Acess to the school website is for the most part very reliable. I don't go to a campus as the school is 100% on line, and the campus is not close to me. I can't say what there facilities are like.

I like it because its online. I am currently deployed right now and it is easier to access from a computer. I love going to this school.

the job system is mainly based on campus selection.

We have many military people that are able to bring a lot to conversations with personal experience. Most people have said how much they appreciate the school and professors being very flexible with real life situations.

I was very nervous taking courses online in the beginning, however it has worked out great for me and my schedule! I have been able to make my own schedule for the most part and I enjoy being able to access my work so easily online.

There is plenty of flexibility in the classroom. With flexibility comes responsibility. It is important to keep up with the daily readings and discussions as they are part of the classroom activity and interactions.

The typical student enrolled in the University consists of people with families and full-time jobs. There is a diversity among the faculty, staff, and student body. Most of your peers are willing to help you with notes or suggestions in how to better improve your assignments. Everyone is respectful of others opinions and work together to make the classroom an effective environment.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
The Financial Aid process was a breeze. I was always able to check online what documents were needed and it was always easy to call and speak with a Financial Aid Counselor. Best experience I have had with a college!

Calling the school is very easy and the staff is great! My teachers are very easy to get into contact with and have always been understanding. I am able to live life while taking classes.

The workload seems to have much more content and workload than traditional classrooms. Most online students don't have time to go to a classroom, but my experience was you can go on a vacation and not miss work or an exam. The convenience out weighs the adversities.

I was really amazed at how easy the class registration process is, I submitted my application, they took my transcripts, ran them, and then set up an academic plan after I had chosen my major. I can access my academic plan whenever I want, and choose my classes by simply clicking them in my plan. Once registered, I submit my payment and then I can access the course when it opens. They also have many available sections for each course, so I never have to worry about there not being room for my chosen subject.

I am majoring in Intelligence Studies, but I have yet to take any courses specific to my major. I am focusing on getting all of my general education out of the way. However, I have already had the opportunity to speak with other students majoring in the same thing, and they have told me they enjoy it, don't feel too overwhelmed with courses and the instructors are all really helpful and great.

My experience at APU so far has been wonderful. I was intimidated at first by having to navigate through the classes online but it is not that difficult to figure out. Since I can go into the classroom anytime day or night, I have an advantage because I can juggle my plans around the rest of my life. I also love the fact that some classes use e-books but if I prefer I can obtain a through a vender of my choice. Also, the cirriculum offers me a variety of classes to take with my degree program.

When I first returned to school my classes were all in the classroom. After about two semesters I began ALL online classes. By far, online classes are more difficult. While you can work on your classwork on your own schedule, there are deadlines to meet just as in a classroom, but you do not have the instructor right there to answer questions. You have to post them and wait for a reply. Also, much of your learning is self-taught as you will read and read and read and read some more. Some instructor's use powerpoint presentations but most do not (as far as the ones I have had). Still, I have learned a lot in my classes. I was very nervous about this degree program (intelligence studies) since I have NO experience in that field; but the instructors and fellow classmates welcomed me with open arms. I think I have helped my classmates learn as well since I can give them an outsiders viewpoint. I would definitely do it all over again!

The school body is definitely a hard working group. From my past courses I have seen many of them reach out to others to help when needed even offering their assistance. The students also demonstrate good educated academic work with the weekly discussion forums.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
AMU/APUS was extremely friendly and helpful with providing me any answers I had to my questions which were very few because there are plenty of resources to read through on the web page. Plus I believe ther tuition prices are in fact the best and you definitely get your money's worth especially if your part of the military.

The majority of courses have been high quality, interesting, and worth-while. Most professors are personable and helpful. Occasionally there will be one who obviously resents being an online teacher and takes it out on those of us who are merely there to learn. Fortunately, they are more the exception than the rule.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
The tuition is quite reasonable. The financial aid department is great when everything works well, however if there is a problem it takes forever to get resolved. They do no answer the phone, and emails are answered with a form letter that does not address the issue.

This system works very well for people who are busy in their lives as the classroom is asynchronous. There are certain assignments due on specific days each week, however there is no requirement to be in the classroom at any exact time. It is a very flexible learning method for fitting into a work and/or parenting schedule.

I have not yet utilized this service, but have glanced through it. I love that you can look up careers based on your major, and it gives you ideas of places to apply that one may have not immediately thought of. I also love that on the home page, there is always an ad to ensure students are aware of the service.
College Sophomore 2012-11-28T22:13:31Z
I found it easy to register for online classes, and the online classrooms themselves are simple to navigate. The workload is generally managable, although every once in a while there is a professor who thinks their class is the only one you may be taking. All of the professors I have had so far have done a great job with professor/student interaction. As for the peer-to-peer interaction -- I could do without it.
College Sophomore 2012-11-28T21:59:13Z
Although I am an online student, I am very impressed with all of the faculty at my school. The professors are always willing to help, as are all the support staff, whether it be help with the library or financial aid. I also really appreciate that there is always an email or notice when the system will be down due to inclement weather or updates, or when staff will be limited due to holidays.
College Freshman 2012-11-20T20:19:30Z
From what I know I believe that their services are very helpful.

AMU is great with the selection of classes they offer and how often they're offered. They offer sixteen and eight week classes. I've transfered twenty five credits from another institution and it was very straight forward and done in a timely manor.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
My schools financial aid office is excellent in helping with the process of applying for federal student aid. Anytime I've had any issues or questions there is always someone on the phone who is more than willing to answer any questions I have. The information that they have given me is all correct thus far.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
