3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Since this is my first semester I love the topics so far except for microbiology and business as a funeral director. Even though I want to be a funeral director the curriculum is monotone and rather boring. I would never think that history of funeral science would interest me but it does and my professsor makes it fun. My registration process was a nightmare. I was actually suppose to start my classes during the fall but apparently I was never notified that the onlince classes were filled. I had to constantly keep harassing the scool administration to explain to me what happened. What made it worse was the fact that apparently they did notify me because they had the wrong email address on file. It did not make any sense to me because one of the faculty members read my email address to me correctly but they were still sending my information to the wrong email address. My advisor was the one that cleared the discrepancy when I was able to finally register for the summer semester.

Academic Experience: Iam a funeral service major. Everytin tat I expected tus far as been awesome. My time and overall knowledge of the material as been great. Iam hoping to get a internsip after this semester so i can finally do what I want is work in a funeral home. That is my dream goal at this very moment. I want to become a funeral director and Iam actually getting into my major in my first semster whic is terrific. The business aspects of it is extremely tough. But with ard work and dedication I will succeed. If I need any extra help the faculty is very welcoming in allowing me to come to the school to use the computers and any other added additional material I need. They also have tutoring programs as well.

Online Courses: It is a bit nerve racking taking online courses because sometimes I get locked out of blackboard. Plus when my instructors send me important emails I get a bit nervous as well because of the due dates. It is entirely different from a regular class. But I rather deal with a online course. The material is great. Its alot of material to cover in a one week span especially when you are a full time student and working.

Academic Experience: Not to happy with AAMI ... I have been an online student since january 2011.... The last three semester 2012-2013 they have overlooked me and scheduling my classes. Now I am at a setback and they have yet to return calls and emails. Their credits aren't accepted at other colleges and now I feel like I wasted 2.5 yrs of my life and education career.

Academic Flexibility: Everything was pretty much easy from my expierence you have to do a little foot work yourself, but once you get all appropriate documentation in, everything else falls into place. You don't have to travel. Again, all is done by the stroke of a key and internet. The online course is they way to go if you have tough business hours, children or can't make it into the city. Credits were easily transferred and you take as many classes as you can afford or concentrate on.
