Academic Experience: The courses are relevant to the degree plan. The amount of work is not overwhelming. The staff is responsive and proactive in helping students achieve. The amount of time given to complete assignments is too short.

Tuition & Financial Aid: It is a private school so the fees are astronomical compared to public school but because of the schedule and registration process I think it is a convenience fee. I would love for the fees to reduce so I would not have oo much to pay at the end.

Student Body: They are mostly friendly and customer service oriented. They do try to get back with you as soon as possible. Sometimes the notes in the system are not updated or missing information.

Student Body: We have a wide variety of students. I have tslked to students from all over the country, as well as in other countries. I have even taken a few classes with soldiers that are in Afghanistan. They seem to be very happy to have something of home with them, and I try to talk to them whenever they are in one of my classes.

Online Courses: I love the coarses at AIU. They are quick (only 5 weeks) and keep you on your toes. But you will enjoy your time, and work your time better. The instructor's comments with the posted grades are very useful to bettering your scores.

Overall Experience: I would choose this school again. From the onset of this, they have been nothing but kind and considerate about my disability, and very helpful throughout.
The only thing I could complain about is that they do not communicate with each other very well.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I think the there is no price too high to get an education, however my daughter is also going to an online college, and she pays about half of what I am. It just seems like an awful lot to pay, and we don't even get real books, they are downloads for the most part. I have been in at least 20 classes, and have received about 6 actual books, the rest were ebooks.

Academic Experience: The instructors at this school are very involved with the student, and seem to really wish them success. I have not had a class, where the instructor has not given out his/her home, cell, and office numbers - as well as giving email addresses. They are willing to discuss any problem that their students are having, and try to find a way fix the problem that the student is facing.

Academic Experience: My classes are what I was expecting, however, I hadn't realized just how many people would be going into the same career field. The instructors and staff are very helpful, and they all seem that they really want the students to learn everything they need to join the workforce upon graduating.

Career Services: There from the Beginning – You already have access to setup post-graduate services with help from faculty members from day one as a student.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Bare Minimum Coverage – As a returning student at the age of 33, supporting a wife and four children with severe credit problems, I assumed I would get more financial aid than I did. Apparently I make too much for anything other than minimum FAFSA coverage, and there are no other grant or scholarship opportunities linked with this school I am aware of. I can barely afford to remain a student but have spent too much to back out now, and apparently I have no hope of private loan aid so random contests like this are really my only hope for anything other than bare minimum coverage.

Campus Resources: Great Opportunities – AIU Online offers a great career services experience for a graduate. They also are partners with many major employers, including mine, which qualified me for a grant. They also have an internship for credit program when a student reaches a certain point in their junior year of studies. The online campus also offers a virtual commons to allow students to get to know each other and join groups of others who have the same interests or degree programs.

Career Services: I believe that AIU Online offers an excellent career services program. There is a lot of great resources to help a graduate in developing a resume and cover letter, as well as advice for the job search and interviewing. My only complaint is that as an online school, its job searches tend to not reach my area. It would be great if I were able to move for a job, but because of my family I cannot. When I was working with a career advisor last year, the jobs she recommended me I was able to find myself through job boards online for my area. But overall, the department is involved with helping students find jobs.

Academic Flexibility: Excellent Flexibility – As an online school, it offers me the opportunity to make my own schedule completely as long as I meet the deadlines for assignments, which is weekly. I recently felt overwhelmed taking two courses every five weeks (this is the accelerated rate at which the school operates) because of work and family obligations. I called and spoke with an admissions counselor, and they easily changed my program to one course every five weeks to help me to do my best. I also was able to transfer almost every credit that I had earned elsewhere.

Career Services: I'm just beyond my half-way point to a BS degree in Graphic Design. Haven't needed Career Services, but have received invitations from Career Services for Internships while enrolled.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Very Resourceful! The financial aid department was very efficient in assisting new students in locating financial aid for enrollment.

The protocol of advisers that contact you to get you ready for everything you'll need is amazing.

Career Services: Career Center Helpful – Getting close to my graduation date, Career Services were enthusiastic about helping find a job, and the virtual campus keeps you up-to-date with job fairs. Career Services is willing to help you revamp your resume and interact with enhancing your interviewing skills.

Overall Experience: At first, I thought that my online courses were not going to enhance my knowledge, but in the long run, they became very helpful, and I'm loving learning more each day.

Academic Experience: Course Load – As a business major, I think the courses offered are relevant to the degree I have chosen to pursue. The classes appear to be very interesting and challenging. I like challenging because it keeps my brain churning. I however do not like the fact that I have to do all the general education classes which I have no interest in or will not be a benefit to me. I think that if I am required to take a class like art appreciation and US history, that my school will at least ask my opinion or look at my file to see that I am not an American citizen and a US history course will be more beneficial to me than an art appreciation course.

Overall Experience: I enjoy the flexibility of achieving my educational goals with AIU. Attending school with them is very affordable and the staff and professors are very supportive. Sometimes I have 3 individuals calling me on an every other day basis to ensure all is going well with me, both academically and personally. I am also satisfied with the education that I am receiving as the professors display instantly their real-world experience, which I think is very important.

Academic Experience: Workload and Content of Courses – Most of the content covered in the courses are relevant as should be. They are also very challenging and in my opinion meets the criteria for the objectives outlined. However, one of my biggest issues with the content is the recurring use of course content, which can be accessed on the net by the school. I am aware that the professors are not the ones who creates the assignments but I do think the school needs to change its assignments as regularly as possible so cheating students do not have the option of looking up that same paper on the internet and submitting it for grading with simple enhancements.

AIU Online is enjoyed by students that have a variety of diverse schedules, backgrounds, and career goals. The school is a wonderful choice for those that want an accredited college degree but have limited mobility and heavy time constraints. The Instructors here are well prepared, enthusiastic, and eager to broaden the minds of their students. At AIU Online, many peers turn into friends, teachers into mentors, and students into scholars.
