4 College Senior

Campus Resources: This system works very well for people who are busy in their lives as the classroom is asynchronous. There are certain assignments due on specific days each week, however there is no requirement to be in the classroom at any exact time. It is a very flexible learning method for fitting into a work and/or parenting schedule.

4 College Freshman

Career Services: I have not yet utilized this service, but have glanced through it. I love that you can look up careers based on your major, and it gives you ideas of places to apply that one may have not immediately thought of. I also love that on the home page, there is always an ad to ensure students are aware of the service.

4 College Freshman

Online Courses: I found it easy to register for online classes, and the online classrooms themselves are simple to navigate. The workload is generally managable, although every once in a while there is a professor who thinks their class is the only one you may be taking. All of the professors I have had so far have done a great job with professor/student interaction. As for the peer-to-peer interaction -- I could do without it.

5 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Although I am an online student, I am very impressed with all of the faculty at my school. The professors are always willing to help, as are all the support staff, whether it be help with the library or financial aid. I also really appreciate that there is always an email or notice when the system will be down due to inclement weather or updates, or when staff will be limited due to holidays.

3 College Student

Career Services: From what I know I believe that their services are very helpful.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: AMU is great with the selection of classes they offer and how often they're offered. They offer sixteen and eight week classes. I've transfered twenty five credits from another institution and it was very straight forward and done in a timely manor.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: My schools financial aid office is excellent in helping with the process of applying for federal student aid. Anytime I've had any issues or questions there is always someone on the phone who is more than willing to answer any questions I have. The information that they have given me is all correct thus far.

2 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid process is very confusing and the financial aid department does not keep you informed of the status of your funding, or explain how to pay tuition if you plan to pay partially with financial aid money and partially with other funds. They are slow to respond to e-mailed questions, and do not provide clear, concise answers.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: APU was the only online school that offers a Bachelor's of Science in Environmental Studies completely online. All other schools I researched required at least one-half of the courses to be attended on campus.

5 College Junior

Student Body: The students in my classrooms have been from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds, as well as geographic locations. From various discussions held in the forums, it is clear there are diverse religious beliefs and affiliations, economic backgrounds, and political ideals.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Because American Public University is an online school, everything is done through computer. They use Sakai, which does not communicate well with
Microsoft programs. After some training, it becomes easier, but there is a time limit for online access to classes and, for example, if you do not save your work and post in a forum, you may be timed out and lose all your work. Watching the tutorials is VERY important.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The online library is not very user friendly. It took me about three or four tries to understand how to find course guide books, and the software used does not always work well on my computer, which can be very frustrating.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: weekly forums and discussion. Instructors are always available and there are chat forums for general questions that all students can assist each other with.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: I have had no issues with logging in or using any of the materials online. The campus is very good about communicating times when they will be upgrading or working on the systems.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I am giving an A because overall the benefits have far out-weighed the problems. I am now three months from graduating with my bachelor degree and am looking forward to starting a master degree at another school. The flexibility, promptness in responses and communication from teachers, students, and the help services, has been highly helpful to me. I have really appreciated my experience with APUS.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: While it has not been perfect such as at times when I was having trouble figuring out the software or the websites that further complicated an otherwise easy assignment, I have had an overall awesome experience with this school because it has enabled me to get done what I need to while still holding a schedule with the other things that take priorities in my life. Once you understand the software and websites that are affiliated, it all works out. My favorite part is the Student Services which are available by email any time of the week. They are pretty quick to respond with assignment help or technical problems and have nine times out of ten helped me solve my such problems. Also, there is an online tutoring service that I have never used but might sometime just to try it out.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: AMU offers so many classes that are military driven. I really like abnormal psych and have the opportunity to take a wide range of psych classes that are not offered at other colleges. Ex. Psychology of Terrorism, Psychology of Combact, etc.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: The professors are amazing at this school. They really make the online experience great. They respond in a timely manner and are always focused and willing to assist students.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The computer network has improved lately, or I've improved my understanding thereof. :)

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: This college is perfect for those who work, have families or who are serving in the military and cannot attend a regular classroom setting. It allows students the flexibility to learn and work on courses while still maintaining thier employment,family duties, or military service. The instructors are excellent; being helpful and giving one to one guidance when needed. The forum settings allow the students online to become familar with their classmates in a structured social setting. Through this ability I have found that my knowledge on a subject is increased by the different views and additional information brought to the forums by my fellow students. The staff is helpful and diligent in assisting students. Overall it is a wonderful online university.

5 College Junior

Career Services: Apus never threw me under the rug. They will take care of any problems or issues that I have with the best and quickest response possible. The career center focuses on the students or future students and highly encourages the need to take college courses. The path to your goal is laid out for you as you talk to your counselors and the academic plans are created for that individual. I can not find any negatives about this school.

5 College Junior

Student Body: MY college is filled with diversity student from all over the world. It serves military members so a lot of peers I have meet are serving in the military or are retired. I have met some peers who have no affilation with the military at all. Diversity is accepted at my college and I love learning and getting to know new peers.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: I enjoy taking online classes because I can access my campus where ever I have internet. I love that I am able to travel and still keep on with my assignments.I have never have to file for an extention so I think that tells you that the workload is never too much. The peer to peer action in the class envolve messaging back and forward through email or on the discussion boards.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I have not had any serious problems with the school. Everything is laid out nicely and the ecampus is easier to access

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Classes here are so much cheaper than at a traditional 4 year university. I can get scholarships, loans, and even an employee voucher program to work at this school. Financial aid peole are generally very helpful. The financial aid website has everything that you need to know.
