A maximum of 10 graduate level courses (30 semester credit hours) from other academic institutions may be transferred into the PsyD Clinical Psychology degree program at the Illinois School of Professional Psychology at Argosy Univeristy, Schaumburg. ISPP at Argosy University at Schaumburg does not automatically transfer credit from graduate coursework taken at other institutions. Students who have taken graduate courses elsewhere may petition to have these courses apply toward a transfer of courses in the curriculum. Implications of entering the program with credit for prior graduate work for time to completion vary by student.

Program Costs

Program costs are charged per credit hour. Not all fees are applied each semester which will result in some fluctuation in cost. The number of credits indicated is based on full time status. Each student’s cost structure may vary depending on the number of credits taken per semester.

Licensure

Consistent with the Commission on Accreditation’s implementing regulations, licensure rates are calculated using the number of students with known licensure over the total number of graduates. All students whose licensure status is unknown are counted as "unlicensed." Therefore the actual licensure rate of graduates may be higher than the number from the APA/COA formula.

Outcome 2008 - 2018
Total number of program graduates (doctoral degrees conferred on transcript) between 2 and 10 years ago 269
The number of these graduates (between 2 and 10 years ago) who became licensed psychologists in the past 10 years 187
Licensure percentage 70%
