Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Alliant International University offers an array of wonderful characteristics. The program places a large emphasis on multicultural dynamics and offers valuable abroad programs. The school also has a staff of amazing teachers who are truly dedicated to the success of the students and school. A pro that I have experienced in my year at the university is the disorganization of the administration. The administration could do a better job supporting the students.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

The school emphasizes Multiculturalism and creating competent members for the field of Psychology. The faculty all have wide backgrounds of interest and expertise and provide a wide network of possibilities to all students. The only set back is that the program is still working to achieve APA accreditation.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros of the program is that it greatly prepares individuals to work in the psychology field. Whether it is clinical, MFT, school, or Organizational Psychology every student graduates with the right knowledge, skills, and ability to be a successful professional. This schools has a deep rooted emphasis on the practical or applied side of psychology. This is what makes the school successful in producing a strong alumni with the right skills to apply their knowledge into their perspective fields. The con of this graduate program is that there is hardly any financial aid. There are some scholarships available but they are very limited. Most students rely on student loans to finance their graduate studies.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: truely diversity based, they care about students and try to help them. Absolutely great statistics class, a lot of support with academic writing and many class tasks are directed at academic writing. Cons: The reputation is lower than the actual quality of education. Some of the classes require too much work for the units given and a few (but not all, by any means) professors treat highly motivated graduate students like they were junior college kids.

Alliant's grad program in Couples and Family Therapy is one of the most rigorous in the country. This comprehensive program will prepare you for the licensing exam and their community network will assist you in making important career connections.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2010

The Marriage and Family Therapy program was great, especially because of the cohesiveness it offered and small-community feel. The faculty was very supportive and invested in having the students be their best when representing both the school and field out in the community. It allowed the opportunity to make connections with other students and to create new friendships because of the nature of the field, the number of students per class, and the opportunities for collaborative assignments. I transferred from another program because a friend recommended this one and have never looked back. I am proud to call myself an alum of Alliant.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I like this school overall. I have made a lot of really good friends here and developed good relationships with some of the faculty members. However the cost of attendance has skyrocketed, and it appears that university has lowered there standards on who they allow to attend. The scholarships offered here are far and few between. There is not enough support for students.

Extra fine faculty, close and effective mentorship, and a great deal of independence. Cons are the expense and lack of scholarships.
