CPA Statement: Argosy University

"We at CPA are aware of the far reaching implications that the recent closure of Argosy University can and will have on Colorado psychologists who received their training from this institution, as well as for the current students who are left to fend for themselves as Argosy dissolves. This closure is affecting up to 9,600 students, and many of our nation’s legislators are aware of the issue and confronting the Department of Education and demanding action in the name of those affected. Last Tuesday, on 3/12, CPA President-elect Dr. Rick Ginsberg, CPA Executive Director Kim Gill, and myself personally handed a letter to each of Colorado’s representatives explaining how the closure of Argosy University is not only deeply disruptive to the lives of these students, but also, will have a negative impact on workforce development, and on our ability to serve the behavioral health needs of our country moving forward. Attached is a link to a letter that you can send to Secretary Betsy DeVos in support of those who are affected by this closure, https://www.apa.org/advocacy/higher-education/devos-letter.pdf. CPA will also be providing resources as they become available and will share in-the-moment information as we become aware of it."

The American Psychological Association is offering this hour-long webinar on records and credentials banking to Argosy University's psychology graduate students and alumni in light of the school's closure. APA notes that submitting documentation about your internship, doctoral degree, postdoc and other credentials to a central repository for verification and storage can offer peace of mind as well as convenience.

The webinar will feature presentations on the mechanics of banking, and an extensive Q&A period with two panelists: Dr. Mariann Burnetti-Atwell, the CEO of the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards, and Dr. Morgan Sammons, the CEO of the National Register of Health Service Psychologists. Both organizations offer banking free of charge to AU students and alums. The webinar will be hosted by Dr. Eddy Ameen, associate executive director of APA's Early Career and Graduate Student Affairs. Dr. Ameen will provide some introductory information about APA's efforts to support members of the AU community and remind attendees about the updated resources at www.apa.org/apags/argosy

Please note that while this presentation is exclusively on banking credentials and other records, if you have ideas for additional AU-related webinars that you'd like to see from APA, please share those when you register.
