History and Philosophy


Argosy University (the “University”) was formed in September 2001 by the merging of three separate academic institutions—the American Schools of Professional Psychology, the University of Sarasota, and the Medical Institute of Minnesota—and as a result offers professional programs at the undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate levels in behavioral sciences, business, education, and allied healthcare.

Argosy University’s programs in psychology, the behavioral sciences, and health sciences emphasize a practical approach built on a background in theory. The programs were formed following a movement begun in the early 1970s that called for a professional degree in clinical psychology emphasizing practical training and application of theory and research rather than the research-oriented approach of the traditional PhD degree program. This effort ultimately led to the creation of the Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) degree. Argosy University’s original campus, the Illinois School of Professional Psychology, Chicago, began granting the PsyD degree in 1979 and received candidacy status with the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA) in that same year. Accreditation was received in 1981. Because of demand, additional campuses were opened and new programs were added to complement and expand upon the PsyD in Clinical Psychology degree program.

Argosy University’s programs in business and education also  are designed to provide students with a solid practical and theoretical foundation. These programs, which for more than 30 years were offered at the University of Sarasota (formerly Laurence University), had a specific focus of providing educational opportunities at the graduate level to working adults without requiring them to compromise their professional or personal lives. This was accomplished through a unique delivery format involving a mix of distance learning and brief, intensive on-campus study periods. In 1976, the state of Florida granted licensure to the University to offer the Doctor of Education (EdD) degree programs. In 1990, Argosy University was accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) to offer master’s and doctoral degrees, which was eventually expanded to include bachelor’s degree completion programs. The institution also found strong demand for its programs and delivery methods, adding new campuses and new programs, widening the opportunities for working professionals interested in pursuing post-secondary education.

Argosy University’s programs in allied healthcare were established in 1961, beginning with a certificate-level medical laboratory technician program. The Medical Institute of Minnesota, originally known as Park Medical Institute, was founded to provide skilled allied healthcare personnel to hospitals and clinics. In 1963, the school officially became the Medical Institute of Minnesota. In 1970, the Medical Institute of Minnesota was authorized by the state of Minnesota to grant an Associate of Science terminal degree. In 1971, the Medical Institute of Minnesota entered into a collaborative agreement with the University of Minnesota, General College, which agreed to grant associate’s degrees to students who had earned a certificate from the Medical Institute of Minnesota and had satisfied the degree requirements of the General College. New programs were added, and the Medical Institute of Minnesota began offering eight programs in the allied health fields, including veterinary technology, dental hygiene, and medical laboratory technology. In 1980, the school applied for and was granted initial institutional accreditation with the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES). With the merger in 2001, the school became Argosy University, Twin Cities. All allied health programs are at the associate’s degree level, granting either as the Associate of Applied Science (AAS) or the Associate of Science (AS) degree.

September 2011 Argosy University received notice from the U.S. Department of Education (USDE) that its institutional accreditor of record has been changed from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association to the Commission on Senior Colleges of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

Argosy University Administration


The authority to administer Argosy University has been delegated by the board of trustees to the professional staff of academic administrators that Argosy University has retained for that purpose.

Changing programs, taking remedial courses, taking time off from coursework, registering for fewer hours or unsuccessful attempts at course completion will increase the total length of the program and overall cost of education from what is disclosed. Transfer credits awarded toward your program will likely decrease the overall length and cost of education.

1Technology Fee:  $15.00 per credit hour.

2Not all courses include a Digital Textbook.  Courses that include a Digital Textbook will be noted in the registration material and the Digital Textbook will be charged in addition to tuition unless the student chooses to opt out.  The Digital Textbook costs are $15.00 per course (undergraduate), $85.00 per course (Master’s) and $95.00 per course (doctoral).  Students that do not opt out will not need to purchase textbooks for courses using a Digital Textbook. The purchase of the Digital Textbook is not refundable.  Students that do opt out will be issued a credit to the student account for the cost of the book and will be responsible for purchasing the required textbook.  If a course does not use a Digital Textbook, the student is responsible for purchasing the required textbook.

