Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2007

First I transferred into AIU, I attended this university from 2005 until 2007 and I graduated. I did a volunteer internship at my local county courthouse and I work in law enforcement at the same time. Excellent professors and I learned a lot. However, I tell most people you have to be self motivated, dedicated to studying alone and being very engaged in the online discussion just beyond getting a grade. I'm currently working in the federal government as a Manager and I have about 3 years with my agency. It's all about what you put into yoru studies and what you get out of the classes that you take. However, I recommend taking class at a brick and mortar school first before going online.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2017

AIU is an excellent opportunity to further your education. I have had an excellent student advisor who has been great support for me. The financial aid department will go above and beyond the call of duty to see you have everything needed. The professors were caring about my education!

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017

I only took a few courses online at this school...after talking to many students that have graduated from this school. Majority of them couldn't find a job after graduating and the interviewers said they've never heard about this school. So I decided to drop out, couple years later, looked at my student loans and it said I owed $16k!!! Tried making payments but I was only paying enough for the interest...by this rate I'll be paying for this for the rest of my life!!

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2012

American InterContinental University provides a great online undergraduate program. I attended class at a regular college campus before AIU and was so glad I transferred. Attending school online provided better schedule flexibility for work and other activities. Students are not required to attend lectures, but have access to watch them after the fact. In addition the course work at AIU is much different than any other college I attended previously. Rather than having tests and quizzes, the classes at AIU are primarily papers, presentations or projects. This type of coursework was much better for me because the coursework allowed more time to complete the work assigned, and did not require mass memorization. I would recommend AIU's online classes to anyone who needs schedule flexibility, and also has the discipline to complete the coursework on time. Since there is no physical class, it is up to the student to keep themselves motivated and completing the work based on the syllabus given.

Degree: Business Administration, Management and Operations, Other
Graduation Year: 2013

AIU Online is a great school and I recommend it to anyone who has a full time job that wants to further their education. My professors were great and very effective in their communication. My student advisers would always check in with me to see how i am doing or if i had any issues. This school does care about their students!

Degree: Italian Language and Literature
Graduation Year: 2018

The teachers and financial aid hate veterans. I have been trying to get FA for a year now, I send in the paper work it takes FA weeks to look at it and then they nit pick it and reject it. I have called them and been laughed at. The teachers grade veterans differently I had an A in one class and got one F on a paper and I went from an A to D. I got an F just because I did not go in depth enough when I responded to a post. this is just a few of things AIU has done. I would tell veterans DO NOT WASTE YOU GI BILL HERE.

American InterContinental Online was a great online program. The curriculum was great and the classes were pertinent to my career. Online access was very easy and quick response to questions. It greatly prepared me for my career and afforded me an opportunity to move up in my previous position.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2015

Their online program was great. Having the ability to pause, rewind, and review the lectures was extremely valuable. I earned my bachelors degree and got a job as a software engineer, now making twice as much as I was before starting college. The best part was that the material didn't focus on memorizing useless facts and obsolete techniques, but rather focused on the underlying fundamentals that technology is built on. All of the classes were challenging, and I had to retake Biology because the material was fairly difficult. At the end of the day, if your going into the Technology Sector, its critical to find the school that is the most up-to-date from a technology standpoint or you will end up learning about the algorithms that were used in the 1980s and 1990s being taught from some guy who learned everything he knows about computers from a book. 4 stars.
