Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

The staff employed by Alliant International University truly demonstrates sincere dedication to their students. Small class sizes offer individualized attention which I truly believe is an asset to the success of a graduate student. My passion for the field of Psychology has intensified dramatically from being in the presence of professors and peers who have done nothing but support these interests and desires for my future. Though I've enjoyed every moment of my time with this school, I cannot wait until I have earned my Master's degree and can officially become a therapist to those in need and impart the knowledge that I have retained from this amazing program. The only negative comment I have regarding Alliant is the lack of financial resources offered regarding aid for tuition. I unfortunately needed to take out many unsubsidized loans in order to pay for each semester but I do realize aid for graduate programs is hard to come by so I was very grateful that I was offered the assistance that I did receive.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

I am very happy with my graduate program at Alliant International University in Los Angeles! The school has a wide diversity of students and perspectives by students and faculty. The school goes out of its way to have us feel welcome and to make our social life great! The staff keep us updated on technological issues and what is going on around campus including traffic reports and local events. The faculty is highly competent.

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

Some of the limitations faced in my graduate program is the quality of technology used for teaching. Another challenge is the limited choices in class scheduling.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Hard to talk with certain faculty about the difficulties you are experiencing in the program. Living in San Diego is a higher cost of living if you live off campus. Social network is more difficult too if you do not socialize with your cohort. The education level is great, learning a lot. Internships and practicum sites are wonderful. Learning a lot mostly at the practicum sites.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Attending this program was a very enriching experience. This program is recommended to anyone who is interested in professional psychology. This institution prides itself on training budding professionals. Additionally, AIU is very big on diversity issues and is dedicated to graduating culturally competent Psychologists.

Degree: Forensic Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

The faculty members are extremely committed to seeing the students succeed. I am so pleased that I picked this school and feel that I made the right decision coming here. There are plenty of groups on campus, however, sometimes due to scheduling of classes it is hard to get to planned events. In addition, the sheer volume of school work sometimes makes it hard to stop and take some down time. Overall this school is great and it's a shame that the Forensic track is not continuing.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

The California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University offers excellent mentorship and financial support. I feel like a valuable member of the school's community. My peers and professors provide the ideal amount of motivation and competition to keep me working the hardest I possibly can while still maintaining a passion for my program. The amount of financial aid available is not one of the best qualities of the program, which is why I am seeking this scholarship to assist with tuition, fees, textbooks, housing, and commuting costs.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

PROS - The program is accelerated, so one is able to finish quickly. Class sizes are small enough to make them more personal and easier to connect with peers and instructors. The requirements for graduating are clear and the admin is available to help. Many opportunities for studying abroad. Assistance with training/internship placement. CONS - Expensive! Even with scholarships and grants, it is likely one will still need to take out a loan (or two). Long, late night classes (sometimes wouldn't leave until after 10pm). The workload is heavy once practicum starts, may make it difficult to work a real job while managing classes, class work, and practicum. The school is going through a reorganization process and it can be hard finding the right people to ask for help when needed.
