Students Sue Chicago School of Psychology Over Alleged Fraud

A group of students has filed a lawsuit against the Chicago School of Professional Psychology, accusing the nonprofit institution’s Los Angeles campus of lying to them about the status of its accreditation with the American Psychological Association, reports the Courthouse News Service. The institution, which has campuses in Chicago, California, and the District of Columbia, is part of a consortium called the TCS Education System. The students’ lawsuit, filed in the California Superior Court for Los Angeles County, alleges fraud, conspiracy, and consumer-law violations, and calls the Los Angeles campus a “degree mill.” It also questions the institution’s nonprofit status. A spokeswoman for the institution called the complaint “without merit” in a written statement cited by The Huffington Post.
