    “I had a wonderful experience and loved the flexibility of the program. I could go at my own pace, was able to work ahead when I needed to, and to take extra time when I needed to. The faculty mentors were fantastic and very helpful and inspiring. I feel like I got an excellent education for an affordable price.”

    “Without the flexibility of start dates, online classes and distance learning, I would not have been able to achieve this dream! The payment plan was extremely helpful and it allowed me to work but also to balance work with school. I don't think I would have completed my PsyD if it wasn't for CalSouthern.”
