Academic Flexibility: American Inter Continental University Online is very convenient because of the fact that it is online so I can go into the class anytime I want to. My credits from other schools have been transferred to this University so no problem there. The only problem, frustration I have right now is I had to take this Quarter off from classes because the funds have ran out. I am applying for Scholarships and Grants to help pay for school. I am fifteen credits away from receiving my Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice, I am an A student my GPA is 3.08. My Student Adviser and Financial Aid told me i need to take this Quarter off to find Scholarships and Grants so I will be able to finish school. They are working with me to help me with this. I also received a list of places to apply for Scholarships and Grants which I have been applying at. My Student Adviser said I am doing great with my grades and my GPA the only optical is the funds ran out and she said while I am out of school this Quarter I need to apply at as many places as I can before the next Quarter starts which is in August.

Online Courses: One of the things I like the best about the online courses is the interaction with the professor/student relationship, and peer-to-peer interaction. I went to a traditional classroom, there might be over a hundred students in the class nobody interacts with each other. We listen to the teacher doing a lecture take notes do the assignments go to the next class. The professors I think are very intelligent in their field and any questions we ask they know the answer. I was in another Online University before I started at American Inter Continental University Online some of the students would tell the teacher they didn't understand a question and the teacher would give us the answers. Another thing I like about this University is the Professors say they don't want to give us the answers they only want to help us so we can find the answers our self.

The workload isn't bad if I can keep up with the assignments, Discussion Boards and Intellipath Assignments. The thing I have a hard time with is prioritizing what I need to do, but once I get this taken care of I am fine.

Career Services: American Inter Continental University Online has all of the above, quality post-grad services, quality career center, alumni network and job prospects. Some of the Professors talk about the different jobs we will be able to apply for with our different degrees in Criminal Justice and they tell us some thing we will need to do to get the job. What to say, how to phrase certain things to help us stand out from other applicants applying for the same jobs.

Overall Experience: My experience with courses and professors at American Inter Continental University Online are great. The classes are very interesting, if any help is needed I can talk to the teacher or other classmates. The class size can be a small class or a very large class, if the class size is large it is harder to get to know the other classmates. The variety of courses offered have to do with Criminal Justice. In the beginning of the class the Professor tells us the best way to contact him or her if we need help with anything about the class.

Overall Experience: I also work in Security at the place I work so I will be able to use this as experience when I get my Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice and start applying for jobs. They do talk about different job prospects we can apply for and where these jobs are at. I have read some of the comments from some students who have already graduated from American Inter Continental University Online and some are very disturbing saying this school is a fraud but on the other side there are students who say this University has been the best and they have started a career in the place they wanted.

Academic Experience: Being in Criminal Justice is great, I think because I am learning a lot of things I didn't know about the Criminal Justice System. On the Discussion Board each student has to have a post and then we have to respond to at least two other classmates. Some of the people in the classes are already in jobs that are in law enforcement or have to do with Criminal Justice and their responses are very interesting and keep the Discussion Board going through the entire week. I was told there are some jobs I do not qualify for because of my age, I am a little older than the average student but there are a lot of jobs I can apply for when I get my Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice.

Overall Experience: I am attending American Inter-Continental University Online This is an excellent online University. The classes are each five and a half weeks than another class for five and a half weeks which equals a Quarter. Right now my GPA is 3.08, I am in Criminal Justice and I love learning. I have been in this University since 2014, I have made friends in the first years whom I am still in contact with. Some of the classes are so interesting, I wish they were longer than five and a half weeks long. In some classes the same students as in other classes which is nice because I know how they will talk on the Discussion Boards. In the first week of classes we get to know each other on the Discussion Board which is nice.

In some of the classes we have Intellipath and the Discussion Board, in other classes we have a Discussion Board and an Individual Assignment. I have to be disciplined in order to stay ahead in the classes. There are also Live Chats which are an excellent way to get involved with the teacher and other classmates. the Professor asks questions about the Discussion Board first, he or she talks to the students and we answer the questions by typing them in or asking questions by typing them in the response box. The Live Chats last an hour, if we can't make it to a Live chat we can listen to the Archives which is the Live Chat but if we have questions we have to send an email to the Professor.

The question What one thing distinguishes this school from other schools can't be answered with one answer, if there was an all of the above that would have been the one I would have chosen. I love everything about this Online University. I work in a hotel and sometimes I work late at night, I can come home and get into the class and work on an assignment and/or the Discussion Board anytime I want. Where at a ground University there are only certain times a student can go into the classes.

Academic Flexibility: I am Eastern Standard time, and the school is Central; that means everything is an hour behind. I love the fact that I have until 1 AM, my time to get things done. It does get confusing sometimes, but that extra hour is a blessing. They accepted all of my credits and because they are on a special grading scale, my 22 credits put me about 39% closer to graduating. As soon as the school gets your unofficial transcripts, it takes the school about 24 hours to determine what you need and how long it will take you to finish your degree plan.

