non-licensure for ALL online programs

As an older student, I am going to be truthful here; I had one very bad experience with an instructor who would not communicate in a timely manner for a project, this caused delays and then I could not finish it on time and she would not give me more time even though it was in her discretion to do so, right in the middle of me travelling to see my son graduate from basic ...

How is this place getting APA accredited? Ugh!
September 20, 2014
Argosy was such an awful experience, which was mostly due to the professors who were obviously there to collect a part time job paycheck and that was it. One professor sent out a bizarre rambling email that he was high on painkillers among other ramblings. There was no support and no mentoring. It was such a negative experience compared to my undergrad experience. I'd never consider Argosy for a doctoral program. Among the policies on ...

Critical thinkers only apply

I already had a graduate degree before I enrolled in the MAFP program. I wanted to further my knowledge. If you do your research, an MA in Forensic Psychology does little but enhance your credentials for a job you may already have in the field. This can mean understanding the interaction of psychology and the law and legal precedents that impact the field. This said I left the program with an intense understanding of the ...

Use As A Last Resort Only
December 31, 2012
I have no doubt this school, like many, tracks negative online reviews of their programs and attempts to identify the student if still enrolled-the agenda of which is to harm the student, not address the issues the student has. Because of that I am unwilling to provide specifics, but my experience with this school has so far been that it should be an absolute last resort for anyone seeking a degree in any of their ...

Angry Student
December 15, 2012
This school took money from my VA benefits and refuses to apply them to my account even with proof they were paid! The instructors are unprofessional; they will insult and harass you. If you ask them for help be prepared to be docked on points on ALL of your assignments! I graduated my last 2 schools with honors and know how much work and applying yourself goes into good grades. If you report the instructors, ...

Graduated 2012 Not Supported but Challenged
November 4, 2012
I have graduated and while I understand it is a terminal degree with very little in the way of real world meaning. I do believe that you get out of it what you put into it. I didn't do it for licensure, I did it to improve my understanding in a variety of areas. While the education was expensive, there are no programs like this in Kansas so I didn't have a lot of choice. ...

Huge Deception
August 17, 2012
I have an MA in Forensic Psychology from this school. I graduated with a 4.0. I was one of the few who actually researched the assignments, did not plagiarize, and traveled to meet with the various assigned persons. When I was unable to find a job, and head over heels in debt, I finally learned the facts. There is no recognized degree in Psychology at the masters level. A forensic degree is generally attained after ...

I have been defending AU since I enrolled in the MA in Forensic Psych. But, I have to say that after the comp exam experience, I am FINISHED with this school. 

First, the exam is tough, it is a case study and there is nothing easy about it. However, I had a 3.97 GPA throughout the program and I was confident in taking the exam. 

I was surprised when I failed the exam. They give you a brief outline of what you did not do such as, 

"The student addresses cultural concerns but does not discuss assessment of substance abuse specifically."

OK, so I go over the exam feedback and talk to a mentor and get ready to retake the exam. The problem, is that you never get to "talk" to anyone. It is all via email. Also, you have no one to go over the problems with your exam. You are told to fix the issues, but never how to fix the issues or really what the issues are. Someone will give you a little mini exam to look over and take to "help" with what is included in the exam parts.

I get a 100% on the mini exam and I retake the exam. Funny thing happened. The parts I got correct before (relating to cases and laws) I got wrong this time!!??? How can a case be correct one time, but not the second time? 

Also, on the parts I got partly correct before, I added what they said was missing, and now there is something else missing that they did not tell me about before!!?? This is why there is an issue. No one will go over the exams to point out issues. No one will help you fix the problems on what you did wrong.

I am now about to finish my MSCJ at a tier one university and will start my PhD in the summer. 

My advise, stay away from ARGOSY! is not affiliated with Argosy University in any way.
