University of the Rockies / Not accredited as promised
Rockies.edu or University of the Rockies, or The Colorado School of Professional Psychology or formally known as the Chapman College, Colorado Springs Campus. This college is not accredited for the doctorate of clinical psychology PsyD program with APA, and will not become accredited according to the administration. Several key staff have quit, resigned or have been asked to leave for their inability to "fall in line" with parent companies desire to turn the campus into a degree mill full of lack-luster psychological/business degrees with no American Psychological Association accreditation. Call and check other programs in the State and they will confirm this. Call the University of the Rockies and the person on the other end of the phone has only been in that position for probably a whole month! Rock On Rockies. Oh best yet! Check out the new 2009 catalog featuring a snow covered campus in-front of the Swiss Alps. The picture failed to include the real campus, which shares its building with Caravel Cruise Lines, and an abandoned warehouse district. The good news is the students are a good group, a few dedicated professors remain on the physical campus. If you want a non-clinical degree the schools new format might be just the best thing if you need to beef up for a promotion. However, the clinical degree program is not on par with any of the State universities or colleges. Check the Better Business Bureau and the Colorado State Civil Rights or DORA to see further comments on this University from several staff, students (past and present). Before you invest make sure the school is not in litigation for a class action lawsuit. Good luck.
