The Chicago School of Professional Psychology (TCSPP) a nonprofit university, and one of the leading institutions devoted to psychology, and related behavioral and health sciences, and Waubonsee Community College (WCC) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), which allows all active Waubonsee students who meet admissions requirements to transfer to The Chicago School’s online Bachelor of Arts in Psychology Completion Program. Eligible Waubonsee students transferring to The Chicago School are guaranteed general admission and will receive a 10 percent tuition discount. This is The Chicago School’s first transfer agreement with a community college in Illinois.

“We partnered with Waubonsee because its mission and vision align with ours,” said TCSPP President Michele Nealon-Woods, Psy.D. “Both our institutions strive to offer students a top-notch education, one that will help them be successful in today’s high-pressured, extremely competitive world. With its excellent academic programs and the value it places on diversity and accessibility, WCC makes a perfect partner.”

“We are dedicated to helping our students not only complete their associate degrees but also to transition to a four-year program,” said Waubonsee President Dr. Christine Sobek. “Psychology continues to be a very popular undergraduate major, so we’re excited to enter into this new agreement with an institution like The Chicago School.”

Waubonsee Community College students who transfer to The Chicago School can receive up to 78 transfers of credit from The Chicago School. Students must have completed a minimum of 60 transferable semester units, or possess a conferred Associate of Arts or Science degree in a traditional academic area of study from a regionally accredited college or university, or possess a conferred Associate in Applied Science Degree in Human Services from Waubonsee.

The MOU between The Chicago School of Professional Psychology and Waubonsee Community College will terminate in August 2017, but may be extended if agreed upon by both institutions.
