Student & Graduate Reviews

4.14 out of 5.0
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.

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.

4.5 out of 5.0
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.

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.

The biggest pros of this program is that everyone is very supportive (faculty and students) and that the program has a great reputation. The biggest con is the cost - it is extremely expensive and there are no stipends of financial aid.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros and cons are common in life, in Hinduism it is called the Philosophy of li and yang, In Physical Science it is called centrifugal and centripetal forces while Christianity calls it God and Satan. Among the fundamental pros are that Alliant International University is a great school that has invested so much in my future. The Staff are very accessible .This course Will enable me to be relevant to my community and be of service to my community. The Class is not too large, You virtually know all your class mate by name. The school and it environment is conducive for learning. Among the fundamental cons are that the school is expensive to attend. If your Financial aid is not enough, you have to look for money from other source to complete your education. The Campus is not too big, it has what it takes to be a campus but am hoping the school management will have more bigger buildings one day. conclusively ,ANot too long ago, I chose a career which I want to do in the rest of my life in Mental Health Counselling at Alliant International University. This is a career that is going to be an intricate part of my life. There are fundamental reason while this career part in behavioral health is important to me. One of the reason is care for those who desperately need my health as a counselor. Looking through our society, we see people who are suffering from depression, mental and behavioral issues, the bye-products of these behavioral health problems are broken family, depressed people on our street who run to drug and alcohol as a form of escapism. Drug and alcohol lead to behavior that keep men and women who are better part of society the future of our society waste in jail house. This is a fundamental failure if precious souls who need help are neglected without intervention. This is one of the reason I chose a career part in behavioral health. Secondly, We live in a society where we are intricately linked to each other in a web of brotherhood of man or where we are to be "our brother's keeper" according to the Bible. When I care about someone and step in to help or play my role in the web of brotherhood of man and fatherhood of God, there is a psychological fulfilment we all get when we step in to help. That is while the Bible said: "there is more happiness in giving than there is in receiving". This part is important to me because I want to be happy. Each time I give up myself to help people, there is a sense of joy that transcends the metaphysical level. This is while career in behavioral health is important to me. Thirdly, career in behavioral health is an environment where I can improve myself to become relevant to my society and the whole world at large. There is a classical maxim that says "there is always a room for improvement, it is the largest room in the house". Choosing a career in behavioral health means that there are large rooms to improve myself educationally. I could study my master degree and practice as a counselor, I could study for my PhD and be a professor, I could work with kids, who have mental or behavior issue, I could work in the prison. It is like opening a box of candy where you have endless taste. In this field of behavioral health ,there are endless opportunity to advance myself on that is while this field is important to me. Alliant University is a great school to attend.
