3 College Sophomore

Student Body: Most students are people who work full-time, and do not have time to go to a traditional University.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I chose APUS because it was tailored to my needs. I needed an online school that was accredited. They took my past transfer credits from my old community college to CLEP and DSST test. They even applied my military experience to fulfill my general elective requirement's. The military will pay up to $4500 a year as long as maintain a passing grade.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There is an advantage for myself being a working adult that I can take all my classes online in 8 week formats. That saves me time and money. I am in an undergraduate program and all my books are free. They waive the technology fee because I use TA through the Air Force Reserves. There are plenty of webcast to attend and social media is big here as well. Facebook I joined and they have the Quad which has resources and information like career fairs and veterans affairs.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The virtual e-library has many benefits. Very easy to use and get around from looking for books, articles, or websites. They have course specific sections that relate to the course you are taking. For example if I were to take a history class in western civilization I would go to that specific portion of the library that relates to western civ. It will be specific for the articles and books I need to do my research on.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I like the virtual campus. Very easy to navigate. Responses to my emails are returned in a prompt manner. The virtual classroom is easy to use. Locating the readings, assignment's, quizzes, and forums are easy to access. The professor keeps the class engaged with follow up forum responses and questions. All the staff that I talk to over the phone or email are professional and knowledgeable.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I currently attend classes online. My Major is in Criminal Justice and I am currently a Security Forces member in the Air Force. I enjoy the way the online courses are set up because in my career field flexibility is a necessity rather than a convienience.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I awarded the professors in my school with a B- because I felt that overall there could be more interaction with the students. I have had some professors who were constantly involved. However, I have also had others who gave little to no feedback. I think in the online learning environment it is important for students and teacher to maintain as much communication and interaction as possible.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: When choosing a grade for this school I felt that an A was well deserved. American Military University also known as American Public University Systems, is well know for flexibility, especially when dealing with Military members. I began taking courses in a deployed location and the administration as well as instructors were very easy to deal with and understanding of my situation. This made it easy for me to focus on giving my all in each assignment without fear that I may lose internet access for a week or two and fail because I cant turn in my coursework on time. Everything in the online classroom was easy to follow and understand. Also, being a military member I found that this school was also flexible for me to transfer military training credits.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I use Military Tuition Assistance but it has been suspended because of the Govt shutdown

College Junior

Academic Experience: I just began, so I have no true scope of the experience just now.

College Junior

Academic Experience: Just started, not sure just yet.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I applied for admission in July. After numerous delays, and "misinformation" I finally began this term, Oct.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I wish I would have looked at sooner and researched more to see if I was eligible for more than I received.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: The material is not overwhelming to do in time frame of working full time and classes, but not being as computer savvy as most it can be intimidating and sometimes I am not sure of who or what I can contact for help.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: I have enoyed my academin experience at APUS, I am challenged by professors and students. I have enjoyed every course taken here!

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: There's a lot of resources for students. Online you can find everything from counseling to tutoring. Also, APUS hosts events all over the US for sutdents to attend and meet faculty, students and alumni.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: I am a Business major and there courses provided at APUS are incredible. I ahev attended othere colleges where they offered typical business courses. There are so many options with APUS, I am currently taking Critical Thinking for Business and Global Business practices.

5 College Senior

Student Body: There is a large student body. Since it is an online institution students come from every walk of life. Though the college is based in West Virginia people all over the world attend the college. Diversity is definately strong among the university.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: I attend an online college, therefore an online campus is in place. I enjoy the learning styles of each professor. The only negative aspect about online learning/ distance learning is that I connect with each class mate via internet, so it is completely different that face-to-face courses. The online library and databases are outstanding.

College Senior

Student Body: This doesn't really apply because the courses are all online and it's never a good idea to attempt to guess based on the last name.

5 College Senior

Online Courses: The thing I enjoyed most was using real world events to applicable subjects that made me familiarize myself more with what was occurring outside of the United States. Too often, people/students become too dependent upon the media for information who will only tell what they want you to hear, rather than research the issues to get a better perspective.

5 College Senior

Career Services: I have received everything I need for preparation in the real world. Along the way, I have been sent email notifications reminding me of the next step I need to take to make the transition to become a graduate and enter law school a little easier; so I'm not rushing to do everything at the last minute.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Teachers are always willing to help!
