Campus Resources at American InterContinental University - Online: Availability of in-House Grants – AIU had so many grant opportunities for currently enrolled students, which meant less out of pocket expenses on my behalf.

The fact that all books and computer software were covered in the tuition was the best part of it all. Once I registered, my books and software was sent in the mail. AIU also made some books available online, which was great

The professors were very friendly and considerate of the older students who were coming back after a long hiatus. They made themselves available by email, phone or instant message, which a student who was physically attending class would not have the same type of access.

Overall Experience at American InterContinental University - Online: On-Line Studies Is Perfect for Working Mothers – Online education was the only way I could could continue to work full time and complete my degree work. I cannot stop working because I am a single parent and need continuous income. I chose AIU because of the available scholarships and grants at the time I started AA degree. I was able to complete my AA and continue on to my bachelor's until the grants and scholarships ran out. I am looking to go back to AIU because I am 6 classes away from completing my Bachelors Degree in Information Technology. Once I complete my Bachelors Program I will continue on with my Masters at AIU. I have been out of school for over a year and I still receive assistance from AIU's career department. They helped me in getting deferrements on my student loans and helped me to update my resume. While I was in school, I remember my professors being very helpful in ensuring I was learning everything I needed to be successful in the Information Technology Field. I would want to continue my studies anywhere but AIU.

Online Courses at American InterContinental University - Online: Manageable Even for Full-Time Employed W/ Children – Even as a full time mother and military member, I still had time to finish my Associates degree, and now I am completing my Bachelor's degree.

Online courses through AIU are stress-free and completely manageable for anyone seeking to further their education. All coursework is done at the student's pace and is due on the Sunday following the start of the session. Homework requirements ususally center around one to two papers and a discussion board post with responses to your classmates posts.

Grading is done the following week, usually by Wednesday. Registering for classes is as simple as picking out shoes to match your outfit. You explain your goals to your academic advisor, and he/she discusses the option available. You then begin your quest for knowledge.

There is plenty of options for student-professor interaction as well as peer-to-peer interaction. Those options include instant messaging, profile messaging, live chats, discussion boards, email, and group chats.

Academic Flexibility at American InterContinental University - Online: Ease With Everything – I chose this school because at the time I had three children, one two and a half year old and infant twins. My husband works full time with the military, and soon my stint as a stay-at-home mom will come to an end, and I needed an education past my high school diploma. AIU was the smartest decision I could have made. I let the school know right from the start that my family and I were low of funding for an education but I desperately needed one. The Financial Aid department worked with me for my entire Associates degree and I only had to pay $118 out of pocket for my entire degree! My school is online and completely satisfying. I attended a four-year school, the Universiity of Missouri-Columbia, in 2004 and couldn't stand it. I couldn't take core classes right off the bat-I had to take the electives that everyone hates, and my instructors treate me like a number. I have definitely not had that problem with AIU. My academic advisor still contact me and has grown to be a friend. SHe calls to ask about my kids and my family otherwise. The only issue I have ever had with the school was actually with an instructor and her poor performance as such. Other than that, the school is great! I decided to pursue my Bachelor's degree, which I am currently finishing, and have already been accepted to the school's Master's program. I cannot wait to show off the skills I have gained through this school in my future career.

Online Courses at American InterContinental University - Online: Online Classes Fit My Schedule – I work a four 10 hr shift, which makes it impossible to attend a classroom. Online classes gives me more time to devote to assignments. Since the classes are shorter than the classroom, there is a lot more work to do in a shorter time frame. AIU encourages communiation between its students and I talk a lot more to people online than I ever did in a classroom. I enjoy the online college and would recomend it to everyone,especially those working full time jobs.
