MA in Counseling - 7/14/2017
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018
"Where to start. This "school" is basically just another EDMC college that overcharges and sells you on lies, such as telling me they were fully accredited when they have no accreditation that mean anything. Over the last 3 years I have been lied to, over charged, and threatened when I asked about withdrawing from the program. Through all their BS I was able to finish their program with only my internships to go before graduating. Then they refused to OK an internship sites, stating that they do not meet the CACREP guidelines for internship places. The issue is that all the local schools, some of which are very large, well-known, and respected universities, send interns to these places all the time and those intern go on to be licenced counselors. This school is simply a business that steals from people who are trying to further their education. A quick google search of argosy university lawsuit will reveal all the information I wish I had before enrolling there. Avoid this place at all costs."

"I was in the process of enrolling into Argosy's Master in Counseling Washington DC program and, after immediate acceptance, decided to do more research about this school with no apparent admission criteria. Got your BA/BS? Congratulations, you've been accepted. Another red flag was inability to review department's faculty and get an idea of who I would be learning from in the next 2 years. Also, the price of "education" was crazy steep. Basically, the only reason I was considering Argosy is because it well aligned with my vocational demands and Master in Counseling program on this particular campus is CACREP accredited, which is pretty much a must for those wanting to seek LPC licensure. So Argosy does have that going for itself, but so do a lot of other non-profit schools at a much cheaper price. Anyways, after thorough research about this school and for-profits in general, I withdrew my application and never looked back. Instead, I am attending a reputable, non-profit, accredited mortar & brick university this fall and don't have to worry if my future employees will question the validity of my degree. I would really encourage everyone to THOROUGHLY RESEARCH FOR-PROFIT SCHOOLS before proceeding. Even with accreditation, I don't think it's worth it. Personally, I really don't want to financially support this awful business that's robbed so many people of their money with nothing to show for it. Either way, best of luck to all. And remember, just do your research and educate yourself."

Guidance Counselor in NC - 9/13/2014
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2008
"I really enjoyed the classes at Argosy and was very happy that I was able to complete my internship at a school over the summer as I worked at a Department of Defense school in Germany at the time and could not do the internship during the regular school year. Argosy instructors were extremely supportive and former counselors who gave me real world skills I could use immediately when I eventually became a guidance counselor."
