Student Body: Most students at my school are very career oriented. They do not socialize much outside of class because it is a distance learning program people have full time jobs, families, and other obligations outside of school that they take care of.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid department is very attentive to helping to complete the fasfa each term when it is needed. However, the financial aid department has no resources for scholarships or grants available to students. This leaves the student spending a lot of time searching for these types of assistance.

Academic Flexibility: The reason that i choose this school over others is because I had recently worked with them to get enrolled in school a few yeaars before I actually attended, and had read and reasearched information about their school. While being in the military, it has allowed me to work and go to school while deployed in Afghanistan.

Student Body: This school seems to be for people that have jobs already and are getting back on their education, because life events prevented them from attending school after high school. The classes are very informative, interactive, and understanding. There are some cases that different teacher have different expectations for their classes and grade might change somewhat at the beginning of the course.

Campus Resources: The resources are great but the only thing that I didn't like was the past students that were supposed to help you with classes sometimes never would show to the chats to help you with the subjects.

Campus Resources: well if you are doing online classes you do need a computer and a printer. I am a returning student and before, classes were great. The only part that I didn't really like was the group assignments because not everyone would do their part and it was then left up to you to pick up the slack from the others.

Campus Resources: There is a virtual commons for interaction. There are labs, workshops, library, ebook store, virtual classrooms and group chats. There is an online chat and recorded chats. The school is designed by tabs and has navigation help. There are events for the students and seminars as well as tutoring sessions.

Online Courses: I was not sure about online as I had heard that they do not place well and the numbers of success was not good. I decided to go based upon the fact that I needed to get enrolled and the community college credits would not transfer to the college I needed to go to after they promised me they would. AIU was recommended to me from Colorado technical college as they were the only one that offered forensic science. I enjoy the flexibility but need to be a little more diciplined about it. The classes are fine, however the books are not so easy to get to since my internet access is only an air card. The books need to be easier to print so I can review them easier and not cost myself a lot of headaches and money for data usage.

Academic Experience: The professors I ahd were very engaging and involved with the students. They encouraged me to email them if I had questions about the course work, visit with them during their office hours, offered a gang of resources to foster learning and gave me the sense that they really cared about my understanding of the content.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I believe the value of education is worth the tuition. I just wish that it was not so expensive! The financial aid process went smoothly, but when I was laid off from work, I didn't feel there was helpful assistance from the financial aid department (help looking for scholarships, suggestions for putting another plan into action, etc.) other than an email asking if I could make a partial payment and to keep them informed about my situation.

Academic Experience: I am a business major with a concentration in Human Resoources Management. I did not realize there were so many math related subjects that I would have to take for this major. Math is not one of my strong suits. However, AIU provides a myriad of resources to help you achieve the educationaal success you are striving for. I have ben to other online schools before, but I believe this program offers a lot more than just the material; it offers you support and encouragement to think outside the box, think in terms of the whole picture, not just what you think your learning should be about. So I guess that is why taking classes that are more related to math and economics does not bother me. I want to get it in as quickly as possible, so taking two classes at once can get a little hairy. I try to stay organized so that I can satisfy the requirements for both classes. I believe having a business degree is a stepping stone to a promising future.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I think the tuition is about the same as other schools. My problem is the Financial Aid part of it. I got a letter that says 2012, I don't qualify for anything and I have 2 federal loans and a school loan. I don't have money to just throw to a school.

Student Body: I feel that some of the assignments are being duplicated and I put in a lot of research and work and I'm sure people get same grade as me, plagiarism checks are a joke.

Academic Experience: It has a lot of problems but mostly on the financial aid side of the school, the classes are mostly at your own pace but do have weekly deadlines that should be met.

Academic Flexibility: Academics is relative to the student's desire to succeed. AIU will bend over backwards to see that you do.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
