SACRAMENTO, Calif.Aug. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The California School of Professional Psychology (CSPP) at Alliant International University's clinical psychology Psy.D. degree program at its Sacramento campus has just earned 10 years re-accreditation by the American Psychological Association (APA)— the longest period of re-accreditation offered by the association.

Each of CSPP's nine clinical psychology doctoral programs is accredited by the APA's Commission on Accreditation, which requires that the school provide data on time to completion, program costs, internships, attrition, and licensure among 48 standards of accreditation. Sacramento is the latest CSPP program to have received the maximum re-accreditation.

"Our Sacramento Psy.D. program has just received further recognition of the academic excellence and thorough preparation we offer our students, and we could not be more proud," said CSPP Dean Dalia Ducker, Ph.D. "CSPP was the first independent school dedicated to professional psychology, and this news highlights the fact that we are also the future of professional psychology as we continue our legacy of impact and celebrate CSPP's 50th anniversary."
