Argosy University Update

5/28/19: MPA’s Argosy Psychology Student Support Fund through GoFundMe raised over $7,400. We were able to provide funds to 25 students experiencing financial hardships due to the situation. We greatly appreciate all the support and contributions we received!

The closing of Argosy University has left several of our future psychology colleagues in dire financial straits.  As many of you may have heard, students did not receive their federal loans this semester. MPA has established a GoFundMe page in an effort to collect funds for these students.

The National Register has set up a system by which Argosy students and alumni can bank, at no charge, official and unofficial academic material with the National Register. For additional information, please go to the National Register Website.
