Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017

Too many students past or present are more concerned with receiving their stipend a/k/a refund check and don't concern themselves with getting a valuable education, which is why there are so many complaints made against this university. I have personally seen people quit this university after receiving their stipend then have the gall to come write out a complaint about having to repay their student loans or about the instructors and their teaching methods, or just complain. Ridiculous!!! How idiotic is this? You get out of it what you put into it. Working hard, applying yourself, and using time management wisely will further your success at this university. This is so sad that I cannot go any further but to say that I started AIU in 2015 and have incurred a 3.8 as a result of my dedication and hard work, knowing what the end result will be. To that end, my goal is in attaining my degree and I am on the path of doing it if I stay focused, use time management wisely, and follow instructions.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

I am currently taking classes at AIU. I am surprised at all the bad reviews. I am about to finish up two classes. Making a total of three classes I have taken. I love it so far! I am impressed with how much I am learning. Although challenging, it is not too overwhelming for me. My instructors have all been great and helpful! There are so many options I didn't think I would have online. I did have some issues with financial aid but I think that was mostly my confusion. You have to put in to it what you want out of it. If you don't apply yourself or read the material they give you, then you won't take anything from it. I have a hard time learning in a classroom setting. I much rather go the independent route and learn on my own time. It isn't for everyone, but if you work hard and manage your time you will succeed.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015

This was a horrible college. I did not learn anything . We rarely stayed in class the full time and teachers were always absent. If you want a quality education this is not the school.The staff has a very poor attitude and the instructors are not at all enthused to be there.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2006

I was dismissed from the online MBA program due to a medical incident, which did effect my academic performance. I was on academic probation and received a final grade of a B-.Because it was not a B, I was dismissed. I was placed on academic probation because I was withdrawn from the program 6 years earlier for personal reasons. After my dismissal I appealed the dismissal based on the medical emergency which effected my final grade. My appeal was denied, and was permanently dismissed. For two years, there was a legal dispute between me and AIU. Repeatedly they offered me reinstatement, for which I repeatedly refused. I utilized every legal means, including a federal lawsuit, which was dismissed without prejudice, and ordered to arbitration, which was listed in the enrollment agreement. The dispute went to arbitration and the ruling was in my favor, and AIU lost. The "award" was they ordered AIU to allow me to resubmit the assignment for which I received a failing grade due to the medical emergency. I insisted that I refused to resubmit the assignments and reinstatement. The arbitrator ignored my position and gave me 30 days in case I wanted to change my mind. I did not comply with the 30 day ruling and did not resubmit the assignments. I won the arbitration. I didn't receive any money, but at least I won. To those of you considering to enroll in AIU online, please consider this. In your enrollment agreement, there is an Arbitration Agreement Clause, in which you waive your right to sue. And if you do go to arbitration, you will not receive a monetary award. So think about it before you sign it, so you won't ave to go through what I did.

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2006

I began my studies at AIU online in November of 2003. I earned my Bachelor's Degree is Business Administration - graduating Magna Cum Laude. I completed my first MBA in Human Resource Management and my 2nd MBA in Strategy. When I graduated with my 2nd MBA - my salary was right under $60,000 in 2006. My salary is now right under $100,000.00 with more room to grow and improve. I loved AIU and the entire program. My Virtual Professors were very encouraging and my advisors were on top of me to make sure that I was successful.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2008

You get out of it - what you put into it. Some people will go to school and expect to be given a degree (not earned) the school is there to learn - yoiu need to put in the time and effort - I see other reviews and I dont get it - I attended AIU from the AA program all the way to Masters and sure there are some bumps on the road but nothing big, Most teachers care - present the material and answer your questions - you have to collaborate - Bottom Line do I earn more ? YES with a Masters Degree I would earn alot less than I do today. Program Manager at HP 12 years

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017

I just started this school on August 24,2015. I have to say I love it. I don't understand why people are complaining about the school itself. If you don't like it please feel free to go to another school of your choosing. I have learned a lot since starting. The tools offered here are essential to my learning. The instructor I have had so far has helped me when I needed it.I love Intellipath as well. I learn so many new things that I had not known already. It's all about Time Management and Planning ahead. If you don't do any of those things of course you will have a hard time. My second session starts on October 5, 2015. I thought I was only going to be getting one class but it turns out I will be getting 2 classes. One is English Composition, the other is Foundations of Criminal Justice. Instead of griping and complaining I took responsibility in planning ahead and applying Time Management skills. I created a calendar list of tasks/assignments that I have to do within each class and included the date those assignments were due by. I also was able to set a specific day and time in which I want to get my assignments started and completed. Doing this you can never go wrong and you will stay a step ahead instead of doing everything at the last minute. Although a challenge, in some regards, I am looking forward to learning more in my second session here at AIU and I would recommend this school to any one who is interested in pursuing a college degree. If you are not the type to read, research or write then this isn't your thing. There will be a lot of reading, writing and researching going on in the classrooms of AIU. All of this works for me as I am a homemaker with 3 children in school. It is time consuming but so what I have a lot of time on my hands and pursuing my college degree is something that I have always wanted to do.As I said before, complaining won't accomplish anything or get you anywhere. If you find that AIU is not up to your standards, go somewhere else but at the end of the day it will still amount to the same thing..WORK...you get back what you put into this. Hard work pays off. Skating by because it's an online campus is cheating yourself and you don't attain and/or retain knowledge that way. Wishing all of you the best. Regards!

Degree: Nursing

My college experience was pretty amazing! From thoughtful professors, to amazing other students. Going to college has been one of the best decision I have ever done, and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Degree: Non-Profit/Public/Organizational Management
Graduation Year: 2015

Ok but really NOT worth the money! Cost $30,000 for the MBA program but I can honestly say I walked away with little new information. Professors are knowledgeable but super lenient. And they charge you a "graduation fee" with no actual graduation...Don't waste your money!
