4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am in the Bachelors of Psychology program and for the most part I love it. 90% of the professors have been very involved in the class and with the students. Interacting with classmates was a new experience for me online but I like the concept and how I respond to classmates forum papers that we write on a weekly basis. The way our classes are arranged makes me feel like a part of the class and not just a "student". I feel my past knowledge and weekly learning information is utilized thru the classroom. Since the classes are 8 weeks, the pace is fast and there is a lot of weekly reading and workload, but I would not be able to attend college if it were not for online classes and APU works well for me.

Tuition & Financial Aid: the university fees are very reasonable. I have always had difficulty getting my financial aid completed and accepted- I would say that is the worst part of any experience I have had at APU. Not being able to meet with someone at financial aid one-on-one is the only down side to online classes at APU. I wish there was a way to be able to find a private loan company that works with single parents who have lost their jobs because that is the place I am in right now. I have had some difficulty getting responses from the financial aid dept., but I know they are extremely busy. One piece of advice I would give someone is to stay on top of your financial aid all the time.

Career Services: The career counselors are pretty responsive when you contact them. The school also offers special webinars and chat sessions for different majors. Over the last year, they've offered 3 different events for my major.

Campus Resources: APUS has a campus dedicated to military members called AMU. The classrooms are still mixed with military and civilians, I find it is beneficial to have college classes with other military members. It's such an integral part of your life when you are military; we're a different culture. It's nice to be able to connect to other students so quickly because of that similiar culture.

Academic Experience: I've had quite a few upper level Psychology classes with very involved professors. One even offered to write me a letter of recommendation for graduate school; it was greatly appreciated because it was a harder class that I made sure to work harder at. Unfortunately, some of the professors were barely involved. Overall, my experience has been great with the professors at AMU.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Depending on the course, the material is challenging and thought provoking or irrelevant. Most of the time, I did not received feedback from the course instructors, even when I specifically requested it via e-mail. At one point, APUS was undergoing a system transition and the instructors would reference materials or links that were not on the system the course was using at the time. On the whole, the experience was not very positive.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I had no problems while enrolling in the school. I made a couple errors on my FAFSA that delayed things but when I called the school for assistance the staff was eager to assist me.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: When looking for an online school I compared the curriculums offered and I found the course load at APUS to have more diversity. APUS will allow me to learn everything I will need to know to advance my career.

College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I cant give a grade yet as I have just enrolled as a Public Health major.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: All of the classes are completely online and you can do your work according to your schedule. You always know what you need to do and when these assignments are due. It really allows you to plan ahead.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: My school has a very diverse student body,but mostly include working adults,military,parents, and people with little time on their hands. They often need to effectively manage their time to keep up with the courses.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: It is all online and the books are part of the class. You do not need to go out and buy any books for the classes.

5 College Junior

Student Body: Most of my school consiste of active or reserve military personal and their families and it is all online.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is decient since it includes all your books electronicly. Financial aid staff is knowledgeable and works with you to get you funding. The school really wants to help get your degree.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: From a distance learning perspective I would say that APUS is fairly average in what it offers the students. They offer many programs with multiple professors in each, easy access to professors, counselors, and financial aid officers.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The online resources a re great and fairly easy to navigate. I use the online library on a weekly basis to do homework assignements and research purposes. Without a doubt, APUS makes it easy and convenient for their distance learning students. There is always someone available for assistance with class or technical difficulties.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: I am a distance Education student. i am not at the physical location. However, the resources I do have are all online and over the phone. I have never had any issues navigating or using them. For the most part, when I call for technical assistance, the representative goes above and beyond to ensure my issues do not pop up again.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: My major is in hospitality management. I have enjoyed the courses so far. My program is focused on food service and i have learned how important food safety is. The workload is not too overwhelming for me, because everything is due at a timely manner and does not interfere with the other classes.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: At APUS it is an online school so it is hard to know how diverse the student body is. During the first week of each course we introduce ourselves and let everyone know what we are going to school for and what we may like to accomplish once we obtain our degree. You get to meet people from all over the United States and especially those that are deployed in other counries. At APUS everyone is treated the same no matter how different they are.

5 College Student

Student Body: Alot of the students that I react with in the class forums are also military so there is a common bond there. It also makes it easier to relate to them.

3 College Student

Campus Resources: I am taking courses online and the one thing that bothers me about APUS is their online library. It is very difficult to navigate and not very user friendly. Other than that, I like everything else about it. Since I am taking online classes, I can not comment about the campus itself.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition at APUS is very affordable in comparison to many other 4-year colleges/universities. The financial aid process is easy to follow; and the response time from administration at the school is quick and attentive.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: The online courses are excellent. It works with my busy schedule. The deadlines have always been clearly communicated and announced way in advance. The classroom provides face to face communication but the online community I feel provides more. Everyone is required to respond and participate, providing more information and experiences.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I am using my TA through the military and I have never had an issue when them updating my records back to the Military. The process is seamless.

5 College Freshman

Campus Resources: It is very easy to get into my classes. I'm enrolled into online classes so it's easy to print my assignments and be able to complete them.
