5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: My school gets this grade because not only was it easy to get my financial aid but they took off 15% because of where I work. I was even eligible for automatic grants through the school.

Academic Flexibility: I give this school an A+ for the simple fact that they are willing to help adult students who work full time and have families. The school excepts your everyday work on the job as college credits as long as it fits into the academic needs of your major. These things are crucial for adult students.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: As a distance learning school, there is a limited amount of school involvement and extra curricular programs.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Except for the occasional outage or update period, available resources are good.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Resources are generally decent, but since this is a for-profit school, the staff takes every opportunity to nickel and dime its students. It feels like the school exists more to provide a supplemental paycheck to instructors who are employed full time elsewhere, and students are just the source of that paycheck.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I am a business major. Classes are pretty much what you would think that they would be. You are required to start out with a research based course so that's pretty handy for the rest of your load. You are given all of the assignments up front typically and can usually turn in assignments early if you choose. I find this pretty handy if my personal life becomes hectic I can work on assignments ahead of time, when I have time. The workload tends to be writing heavy but nothing too terribly bad. I like it.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The biggest thing that separated the APUS system from other colleges that I've attended is the attentiveness of the administration. I very rarely if ever felt like I was not going to be helped promptly and thoroughly by campus staff. They have consistently done an excellent job at keeping my education rolling.

Campus Resources: This is an online only university. The computer based resources are very adequate for your needs as a student. Most of these are research based such as libraries and various databases.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: It's an online university so the big one is access to academic resources such as the library and online learning centers. The university does both of these well.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The support staff are really great at answering questions and helping along military personnel. I hadn't seen anything offered outside of simply answering questions though

College Junior

Online Courses: Never really experienced real traditional classroom. So no comment.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The major I have chosen benefits me in my day to day job. The workload is very manageable with a family and a full-time job.

Student Body: This school allows me to do online work while stationed in Germany. Very great school and very helpful staff.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition cost at APUS is extremely reasonable. They give book grants to help keep the cost of getting your education down. They assist in the acquisition of financial aid if it is needed and the advisors will direct you to scholarships where needed.

Academic Flexibility: APUS works with working adults to make the learning experience much easier for us. The school is flexible with its schedule and will work with your schedule (as long as you give the teacher enough notice). The requirement to attain multiple log ons per week, as some other schools require, is not needed here as this school is flexible with your work schedule.

4 College Junior

Student Body: My school consists of adult learners that are working to better themselves both personally and professionally. The students are all very professional when dealing with other students and with the teachers within the classroom setting.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I have recently begun taking courses that directly relate to my major. So far, my experience has been excellent and rewarding. I enjoy the reading, analyzing, and writing that I do for my major, which is English. Aside from one poor experience with a professor who did not seem to understand basic English concepts, I am very happy with the major and its elements so far.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: APUS was GREAT with allowing me to transfer credits to the school from two other schools. Also, this is an online school, which makes everything very convenient and flexible as far as completing coursework.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I have had a mostly smooth time dealing with my professors at APUS. However, I have been disappointed in the past by various things, such as not always getting grades back when the professor says they will be back and not being able to trust a teacher's judgement. I felt that I was unable to trust one teacher's judgement when she marked points off of one of my papers for using a "run-on" sentence. I was disappointed that she repeatedly confused compound sentences with run-on sentences. In that case, I did need to tell someone in administration in the hopes that she does not mislead any other students who are trusting her reviews. However, that was only one professor. Mostly all of the professors that I have had have been great. I appreciate the time they take to pay attention to my work and to teach me new things.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I love this school. It is online and flexible, and the tuition is low. The best part is that the school provides electronic versions of the books I use for class for free. I don't get much financial aid, but my school accepts what I do get, and provides options for payment plans. I appreciate that because it could help me graduate a little bit faster by being able to add the classes that I need to my schedule. Besides the fact that it is sometimes difficult to reach the financial aid office, I have no complaints about my school. I feel that I am receiving a good education at a good price.

Online Courses: If I felt like I was learning anything, I think the online experience would be awesome. I don't really care about frats and parties, so this should be a great opportunity to get an education without all the "college" junk...however, I don't feel like I'm learning anything didn't already know, so to this point it has been a gigantic waste of many thousands of dollars.

2 College Senior

Academic Experience: History classes are interesting at first, but basically the same curriculum with slightly different subject matter for every class. It gets boring...

2 College Senior

Academic Experience: I feel like I could have taken 1 class and ended my "education." Every class involves basically the same assignments (some weekly posts, maybe a short paper, and a "research" paper). Some of my "instructors" were waaaaay less knowledgeable about the material than I was. I had a couple of assignments that I purposely scrapped-- one in which I wrote "are you really reading this?" and one in which I just didn't do a number of assignments, and I still got an A and a B+. I don't think they care if we actually learn anything as long as they get their money.

College Senior

Campus Resources: Again, no campus. I feel as though it is set apart because I could have just handed them $20,000 and got a degree without all the homework. I don't know, maybe that's normal for all colleges. I was expecting to actually learn something.
