Degree: School Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

The program is very flexible for students that work full time, because there are evening classes for those students who would like to go to school and work full time. Also, the diversity of the student population is great there are a lot of minority students and professors which creates a great campus climate. One of the cons of the graduate program is that there are not on hands course during the first years of the program, so that students could have a better idea of what type of work the students will be doing.

Degree: Forensic Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

I am working on my PsyD. in Forensic Clinical Psychology at Alliant, and I am really enjoying the field and for the most part the school. They have a good amount of social activities and a newly active student government association that is putting on great social and work events. Sometimes the work load can be overwhelming, especially over the required summer sessions, but the faculty and program director are open to changes based on student concerns. Overall I enjoy the program and compared to some other programs the price you pay for this degree slightly below the average for this area.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

The faculty are what make this school such a success! All of the professors take the time to get to know their students individually and provide additional information on subjects according to the student's personal interests. The campus has a small, close-knit sense of community and while the students are academically competitive, they are extremely willing to help one another, making learning fun and exciting. A range of classes are offered which is suitable to a variety of topics within psychology, allowing the student to decide which avenue of psychology to follow. There is also a special focus on multiculturalism and working with both minority and low SES level clients so that we can work to make our communities a better place. Unfortunately, the commute to campus is long and difficult, seeing as the campus is in a rather inconvenient location. Many students have also begun to experience frustrations with the constantly changing staff now that the university has decided to change its financial structure. Nevertheless, the education is enriching. Learning from and working with the professors is well worth it!

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The school is high quality although, it needs more attention from the business community. For it's other programs such as Business Admin and forensics.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros: The professors are top-notch, My cohort is very compassionate, however, very competitive, and we push as well as support each other to complete our workload. The cons: I'm on permanent disability from being involved in a terrible car accident and money's very tight. Being a student at 52 years of age has its disadvantages, like not having parents to help support! which is why I'm applying for scholarships. Alliant international University is the best school for MFT amongst other things. Thank you, Isaac

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

A big pro to my graduate program is that it really emphasizes cultural diversity and training, which is very important. The professors are also very encouraging and approachable. A con would be the cost of the program. Although I would highly recommend this program, many people cannot afford to pursue higher education due to the program cost and affordability of living.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

The program is great and has excellent professors and mentors. My main complaint is the disorganization of the program and requirements that must be completed. At times we are given different. conflicting information which can be frustrating.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

It is a very, very practical program for those who want to work as psychologists, respected all over in clinics of Los Angeles. Cons: they do not put as much emphases on publishing / conference proposals etc.. so you have to pursue that on your own and ask for help if need be.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013

The program was good if you are interested in doing Forensic Clinical Work. I was in the transition period where the classes that I was suppose to take were not offered and had to piece through my degree. The experience was great with the faculty and learned a great deal.
