3 College Junior

Academics: The registration and enrollment is easy, but the quality of professors is somewhat questionable. Many classes are online, and the only workload is to write a weekly summary of the chapters you've read. There are a few classes that prepare students for their field, but the quality is not worth the tuition for some classes.

3 College Junior

Computers: There is some student access to a computer, but they are usually full. Students mostly bring their own computers, and are allowed access to a good wireless network.

2 College Junior

Parking: The school's location in a tourist area does not allow for an ease of parking. The parking is garage only, and is very expensive.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The school consists of one main building in a heavy tourist area. Dangerous situations don't occur at the school, but could occur in the crowds outside of the school. The school requires students to have outside health insurance, but does not have a student health service.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are very few men in my cohort/program. The majority of them are in the Marriage Family Therapy M.A. program and Counseling program. I do not have any classes with them and rarely cross paths with them. Pickens is slims.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school/admission process is great and was smooth sailing however, my getting here from the state of Missouri to the state of California has been one disaster after another from broken down vehicle, having to rent a U-Haul to tow my car, with nothing in the U-Haul, my personal belongings are still in Missouri because it cost me 1500$ of extra expenses. But the school is great, I live across the street so I walk, its in a nice neighborhood, small classes, professors are very educated and experienced, I am apart of the SGA Student Government association, I work with other veterans to promote mental health in the military and veteran care. If you take out all the rough roads I've taken to get here to be apart of this program that focuses on my Passion of Clinical Forensic Psychology I would truck across the country and move from my family all over again!

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: We do not have dining we have vending machine and pop/water machine

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Our security comes from the company below us. However, we are not their primary focus the public broad casting building/floor is. The students are pretty much on their own with no real security to speak of

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The school focuses on Ethics, professionalism, integrity. They are strict on plagiarism, professionalism and maintain ethics and other professional qualities in the class room as well as when a student is at a practicum or internship.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The facility is on one floor of a building, the parking is great, right of the express way, I live across the street so I can walk to work (student fed work study) and to classes. It has a decent kitchen/break room, the classes are equipped with SMART board technology and there is sufficient computer lap always available and never full. Professors have reasonable office hours but make themselves available phone, email or text. The SGA-Student government is working hard to get more students involve and I enjoy being a part of that. We also have gotten our veteran's together for support of mental health in the military. It has been very enjoyable attending Alliant International University at Sacramento so far.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I have yet to attend an event, party or nightlife. Myself and other students are very school focused and I am unaware of any parties or helpful transportation.

5 College Freshman

Weather: Living in Sacramento California the worst I've encountered is chilliness and rain and maybe the combo of both. Mainly a comfortable climate

College Freshman

Drug Safety: To my knowledge because all students working in the practicum must be drug free there are little to no students participating in drugs. Alcohol would be more likely but it isn't aloud on campus. So the students would have to drink at home our at an establishment that serves alcohol.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid normally goes smoothly if you have enough funds coming to you. This is the first year that I didn't have enough funds and have to pay out of pocket...Hence, looking for scholarships.

3 College Freshman

Majors: You must be accepted to the program, your basic essay, transcripts, letter of recommendations for entry. Maintaining progress and comprehension in your field and studies is the ultimate deciding factor. At the end of each year the students have comprehensive exams. This program has a normal process. My tip would be make sure you have someone proof read your essay, send ALL transcripts and me precise and accurate on your application as possible as well as have 2-3 letters of recommendations from prior professors and supervisors.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The over all program is great. However, we just got notice that the university is no longer accepting applicants and/or new students in the Forensic Filed at this location because of issues with gaining APA accreditation. My career goal focus is to work in Corrections as a Forensic Psychologist so this decision doesn't effect me unless I wanted to practice outside the Forensic realm.

3 College Freshman

Computers: There is only one computer lab but most students use there own personal laptops in class. The facilities are up to date they school offers free wifi, the speed of the network is average to above average. Printing available for 10 cents a page and 40 for color which I feel could be cheaper but it is understandable.

College Freshman

Athletics: This is a graduate/education focused University. We do not have sport/athletics for the students.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Being in the Clinical Forensic Program is great. The classes are small so you get all the attention you may need from the Professors. The professors are very experienced in their field and very knowledgeable. The work load is tough but it is created in order to make this 6 year program a 4 year program so students get out in the field after their first semester of classes and continue on until they graduate. There is also a great placement program for practicums as well as internships. Each student is assigned a doctoral chair when working on there dissertation as well as a co-chair.

College Freshman

Transportation: There are no extra forms of transportation specifically for this university. However, taxis, buses and the light rails are convenient if you do not mind walking a bit. But most if not all people have a vehicle or a ride of some kind.

College Freshman

Greek Life: We do not have Greek organizations here. But the organizations within the community for student career focus is great. APA, Psychology and Forensic Psychology students have many choices. As well as I MERIT with focuses on cultural diversity and education and Student Government.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Our small campus is very diverse. Being an International Student our school is very diverse in race, economic background, religion and sexual orientation. We have a staff and student organization that focuses on promotion diversity as well as cultural awareness.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: We do not have on campus housing here in Sacramento. My self and a few others do live in a gated community across the road. It is nice. But our location/school is very small and doesn't offer housing. Which I believe brings up the cost of living for many students who do not live close by in order to get cheaper rent.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: If you want to, okay. If not, that's okay too

5 College Junior

Nightlife: San Francisco is the Best city in the US. You will never have a bad time here. It's a bit expensive sometimes. However, there are so many low cost or free events happening that you'll never be bored.
