Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

The faculty were very supportive, two of whom I still have very close relationships with even about two years after graduation. I attended the Online Campus, and I have to say that this is not for everyone (as anything else, perhaps), but you would be surprised at how much you can learn. I did not major in psychology in college, and by the time I graduated, I had sufficient competence as a student with an MA to be accepted into a couple of prestigious graduate programs in psychology. I cannot say much about campus safety, but the school requires all applicants to go through background checks after acceptance. Financial aids could definitely be better with more grants and fellowship opportunities, but they may be working on it. Their academic writing seminars are informative, and on-ground students enjoy many social events throughout the year.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Anyone who may think of attending the online portion of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology would benefit from the impactful professors, curriculum, and overall fun you'll have. As a colleague told me in the past, the one thing that people cannot take from you is your education. My education in an M.A. in I/O Psychology have guided me, brought about a significant amount of confidence, and helped me adapt to an ever-changing market. You will love the online environment, but it isn't for everyone. The lack of face-to-face meetings as in a classroom setting can be difficult; further, I suggest either a hybrid of online and on campus or using the GoToMeeting feature online, which allows for "face-to-face" virtual meetings. Overall, education (for some) can be a monumental achievement, and having a bit of financial help can go a long way. Best of luck! :)

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2019

The Chicago School of Professional Psychology Online offers a great array of Masters and Doctoral programs. The online availability allows students to be able to pursue full time employment whilst still managing to get a degree. The school year is scheduled excellently leaving little for the student to have to organize. You attend class by participating in dynamic discussions online and follow a well laid out curriculum in order to achieve your scholastic goals. The professors are very experienced in their individual fields and make for an excellent learning environment. The diversity of the students is also outstanding; you will be studying with people from all over the US and the rest of the world, which allows discussion to come from a huge array of backgrounds and make for an overall amazing learning experience.

Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

The Chicago School of Professional Psychology did a great job with their foundational core curriculum for the Organizational Leadership PhD program. My only recommendation is to have another course or two designed to assist the student in completing all three chapters of their dissertation so that they are better prepared to defend their proposal.

The Chicago School of Professional Psychology is great. They walk you through the curriculum step by step and afford you the ability to have one to one contact with professors while studying online. Your advisor is there with you every step of the way making sure you are successful.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

This program is amazing! I have been introduced to materials, articles and other resources that I was previously unaware of. So far, I have been intellectually challenged which is something I appreciate. Yes, you will work but the trade off is rewarding. I highly recommend the online program.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

The Chicago School of Professional Psychology is a great school. I'm currently doing the Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program online. My professors are very knowledgeable and are willing to help in any way. Although the classes are fast pace, the learning is exceptional and the opportunity to network is endless with every class. Through this program, you will experience personal and professional growth which will prepare you for your career in counseling.

Online classes fit my busy life. I was still able to connect with a diverse group of students all around the US. My professors were very helpful and assisted me in any way that I needed. I highly recommend this school to anyone that wants to serve others.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros of this graduate program are that you definitely get a quality education. Compared to some coworkers who have done an ABA grad program elsewhere, TCSPP is the better choice education wise. I feel that I will be well prepared for the BACB exam when I am finished with the program. However, the workload can be a bit much at time, especially with working a full time job, but if you manage your time just right, it really isn't that bad.

Degree: Psychology

Some of my answers are not entirely fair because I am an online student. So for anyone who reads this entry please disregard "social life," "affordability of living" and "transportation" because it doesn't apply to me. Anyhow, I feel the program is excellent, thus far. I am a month in the program.
