Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at Argosy University provides an environment for learning that is suitable for working professionals as well as parents. Additionally, the academic quality is outstanding, even when taking classes online. One drawback of this program is the fact that it is extremely expensive as this is a for-profit insitution.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

I honestly love my Community Counseling program! By being a for-profit school, it can be perceived that the quality of education is not there. However, I am confident that I am receiving it equivalent to traditional universities. The program is designed for a individual who works. They offer classes on campus, as well as weekend format. The student to teacher ratio is great. The professors actually care about you,and want you to succeed. They provide you with resources when you need them. The only con to the program is the cost.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2014

You get out what you put in. There are very dedicated professors, and there are professors who are not.
4.33 out of 5.0

3.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: geared towards working professionals and taught by professors with experience in the field. Has a great and very active career services department. Cons: Not very competitive to get in and workload is not very demanding.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2015

I love being able to do online or on campus classes. Trying to work full time and further education is a difficult task that I am sure most struggle with. The instructors at Argosy understand this and do their best to work with students without reducing expectations of the quality of learning. I feel like school has shown exceptional support in and outside of the classroom.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

This school is very helpful and someone is always there to help you when you need it. They make you feel like you are part of a family when you are there. The professors all want to see you succeed, and if you put your time in they are willing to help you through the process. The area surrounding is very nice, but expensive to live there as it is a suburb of Chicago.
3.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: Online class, saves transportation and time. Public Administration is where I want to be so when the prison reopens, I am hoping for a job in the Department of Public Safety. Cons: Living on another island, I've had problems with tutoring and financial aid.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros- Counseling Psychology program education is of high quality because it is taught by adjunct professors who have extensive experience in their field, and/or currently practicing in their field. Ability to enroll at the school through a bi-annual basis Opportunities for outside networking with professionals of the field, attendance of offered workshops, and relevant presentations for field of choice. Incorporation of online education that supplements in-class education through online discussions with classroom peers and professor. Do not have to pay for parking. Cons- Insufficient non-loans financial aid. Not a university feel. Feels more like a corporate business location
