, the school just became a for-profit university, and, as a result, many of the faculty have resigned. Overall, I would highly recommend the PhD in Clinical Psychology program at CSPP to any student pursuing a higher education.