5 College Senior

Online Courses: With AIU, everything is laid out for you, like you do not have to rush to register for classes before the upper or lower classman. You can see your progress, all over your portal on your degree plan. I love Intellipath, because they are allowing you to progress as quickly as you want. I also, like the fact that you are in a category, you are a student there to learn to advance your skills to exceed in the real world, instead of being a class, you are a member.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The course is set-up as if you are on an actual campus, but you are not rushed, and you take a test to determine your knowledge on the subject. Also, they count majority all of your credits; Freshman orientation class, and all classes that do not go towards your degree plan, but are designed to create a well rounded student.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: In my program, they start off with a review and strengthen class( that's what it feels like to me) The material is something we all have done, with no honest structure, and the class is teaching how to create effective presentations, both formal and informal. The work is to your paste, but you have a week to finish your lesson and reflect back to the class, everyone got something different.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school goal is to get you out, filled with enough knowledge to apply it in any area in life. Their Intellipath program is great, it allows you to work on you,instead of working at the same paste as everyone else in the class; it gives room for students to take their time through a lesson, instead of failing because the class is moving way too fast. The staff there is amazing, and alumni recommend the school with no hesitation, or any signs of "it's great... but" everyone loves the process at American InterContinental University.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: The Virtual Campus at AIU allow you to Study anytime, anywhere and the way you learn best. It is a powerful, specialized curriculum. I haven't ran into any frustrations yet and my experience so far has been excellent. A few of my credits has transferred and it has lessin the time that I will be attending

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Online class is different from classroom because theres no specific time to be in class and as long as you submitting your work in time each week and posting on the discussion you are ok. Theres still options where u can interact with students, the professor and look up different sources to help you in case of struggle.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: Alumni Association exist to help you pursue your long term goals by providing networking opportunities and professional development support after you graduate from AIU

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have only taken one class with AIU so far because I'm just starting. I have join a online chat with my professor and he is a great professor. He explained how he could be reached in case we need him and he went on what he will go over in the course on the virtual campus

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The value for obtaining my Bachelors in Healthcare Management is pursuing my Bachelors and advancing my career. This program is going to help me move forward in life and stay focus. Being in the Health Care field has always been my passion. AIU is a powerful, specialized curriculum. The Virtual Campus allows you to study anywhere, anytime and the way you learn best, and that whats unique about AIU. Alumni Associates exists to help you pursue your long term goals by providing networking opportunities and professional development support after you graduate from AIU

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The most unique aspect about my program is that they learn every aspect of my program, they teach you a every thing you need to know and each class is approximately 4 weeks long, which is wonderful. In case of a struggle, there is plenty if resources available to help you. The program I choose has plenty of employment opportunities, and its a program I know I am going to enjoy.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: AIU has been wonderful, the virtual campus is wonderful and very helpful when needed. It has every possible source to help in case of struggle. My advisor has been helpful in everyway and has been there in every step. What make AIU unique is the way its set up, and its not confusing once you learn the virtual campus. There's plenty of support there when you need it. I would choose this university again only because the classes not to long and there is plenty if helpful resources

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I was confused about how the transfer of credits worked. I was awarded a transfer of my English Comp 11, but not the English Comp 1. As far as the flexibility of the school, it's very convenient because I can go to school anytime of the day whether it's early morning or late night. That really helps me out being a stay at home mom/wife, with 5 small children that all have allergies and asthma.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Technically, I prefer the online classes as oppose to the traditional class. In a traditional classroom setting, I tend to get stage freight being in front of a class or being called upon by the instructor to answer a question. With the online class no one can see me. I also like that online classes cater to my needs. If I'm not able to attend class, I don't get penalized for it by being marked absent. Finally, I like the fact of working on my own and not having to work in groups to complete projects. Reason, you have to deal with different attitudes and moods. Example, I don't have to feel threatened by anyone that may not like me or judge me because of my race, sex, or living status.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'd have to say the professors are truly genuine to their students needs. When things don't always go as planned they are there to help. Based on the courses I've taken thus far, I've really enjoyed them and learned a lot. Although, with my PRES 111 class, I was very nervous about it because I knew absolutely nothing about PowerPoint Presentations. My instructors from both classes worked with me and encouraged me every step of the way. My COMP 101 class gave me a better understanding of PowerPoint 2016 because I had an Individual Project assignment. With the help of my instructors, I've passed both classes with an A+.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: No comment at this time.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I'm still considered a new student. I've only completed 3 courses successfully. Also, I have not been in school long enough to really experience everything that the university has to offer.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: I don't want to change nothing

AIU Online is enjoyed by students that have a variety of diverse schedules, backgrounds, and career goals. The school is a wonderful choice for those that want an accredited college degree but have limited mobility and heavy time constraints. The Instructors here are well prepared, enthusiastic, and eager to broaden the minds of their students. At AIU Online, many peers turn into friends, teachers into mentors, and students into scholars.
