Updated student insurance language in the Expenses and Financial Aid  section.

All international students attending Alliant International University are required to obtain health insurance coverage during their tenure at Alliant. To fulfill this health insurance requirement, students must purchase a health insurance policy that meets all US Immigration insurance requirements.  All new, incoming international students must demonstrate coverage on or before their arrival, with their own medical insurance coverage.  If students fail to demonstrate coverage upon their arrival, they will be required to show proof of coverage before registering for classes. F-1 and J-1 students are expected to communicate their intentions to the Office of International Students and Scholars on or before their arrival. All coverage choices for continuing international students must be evaluated on a yearly basis, consistent with Alliant University’s academic year period. All international students must show proof of compliant health insurance coverage at the start of each academic year. (or their first semester at Alliant if starting during an alternate semester or term). Without showing proof of health insurance each year, students will not be permitted to register for courses.

Students must choose health insurance that meets the provisions below:

a. Effective throughout the semester and renewable for continuous coverage
b. Minimum dollar coverage of $100,000 per illness or injury
c. Include outpatient care (doctor visits, outpatient surgery, etc.)
d. Include hospitalization
e. Repatriation for at least $25,000
f. Medical evacuation for at least $50,000
g. Cost of deductible, if any, does not exceed $500 per accident or illness

Please direct any questions you may have regarding health insurance coverage to your campus DSO or Student Advisor.

Updated Immunization policy in the Admissions and Registration  section to reflect Alliant no longer offering on-campus housing.

Immunizations

The University is committed to protecting the health and well-being of all our students. All students must meet a specific immunization requirement. If you have graduated from a California public high school, you may have already met this requirement. To meet this requirement, you may bring a completed immunization record form or send medical documentation or laboratory evidence as proof of immunity to the Director of Campus Services (to the Health Center for San Diego) after admission to the University. In addition to the immunizations required for all students, in order to reside in an on-campus housing facility students must have an immunization for Neisseria Meningitis.

Update

Updated Goals for the Clinical Psychology: PhD, Los Angeles  program.

Updated Field Training for the Clinical Psychology: PhD, Los Angeles  program from:

At the predoctoral stage, students’ professional development occurs within the context of both formal coursework and clinical training experiences supervised by faculty and professionals in the field. Students develop and acquire clinical skills through professional training experiences in a variety of mental health service settings in the community. Such supervised professional training experiences include practica and internships..

Each student works with a professional field training liaison who meets regularly with the student to develop and implement an individualized training plan designed to assure (a) that the student receives a broad base of clinical experiences with a variety of clientele and professional role models and (b) that professional training experiences are chosen with due consideration of the student’s level of skill and longer-term professional goals.

In the second, third and fourth years of the program, Clinical PhD students are required to have  a practicum experience in a mental health setting. Students begin to assume clinical responsibility for assessment and intervention while being closely supervised at a level appropriate to their training and abilities. This clinical professional training experience varies with respect to the nature of clients served and the mental health setting in which the student serves, as well as with individual students’ skill levels, professional interests, and training needs. The total number of minimum required practicum hours per year is 800. Students typically receive a minimum of 2400 hours of clinical training prior to internship.

At the practicum level, students receive training in agencies that are formally affiliated with the school. All practicum training programs are carefully reviewed and monitored on an ongoing basis to assure consistent and high quality training. After completion of the three practica, students are required to apply competitively for an APA internship, participating in the APA/APPIC match process If a student does not obtain an APA internship after the initial application process, the student may reapply for an APA internship or pursue two half-time internships in consecutive years, the latter in the CAPIC match processes.

Face to face individual supervision provided by a licensed supervisor is required on a weekly basis.  Should a student fail to attend weekly supervision it is expected that the supervisor will notify the Supervisory Faculty Liaison assigned to the site. In addition, students receive evaluations from supervisors twice a year.

The majority of affiliated practicum training sites exist within a 40-mile radius of the campus. Students are encouraged to make full-time internship applications throughout the country. Currently, all APA internships and some CAPIC internships offer a stipend. The majority of half-time internships and virtually all practica do not offer stipends. Students should not count on training stipends as a means of financing their education.

Degree Completion Date for Psychology Licensure

The degree completion date for purposes of the California Board of Psychology (BOP) eligibility for postdoctoral internship hours is the date on which all academic requirements have been completed (e.g., coursework, internship, psychotherapy and doctoral dissertation or project). Doctoral students normally begin accumulating post-doctoral hours from the date all academic requirements are completed.
