Alliant International University trains students to solve real-world problems

Alliant International University prepares students for professional careers of service and leadership and promotes the discovery and application of knowledge to improve the lives of people in diverse cultures and communities around the world.

Alliant International University, 1000 S. Fremont Ave., Bldg. 5, Alhambra, is a private, independent university offering graduate study in psychologyeducation, business and managementlaw and forensic studies, and bachelor’s degree programs in several fields. Alliant's schools specialize in preparing students to enter professions that require both advanced knowledge and highly specialized skills.

Degree programs emphasize the practical application of theory and research, and most of those programs provide opportunities for students to participate in placements, practica, and internships in the field during their course of study.

Alliant is committed to preparing professionals who are able not only to practice in the profession for which they are trained, but who also want to make positive contributions to their communities. Alliant’s programs train students to solve real-world significant problems in a diverse and increasingly global world. 

One of the University’s key beliefs is that students benefit from an education relevant to current community issues and based on a combination of academic theory in the classroom and hands-on experience in the field. This practical integration of theory and practice helps Alliant students to be innovative change agents solving the real-world issues of today’s diverse, global society.

Alliant provides a professional school environment — students learn from a faculty of seasoned working professionals and most receive practical training while still in school through a combination of internships, practica, consulting, and community service projects.

Alliant has been named a top school in military advanced education, a military friendly school, and a top producer of minority degrees. The California School of Professional Psychology is also widely credited with producing a majority of the practicing clinical psychologists in the state of California.

Alliant is accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC) and encompasses a family of five schools with six California campuses, three international locations and a student body of approximately 3,000, coming from 49 states and 75 countries.

Alliant receives its name from the merger of three legacy institutions: San Francisco Law School founded in 1909, United States International University (USIU) founded in 1927, and California School of Professional Psychology (CSPP) founded in 1969. In 2001, USIU and CSPP merged forming Alliant with San Francisco Law School joining in 2010.

At Alliant, success is measured not only in terms of the number of degrees awarded and the number of academic papers published but also by the impact students and graduates make in the communities in which they work. The 45,000+ alumni contribute daily to diverse communities around the world.

Field placements, practica, and internships are often aimed at benefiting underserved communities. Students frequently engage in community-based projects that address real needs and issues in their surrounding communities. Alliant students contribute more than one million hours of community service each year as part of their professional education.
