I have been able to change courses at the last minute and easily rearrange my schedule. I probable would had dropped out if it wasn't for my advisor encouraging me to continue and explaining that my GPA allow room for me to have a setback and how I could repair it. My advisr aslo assisted me in taking a leave of absence when my father died and I had to take over as the head of my family and care for my elderly mother with alzheimer' disease and when I personally became seriously ill. Each time I was ready to give up but she helped me through by rectifying my situations positively, encouraging me and never letting me down. She was always there for me!

My expereinces have been invaluable. I recently completed a course on team building and it allowed me to re-assess myself and change how I engage myself as a member of a team. I honestly feel that I am a better employee as a result of taking this class. It also didn't hurt that I got an "A" so I am still on the Dean's list with a 4.0 GPA. I love this school!!!

The help was there when I needed it and this helped me to succeed in my studies.

Because the school is nationwide, there is a larger span of job opportunities to choose from. They have online resources to improve resumes and find employers.

The majority of the student body at AIU consists of people currently in the work force who are looking for additional education. Low economic standing and cramped schedules are the main reasons for students to attend AIU.

AIU has an extensive library that contains lots of useful information. The librarians are online to help assist you if you have any questions. There are also lots of online learning labs and tutoring available if you need help with a specific subject.

My school is completely online however they offer many materials to help get you what you need. There are virtual class sessions that are not required to attend but are very helpful when completeing assignments. There is also a virtual commons where you can get to know other students that attend the university so there is still some contact with your peers. Overall it is great for people who live very full lives and do better managing thier own schedules.

I have heard bad stories from friends saying that their classmates don't help in a group project or that they don't understand the class they are taking and act like they have no idea what they are there to study for. At AIU I have only had a great experience with my classmates they are helpful and are excited to do their work.

I researched online schools before I chose AIU, I thought because it was a University my education would be better but I am paying more than most other schools and the financial department does not explain your options in a manner that you can understand without having to take a course on financial managment through college.

There is learning labs that are accessible for all students. There is also an online library with web resources and access to journal articles, ebooks, and other resources. It seems to be extensive but I find it is not always easy to find what I am looking for.
College Senior 2012-10-25T05:11:00Z
Online classes work well for me since I work full time. There is an extensive amount of writing involved each week. This is more difficult than a regular classroom setting. This is hard for me since I am not good with expressing myself in detail.

Depending on the teacher you will have 1-2 live chat sessions a week. The live chats are interactive, however if you are unable to attend a live chat, they are recorded so you could listen to the chat and email the professor with any questions. There is a lot of interaction on the discussion board. Students comment on each others' posted assignments and really learn from each other. There is also usually a group project that puts students into small groups that work together to complete a project. Communication is key at AIU online.

AIU Online has an extensive online library specific to the program you are studying. There are labs for specific computer programs such as Power Point, Excel, etc. There are also labs for writing in APA style, citations and references. If you cannot find what you need on your own through the labs and webinars, you can chat with a librarian or send an email to the librarian for help. I have emailed the librarian on a couple of occassions and received a wealth of information to help me.

Also, your Career counselor will contact you automatically as you get close to your graduation to see if you are ready to look for a job and will assist in getting your resume out to the proper businesses. There are also ways you can practice interviewing skills and other job hunting skills.

The school schedule is very flexible and this is why I chose AIU. I can work fulltime and be a mother and sign in at anytime to do my work. As long as you have all of your work submitted by easy deadlines it is very easy to succeed.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
I didn't think far enough into my degree decision to understand the amount of debt that I am incurring will be more than I can make in a career with that degree in one year. After completing my associates degree and now partially into my bachelors I have $25k in student loans. At this point, and when I graduate, I will be eligible to be a glorified Office Manager. I am doing that now without a degree and the degree wont increase my income. Hopefully the economy will bounce back and that will help.

I am taking Business Management concentrating in HealthCare management but I feel the classes really aren't focusing in Health Care. I have taken one class related in my first 6 months of classes. I feel that some of the classes really aren't preparing me for the real world. Such as MIS, every hospital or medical office has their own IT person so I don't feel I need to take this type of class.
College Senior 2012-10-21T22:25:53Z
I wish there were more interactions with student than the discussion board. I also wish some instructors were more involved. I have had some chat sessions where things were basically copied and pasted from the assignment list. On the other side I have had some wonderful instructors and met some great people. I wish they would help find scholarships or offer them for grades.

They have helped with Financial Aid, would like it if they helped send me information concerning scholarships. I am a widow whos husband died of cancer and it will be hard to pay back the studend loans, but knowing getting a degree is what will help me get into a better paying postion, it will be worth the cost in the end

The fact that I can access my classroom anytime day or night. Can work on my assignments anytime i would like and am not mandated to attending classrooms. Works great for me because I have to work two jobs to pay my living expenses
College Senior 2012-10-19T03:17:29Z
Not sure of all the facilities on campus, I attend online
College Senior 2012-10-19T03:13:12Z
I have not had any problems with the schools online website, I am able to submit my assignments anytime of the day or night
Sorry, there are no reviews.
