Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 1993

I have positive comments about Alliant. I graduated with a PsyD from this school when it was formerly known as USIU, back in the 1990s. My professors were excellent and I completed my required pre-doctoral practicum/post-doc supervised hours with well-qualified PhDs. I might add: the comprehensive exam at that time was very thorough, detailed and challenging. If you didnt know the material, you did not pass the comp exam. Since passing the EPPP, I have been employed as a practicing clinician with a large hospital for many years, and also supervise PhD and PsyD Clinical Psychology students. Everyone has to pass the EPPP no matter where you go to school. Every psych program has its pros-and-cons. I was very happy with my education and training at USIU.

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.

Degree: Psychology

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.
