    Am learning a lot

    The Chicago School of Professional Psychology has a very supportive academic staff, devoted to professional and academic support through a multitude of attendance options (i.e. campus, online, blended). I don't feel as though they are as 'rigorous' as my previous colleges, but this is also great because I have a very busy schedule and for that it also works very well.

    Self-Starters, Organized.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The campus in Irvine is in a business center.

    Tips for prospective students

    The classes are small and intimate. It is very self-driven, it is for the self-starter.

    I enjoy the connivence of class times and sizes.

    Not worth the money!

    Academic Rigor

    I felt that many classes were just a joke and easier than my undergraduate courses.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't go here!

    In three sentences

    I actually attended the online/blended program. This place is overpriced and has a poor faculty/student connection. It's not worth the money or time.

    I am a full time Correctional Officer. I work a twelve hour night shift at a maximum security prison. Completing a master's degree would be nearly impossible if I did not have the flexibility offered by The Chicago School of Professional Psychology online program. I think the online program is perfect for any working person looking to further their education.

    What to do for fun

    Although I am not living on campus (sadly, not even in the state), I am originally from Chicago and I advise everyone to experience all of the great food options. There is nothing that can compare to the amazing food options available on every corner. Do not be afraid to visit the little hotdog stand! If you find yourself seeking entertainment, take a walk to Navy Pier. The options offered at Navy Pier are endless, not to mention the view is beautiful.

    Food and Dining

    I am completing an online program and I can not assist on evaluating food and dining.

    Dorm Life

    I am completing an online program and I can not assist on evaluating dorm life.

    Academic Rigor

    The Chicago School of Professional Psychology offers a very unique curriculum. The courses appear as if they were tailored for you as an individual. They will challenge you and help you advance in your area of study.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are planning on continuing your education after your Bachelor's Degree, I recommend getting letters of recommendation from professors as you go along in your undergraduate studies. This way you are fresh in your professors mind, and it helps to eliminate any type of awkwardness you may feel. Being prepared with letters of recommendation can help you in many ways in obtaining your career goals.

    In three sentences

    The Chicago School of Professional Psychology offers a very unique and flexible online program in Forensic Psychology that is convenient for full time working adults. The staff is extremely helpful and eager to help work around your busy schedule. This school makes an effort to accommodate students based on their needs.

    I cannot comment on this, as I am an online-student. However, the emergency plan for TCSPP has been well-communicated through student e-mails.

    Online programs are great for those who are active duty military, those with a full-time job or busy family, or students who prefer to work at their own pace.

    Tips for prospective students

    Research your school, its accredidation, and read about the staff and faculty. Also research plenty of scholarships and financial aid to see what you qualify for.

    In three sentences

    TCSPP is a wonderful school with a wide spectrum of professors with varying educations and work experience. The level of professionalism and communication makes attending this school easy and motivating. As an online student, eCollege has been a wonderful tool that has been improved over my years at TCSPP and continues to strive for excellence!

    Campus Safety

    I feel safe around this campus.

    Great for these types of students

    Shy students, Online students, students with children, students who are unemployed currently, students with part-time jobs, anyone.

    Bang for the buck

    It's good, they give you the best education and pay attention to you as long as you apply yourself to the classroom.

    What to do for fun

    There's definitely a lot to do for fun around here. You can take extra classes of things that interest you if you find that you have a lot of time on your hands. There are great people all around you to talk to, and everyone's quite nice.

    Food and Dining

    I wouldn't know, I didn't spend too much time in the school as I used to take mostly online classes. But I've seen a few nice looking restaurants around campus.

    Dorm Life

    Most of my classes were online, and I have my own apartment but I've heard from my friends and other students that dorm life is pretty good to them and they enjoy it.

    Academic Rigor

    You'll find that you get a lot of help from your counselors, and tutors in this school, and there is no reason to fail should you have the courage to ask for help from the people around you. There is no need to stress as well, as long as you know to always prepare yourself the night before school.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't take on more than what you can handle, and self-discipline is the key! Do not fail because you rather pay too much attention to your phone. Online classes are great if you know how to put yourself into focus, and you can choose instead to go to the classes that you really need to be present for. It's helped me a lot in college, to know how to make sacrifices, and do what I need to do instead of what I want to do.

    In three sentences

    You can get a high quality education from this school. Classes and people are quite fun and decent. Teachers care about your education, and help you out.

    Campus Safety

    I never had an issue with safety or anything while I stayed here.

    Clubs and Activities

    I didn't really join any kinds of clubs because I was so busy with my school work, but it seems like they have a lot going on here.

    Bang for the buck

    Prices for schooling were average, but the learning was great so I'd say it was definitely worth the money.

    Food and Dining

    Food is good for the most part. I'm not a picky eater.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is as about as good as dorm life gets. Still I enjoyed it but if you are not a people person you might want to life off campus.

    Tips for prospective students

    Ask for help if you need it the school staff is there to help you succeed.

    In three sentences

    A very well done school that I attended last year. Campus is great and the teachers I had were very easy to work with. Overall I had a pretty good experience here and would recommend it to others who are learning about or want to look into learning about Psychology.
