It was a breath of fresh air to see reviews with the same concerns that I have. I am not crazy, and clearly I am not alone. 1) Admissions counselor's blatantly lied and misled me. It was recommended to me from mentors that I find a program that is actively involved in your clinical placement. I asked the admissions counselor that question, whether TCSPP would facilitate clinical placement and he enthusiastically said yes. Well, that is not the case, and you are 100% responsible for your placement... Read More

This school was my dream school. When I enrolled, I went to class for 2weeks and had to drop out. The books and other added fees had gotten to be too much to handle. I even filled out a book voucher and NEVER got that however, I was approved. Do not attend this school because it will cause medical issues if you are on a budget and trying to make ends meet. I personally pray for any student that attends online and cannot get the accurate material 2 weeks before the classes start. It's hard to catch... Read More

I love this school. They do a great job of helping us think more critically about research and how to diagnose organizational problems. The professors have gone to an Ivy League school, served as a senior in the government, served in the military, etc. I admire their diverse backgrounds and the way that they encourage us to think differently about a concept. Moreover, our school is very diverse in staff and students.

complete crap. no support. will lure you in and leave you when you need help. just go to a school that can really support you. this place is a sham and takes advantage of neurodivergent individuals promising them work or the ability to find placement for hours. Its all a lie. they also break accommodations and try to charge you for classes you don't attend all the while trying to collect on it and threatening collections. Abusive institution.

This school is a money pit.They flaunt "scholarships" and "fellowships" and then when you received your FA letter you see that the only thing you qualified for was a loan. $10k for two classes...I enrolled in a certificate program that literally cost me $20k for 12 credits!!! I took 2 more classes that added another 10k to my loan debt. They are just in it for the money. I finally had enough and finally called FA and asked for an itemized accounting - NO REPLY so far after 8 days. I'll be going elsewhere,... Read More

Yikes. I'm not sure what's going on with the other reviews but I'll be speaking positively about my experience with the school. First off, I attend the DC campus. Due to the pandemic, we attend on-campus classes once a month. I'm in the Ph.D. in Business Psychology - Consulting Track program. I like the program because I feel that I am learning so much in such a short period of time. I feel that the assignments are appropriately challenging and are refining my knowledge, skills, and abilities as... Read More

Aside from some disorganization, which seems inevitable given the pandemic and merger of TCSPP and Argosy, this has been a great experience so far. The faculty really make this program and their instruction has been both highly educational and invaluable for real world application.

You will be ok here if you are white. Typical for-profit, gate keeping colonialist school. Dare to complain about a profesor, they will be promoted for it! But wait, that sane person in the point of contact for student concerns so why even bother! If you are in the PhD program, mind that you wont get to pick your chair. This is so important because when these relationships don't work, you will be adding time to your time there meaning more student debt (~$1500 per cr hr). They do have a diversity... Read More

I'm at the Chicago campus in the applied behavior analysis MS program and have been very happy with the professors and chairs of the department. A couple of the adjunct faculty members could be a little more involved but they also bring real-world experience to their classes since most are still working directly with clients, which has been a very important learning experience. I have learned a lot despite 2020/2021 being so hectic with COVID. The department has tried to do their absolute best to... Read More

I was at the DC campus for Forensic Psychology and left because the chair was vindictive and created more problems than solutions. He was the Dean's pet and made everyone around him uncomfortable. I was ostracized by him many times and he seemed to get off on his power trip. Nobody liked him, including his faculty and GAs. It has taken many months for me to recover, but I never forgot how toxic he and the so-called Dean were. The campus was a wannabe university that borrowed it's reputation from... Read More

The teachers are great and what I learned was exceptional. However, this college is a degree mill. They guarantee jobs after graduation, but if you are working at a restaurant, that counts as employment. They don’t guarantee they will get your a job in your field. The professors will try to help but not the school. Additionally, it’s way overpriced for what you are getting. You aren’t getting anything extra than any other college that isn’t as expensive. They say they are a not-for-profit, but sometimes... Read More

Highly don't recommend. Most of your professors are adjunct or PhD candidates. You won't be learning from people who have been in the field longer than you have (sometimes I was in the field longer than them!). This school also does not care about minority groups. They talk about diversity and inclusion but their words do not match their actions. Do not expect to be treated equally here. The worst part was the thesis. The thesis process was the most aversive thing I have ever experienced. They kept... Read More

This is a money pit- you finish the course work then they keep you in Dissertation classes forever with no results. They only help who they want to help. My dissertation chair was so bad- I just stopped paying for absolutely nothing. Should have went to USC .

Run! Do not waste over 1k a credit hour. Be prepared to not be responded to when you reach out for help or clarification. Be prepared to face plagiarism allegations if your writing is too good. Even if you can prove that you wrote your own paper by giving physical proof, they will not listen. Instructors are allowed to treat you however they choose, so if your not liked enough... tough luck! Be prepared to feel targeted if you ever have a complaint on an instructor. The school will tell you how they... Read More

My experience has been very poor at the DC campus. The classes were useless, I learned very little. The head administrators are unhelpful and often aggressive towards students. This has happened to many of my friends, not just my opinion. They may get angry if you ask questions and we are told to do what they say or get out. One administrator sabotaged another student's internship application out of spite. I was told contradictory things about my training and class requirements, which caused several... Read More

The professors were AMAZING. They really helped you with what you needed and went out of their way for you. Small classes hep so you can ask questions. The admin in the other hand was a pain. They always send you to someone else if you have a question and that was annoying. Overall I enjoyed my time there and it was really because of the professors. They all really wanted to help you succeed.

a day ago Do not enroll in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. It is a program for white anglo-saxon Protestant women only. If you are a black female, male, LGBTQ, disabled and using a reasonable accommodation, or non Protestant Christian you will at minimum have a difficult time and will be likely harassed and repeatedly refered to a disciplinary committee that the college claims is not a disciplinary committee. This school also saves every single piece of paper you ever give them, and will force... Read More

I've just completed my first year of the IP Phd program (trauma concentration). It has been a great experience. The professors have a wealth of knowledge, they are concerned about you're academic well-being and are quick to respond if you have questions or concerns. The university is fast with responding as well. My cohort's field experience was canceled 3 times no fault of the TCSPP, but due to political atmosphere in one country and covid-19 in 2 other countries. They were concerned with the safety...

This is one of the worst universities in North America. They lure students in claiming to provide financial assistance through graduate assistantships, but don't have any positions available. It happened to me and it was already to late to apply somewhere else. Tuition is way too expensive and everyone I know is in serious debt because of their loans from here. The President is not to be respected and has done some sketchy things to my classmates and professors don't seem to like her. The faculty... Read More