3Based on the current credit hour rate. Total cost will increase per credit hour tuition and other cost increase.  Estimated Total Cost includes a Graduation Fee of $175.00 (charged one time at the end of the program), a Student Activity Fee of $25/ Graduate student and $12/Undergraduate student (charged each academic year and assessed in the Fall Semester), and program specified fees.

I understand that total program cost may be impacted by approved transfer credits or needed prerequisite coursework. Any changes to tuition and fees will be published to students as they are made.  Please refer to Academic Catalog Tuition and Fee Schedule for residency cancellation fees and penalties.

The current STRF charge is $0.00

The STRF rate is subject to change based upon the balance in the STRF account. Statute requires the Bureau begin collecting if the balance falls below $20 million ($20,000,000.00) and caps the account at $25 million ($25,000,000.00). Please see the office of admissions for questions regarding the assessment of the STRF fee. Because this institution participates in the STRF, students who are otherwise eligible are protected by STRF regardless of whether the fee is assessed. STRF fees are currently a one-time non-refundable charge of $0.00 per $1,000 of institutional charges, rounded to the nearest thousand dollars; but this amount is subject to change.

The State of California established the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) to relieve or mitigate economic loss suffered by a student in an educational program at a qualifying institution, who is or was a California resident while enrolled, or was enrolled in a residency program, if the student enrolled in the institution, prepaid tuition, and suffered an economic loss.  Unless relived of the obligation to do so, you must pay the state-imposed assessment for the Fund STRF, or it must be paid on your behalf, if you are a student in an educational program, who is a California resident, or are enrolled in a residency program, and prepay all or part of your tuition.

You are not eligible for protection from the STRF and you are not required to pay the STRF assessment, if you are not a California resident, or are not enrolled in a residency program.

It is important that you keep copies of your enrollment agreement, financial aid documents, receipts, or any other information that documents the amount paid to the school.  Questions regarding the STRF may be directed to the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education, 2535 Capitol Oaks Drive, Suite 400, Sacramento, CA 95833, (916) 431-6959 or (888) 370-7589.

To be eligible for STRF, you must be a California resident or enrolled in a residency program, prepaid tuition, paid or deemed to have paid the STRF assessment, and suffered an economic loss as a result of any of the following:

  1. The institution, a location of the institution, or an educational program offered by the institution was closed or discontinued, and you did not choose to participate in a teach-out plan approved by the Bureau or did not complete a chosen teach-out plan approved by the Bureau.
  2. You were enrolled at an institution or a location of the institution within the 120 day period before the closure of the institution or location of the institution, or were enrolled in an educational program within the 120 day period before the program was discontinued.
  3. You were enrolled at an institution or a location of the institution more than 120 days before the closure of the institution or location of the institution, in an educational program offered by the institution as to which the Bureau determined there was a significant decline in the quality or value of the program more than 120 days before the closure.
  4. The institution has been ordered to pay a refund by the Bureau but has failed to do so.
  5. The institution has failed to pay or reimburse loan proceeds under a federal student loan program as required by law, or has failed to pay or reimburse proceeds received by the institution in excess of tuition and other costs.
  6. You have been awarded restitution, a refund, or other monetary award by an arbitrator or court, based on a violation of this chapter by an institution or representative of an institution, but have been unable to collect the award from the institution.
  7. You sought legal counsel that resulted in the cancellation of one or more of your student loans and have an invoice for services rendered and evidence of the cancellation of the student loan or loans.

To qualify for STRF reimbursement, the application must be received within four (4) years from the date of the action or event that made the student eligible for recovery from STRF.

A student whose loan is revived by a loan holder or debt collector after a period of noncollection may, at any time, file a written application for recovery from STRF for the debt that would have otherwise been eligible for recovery.  If it has been more than four (4) years since the action or event that made the student eligible, the student must have filed a written application for recovery within the original four (4) year period, unless the period has been extended by another act of law.

However, no claim can be paid to any student without a social security number or a taxpayer identification number.

Student Record Retention

Argosy University retains student records to satisfy its obligations to students, employees and legal authorities for six years. Transcripts are maintained permanently.

California students taking a course online can expect assignments to be returned within 72 hours following the due date.
