1 College Senior

Campus Resources: Interesting Set up – They have all the materials that you need online in the library, However accessing them is extremely confusing. You must log-in to the database then search for a topic. There is little to no organization to the database and I refuse to use it.

Online Courses: Lots of Writing – Every class is discussion post and many of them. It's almost all you'll be doing for the entire time you are in that class. Its time consuming but worth it. It helps you understand the material because you are forced to research the topic and provide a logical discussion on it.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Keep Calling – You have to call them to really get a suitable answer on your finances. The email system takes days to get back to you, and it's always a different person. You may have to call more than once as well. The process is harder than it should be. Once everything is settled for one semester, the same thing happens again.

Academic Experience: I am currently attending American Military University at APUS. I have had nothing but a positive experience with this school. Everything is accomplished online, but I appreciate and prefer that. I am a busy mother in the military, and neither want nor need extraneous relationships in the classroom. The instructors have always been courteous, kind, passionate and knowledgable in their respective fields. That attitude is contagious and carries over into each lesson.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The school system that works for the student. Managing time and proper planning will allow the student to acheive any workload and professors generally help with questions on assignment and tests as well as encouraging communication if an emergency has occured and an extention of some sort is needed.

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: All of the Above – Workload is manageable through time management. Peer-to-oeer interaction is amazing with the way the online classroom is set up, registration is seemingly painless, professors are generally easy to get ahold of and are willing to work with the student.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Multitudinous Resources – There is a resource for every problem! Just has occasional maintenance problems.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I have been attending AMU for a little over two years now, and it has been great!

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: Great Advisors – The advisors at AMU are great! They always try and answer all of your questions

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Website Issues – Sometimes during scheduled maintenance, the class rooms are hard to get into.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Network Is Not Reliable – I have found that the school network is constantly having problems. I have learned to do my assignments at the beginning of the week, so I can avoid the stresses of not getting my assignments done due to an outage. It is helpful that the teachers and staff are understandable with the network problems and will work with you as long as you keep in touch with them.

Academic Flexibility: Not All Credits Transferred – I chose this school because of how flexible the class schedules are and liked that it was military affliated. The only downside is I have had to work my way back up to how many credits I had at my community college before attending this school, but the convenience is a plus!

4 College Junior

Student Body: Accepting of Others – Overall, my school consists of people working full-time jobs and/or families while attending classes. It seems as though everyone understands what their fellow student is going through in regards to juggling a busy schedule, and it shows in their forum responses.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Tighter Social Integration Would Be Beneficial. The school is great, the professors really try hard, but since this is an online university, there is a lack of socialization between the students.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Affordable and Quick! Yeah, these guys are top notch when it comes to FAFSA and everything AID and counseling related!

3 College Senior

Online Courses: Ups and Downs – There are technical issues but the overall it is good. Classes can be challenging keeping up with all requirements. Peer-to-Peer contact can be very limited even with message board access. There are a lot of papers and postings as part of the courses. Most professors are very helpful and communicate, others are horrible like any other school. The low level of actual interaction can be hard sometimes.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Not Much Outside of the School, Classes, Etc – All classes are online and most books are as well. Even when books are not digital they are included in tuition so no extra fees.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Fairly Easy – Everything is done online. Make sure you upload your forms quickly. They were easy to work with. Downside is they are big on student loans and it's a bit too automated.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Academics APU – I have had a great experience with this school. The work is challenging and I am able to learn, rather than just get pushed through the shuffle.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Class schedule are very flexible, they have helped when I over enrolled in classes and they have the option for longer 16 week classes for classes in which I may need the extra time to complete.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: American Public University – I appreciate everything about my school, they go above and beyond the necessary steps to ensure that I satisfied and the instructors that I have worked with have always been top notch.

College Freshman

Career Services: Not Sure – To my knowledge AMU is not hiring so I am unsure of these opportunities.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: It's on the Individual – Each student puts forward a certain level of effort. Some students put forth more than others but for the most part everyone puts in a lot of effort.

5 College Student

Career Services: They are so helpful. I still have a long way to go before I graduate, but already they are helping me find a job in my field.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: Absolutely Wonderful !!!! I love my school ! The teachers and other staff at APUS are very helpful, and actually go that extra mile to help you. Due to the message boards, you truly do get to know your fellow students, in a way you may not be able to in a traditional college if you are shy. To top all that off, none of these courses are a "bird course". You are not going to fly through them, and I like that because it shows that the school actually cares about what you are learning, and how well you are learning it. However, if you are looking for a school that's an "easy ride", this is not the school for you....
