4 College Junior

Online Courses: True College Experience – I have found online education an excellent way to prepare for graduate study. Through online interactions and discussion groups, to extensive writing and research, coursework is challenging and push students to contribute to their chosen fields.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: Online Classes – For a school offering online classes, I found their database to be very user friendly. I had no difficulty using the discussion boards or folders for saving files and turning in assignments.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Best School for a Busy Adult-Learner – Being an older student it was difficult to go back to school. APU has made going to school a wonderful experience. The online classes make being a working parents and student a lot easier than other schools I have attended. I don't feel as though I am over loaded in class work at the expense of my family. I would recommend American Public University to anyone.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: APU and How It's Unique – American Public University is unique in many ways. All classes are taught via distant learning. The convenience it gives you is wonderful, as well. The major part of most class grades is discussion boards, which I feel is a great way to learn from other students. I am enjoying how organized the school is, also.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Flexible and Convenient – My overall experience at American Public University has been very pleasant. It is unique in many ways. It started out as a Military University to help Military students complete their educations. It is now available to the public. It is an online school, which makes it easy for busy students, like me, to attain their goals. I would most definitely choose APU again due to its flexibly and wonderful professors. It has been and continues to be a wonderful journey.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: Fire Science – In my field of study I like how the Professors know the aspects of the job and the field of stidies. A lot of my Professors were retired firemens. And they made it easy to relate the subject to real life experience.

College Freshman

Student Body: It is hard to rate this because this University is online. I am not aware of the student body diversity.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Ease of Use – I believe that they provide a wide variety of classes and timelines to be able to effectively finish all classes. You must have a computer and or access to the internet to be able to attend APU.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I am very pleased that I am able to see into the future all the courses I need to complete my degree and when they will be offered. So that I may preregister and not have to wait for another semester before they can be taken. I have also had great communication with the academic planners to keep me on track.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: As Real as Being There – Even though the classes are all online, it is just like being there. The students and instructors are very involved in the courses and make sure you pick up on things. You can take one class, or five classes at once. You pick what you want and register for them. Everything is based on "by the week", so you have time to get caught up later in the week if you miss a day. So long as you sign in during the week and get your work done, it's still on time. Any issues are always dealt with immediately.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: Class Registration – This is my first semester, starting September 2011, and it's quite possibly the easiest time I've ever experienced while registering. I didn't have to spend a lot of time finding a class that was "open." I clicked on the class I needed and it was there and available.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: Pay Attention to Deadlines – If you read the syllabus and do your best to do what is required of you you will do well.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Well Organized Classroom – One of the things I like most about this college is the way the the online classrooms are set up. I feel like I always know what is going and what is expected of me. If I get a bad grade in a course, I know it's my own fault for doing a sub-job on the assignment or turning it in late, because all the requirements are spelled out very clearly for me and all of my professors have been incredibly helpful.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Class Registration Process Is VERY Easy – Enrolling and registering for classes at APU is a breeze. It can all be done online in a matter of minutes.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Piece of Cake – It is an online school so I get to decide when I want to work on something or not.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I'm majoring in Emergency and Disaster Management which is a unique degree in itself. APUS is a great group of people with common interest which makes the learning experience that much better!

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Good Scholarship Program – If you have a good work ethic and have the grades to show for it, then Purdue helps you out financially. You can go into college with a grant from the school for up to $10,000 every year provided you maintain a certain GPA.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Online Classes – I feel close to the teachers and students even being an online course

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Introduction to Online Classes – I was really happy with my class and the instuctor

5 College Sophomore
