MACC or Clinical Psychology Program at Argosy University
November 13, 2014
This is for Atlanta only, so let me make that clear from the outset. I am attending the program now, only because state laws increased the requirement from 48 hours to 60 hours which means 4 more classes and about $10,000 plus books ($500). That being said, here is my breakdown of the materials, teachers, the institution itself, support and overall value. Materials: Marginal at best. Most teachers copy a boiler plate syllabus, often you ...

Just beginning on line with argosy-best so far

I have just started researching online master's programs and wow some of the recruiters can be too pushy. But not so with Argosy, that is why I am writing this review. So far no pushy recruiter calling five times a day plus email. Just a nice person who has answered my calls and emails as well as answered all of my questions. I am really considering this university.

Very responsive staff

Argosy, San Diego. No comments on the other sections yet as I am just starting. From the admissions counselor, financial aid, dean, and academic adviser - they have all been helpful throughout my application process and answered my questions. My start experience has been great as I am just beginning the program for the MACP (licensing requirements have been toughened in CA -LPCC -and it is now a 60-unit program- 3 years). I have researched ...

Counseling - Illinois

I love the program. It was a lot of hard work. I did half of the work online. The other half was in class nights and weekends. Yes, you fail if you don't do the work, don't show up, or don't post, but it's a masters degree. Just because it's online, doesn't mean it will be easy. The teachers were very helpful with assignments, but firm with deadlines. Each class was either 7.5 weeks or ...

Cannot recommend due to my experiences.

If I had known when I started the Counseling program at Argosy Seattle what I know now, I would have NEVER enrolled in this school. By the time you attend for 2 or 3 semesters and the apathy and passive-aggressiveness of the professors and staff becomes apparent, you have already invested so much time and money in the program that you feel like it's too late to start over elsewhere. I echo the other comments ...

Argosy University, Seattle, Washington
August 9, 2012
I attended Argosy/Seattle Campus for a few years and completed my Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling. I have learned so much from most professors, the ones that helped me through all the bumps and curves were Drs. Roedel and Moore. I feel it is important to have professors that would be willing to push and challenge students so that they can succeed in life. I owe my graditude to Dr. Bill Roedel and Dr. ...

Please Don't attempt to go to this school

I began my MA at Argosy 3 years ago and have been battling them ever since. The program is poorly run with know commonality between any of the professors in terms of what is being taught within the classroom settings. Teachers are allowed to pick and choose what they teacher depending on there own personal values not based on what should be known generally within the field. Diagnostic materials was taught poorly, teacher were late ...

Argosy Hawaii - as a grad student, my admission process was the worst and incompetent process I have ever been through in my entire academic career.  UNBELIEVEABLE!!

I am previously a student at Argosy University and I have been attending the school since July of last year.  I have been enrolled at Argosy as a part-time student (taking only 2 classes a semester).  Well I have found out that now instead of taking 2 classes they have enrolled me for four classes and I specifically told them that I was not able to take all of those classes.  They told me that I am still considered to be fulltime, I just would not have any breaks in between classes unless I request for one.  Don't get me wrong, I have enjoyed the time that I spent here at Argosy but I refused to be pressured into taking 4 classes per semester with each class being 8 weeks.  I don't know about this school anymore and I am anticipating withdrawing this week.  For anyone that is wanting to attend this school, make sure you do research about the number of classes that you are scheduled to take before they just give you something.

I love Argosy's MACP program. I attended both the Phoenix and OC campuses. The teachers are great, and I was placed at one of the top practicum sites in Los Angeles, for $30,000 (which is comparable to any other private, graduate program or less) a's such a wonderful experience, and I'm so glad I have chosen this school.

Your review was the most positive I read, could you continue to post your experience each class you complete until you graduate because I thought about attending this school, but I scared because of all the reviews to apply for this school now.  I was going to do their MFT program, but I am concerned.

This school is totally unethical!! They are just a big f*ing business, trying to grow and grow.  Their quality is sh*t.  They act so business-like and professional. But that is all they do and are.  A business! People in suits, working at their desk -- ready to screw over anyone for a bunch of $money$ and a half-ass education.  

If you need any information, once you have paid them money, they give you the run-around.  But if they think that you owe them money (even when it's a mistake), they will call you immediately and harrass you  with debt collectors.

I am so frustrated.  This school needs to be sued.  It is reminding me of all the executive scams that have been reported in wall street. I don't think that this school has been as succesfull as those wall street brokers, but if they could they would! Totally unethical and it makes me sick.  It give education a horrible name.

I had a 4.0 GPA going into my last year as a graduate student at Argosy University, at a California campus.  With unsubstantiated causes Argosy staff and administration kept me from proceeding, keeping me from getting my degree,  and leaving me with $30,000 of student loan debt.  

I have been made aware that this has happened to other Argosy students.  If you feel that you have been treated unjustly by Argosy University, please contact me.

I thought I had done a good search of all reviews of Argosy, but I did not, I am really sorry I have had any contact with this school.  I plan on transfering only having completed four course, two of which were on line and good.  The classes on campus were horrible, the instructors defensive and negative against any other previous medical field of expertise, in fact down right hostle.  I had wanted to pursue my Master's in MHC but will transfer to another university, one where the counselors have time to help students, instructors are professional and respectful of their students.  And no I am not a "cry baby", as I am a US Armed Forces VET, it is just that I know a total waste of educational time when it is presented.  Think long and hard before you consider this school.  Best wishes. is not affiliated with Argosy University in any way.
