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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Academic Experience: The classes start every month and are easy to register for. Some professors are very hands off and not very hard on grading, while others are very strict and have a lot of assignments. The wide variety of students make the class discussions a little difficult sometimes.

Online Courses: American Public University System is a great school to take online courses through. I am enrolled in the military portion of the school, AMU. My books are paid for and shipped to me but ebooks have been made available in every course. The instructors are extremely helpful and attentive. The workload is acceptable. The tools offered through the online classroom are excellent and extremely useful. I would recommend this school to everyone who is looking for a great online academic experience.

Academic Experience: American Public University offers a variety of degrees and courses. The registering process is very easy but for those who need help with it, there are many wonderful people available to talk to via e-mail, phone or live chat. The professor are often working professionals who have a great deal of experience in their field and are passionate about the topics they are teaching. Most of the time, they are readily available to answer students' questions, help with difficulties, and are very understanding when life happens and one has difficulties fulfilling the requirements for a class. 8 and 16 week classes are offered which is great for working adults and those who like to take their time to finish a class or speed up their studies. The shorter classes require serious work and there is no time to procrastinate. Weekly forum posts keep instructors and students in touch with each other, quizzes test the knowledge of weekly lessons and final papers require the application of gained knowledge and overall skills.

Academic Flexibility: I am currently in my sophomore year at American Public University. Overall, my experience with this university has been very pleasant so far. Yes, there currently is an issue with the disbursement of financial aid and many students have to wait for months until their FA is processed and a refund disbursed. This issue is annoying and there are cases in which students were not able or willing to continue their journey with this school. But aside from this "glitch", the quality of the classes is excellent and most instructors do an amazing job leading their student. I have had less than a hand full of professors who weren't as active in the classrooms as one may wish for, or didn't grade the students' assignments within the time frame given to them, but those teachers are the minority of the faculty. I had the honor of taking very interesting courses taught by professionals of their subject who included their real-life experience to teach the students important material. I would highly recommend attending this school once the financial aid issue has been resolved. Definitely worth it!
