Degree: Intelligence, General
Graduation Year: 2017

I was initially concerned about the quality of education from an online for profit university. However, I found the majority of APUS classes to be the equivalent of graduate degree instruction from traditional on-campus universities. I found their instruction regarding research methodology to be superior to equivalent courses I received during an on-campus masters program. I found some of the material dated within the program which could be frustrating at times, but this was to be expected as APUS is a regionally-accredited civilian university which must use unclassified information and information which is in the public domain. I highly recommend APUS to anyone serving on active duty in the Armed Forces. The classes are easy to fit within a busy schedule, and the instructors are usually more than glad to work with you.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2013

Graduated in 2013 with Master or Arts in Criminal Justice. The jobs that you would think you are qualified for when having an advanced degree wont even call back. The classes were too easy and getting into the school was easy. I do regret going here and spending so much money on that degree and should have went somewhere else

APUS, great online school! It offers great range of majors and their schedules are very flexible, especially for people who has full time job. Academically, I am impressed by the interaction between Professor and students. Most professors of my classes are professional and knowledgeable. Also, you got your course material FREE.

I have recommended American Public University to every Soldier that I have come across. The staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. The professors are very aware of the military lifestyle and were accommodating with extensions were needed due to military training.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2017

American Public University System is an affordable and convenient option for students who would like to pursue a degree through distance learning. The courses are thorough and demanding, but their nature as online courses make it possible for students to fit their academic work into any schedule. If you are serious about learning, but do not want to have to mold your schedule around class times, then you should add APUS to your list of schools to consider.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2019

I have never had any issues with this school. I transferred in from a community college. It is reasonably priced. The classes are 8 weeks long. I've had some really great teachers. I joined student organizations and had the opportunity to join honor societies. This school is accredited and many military students attend.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2016

American Public University was an excellent school for me. I was active duty military the entire time that I attended the APU/AMU and the university did so much to accommodate me and my fellow military classmates. When I had to leave for a week or two at a time the professors would work with my schedule and approve extensions for my work. The entire time that I studied with this university I only had one science instructor that was difficult to work with. That is one out of 40 other amazing instructors and class experiences I had.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2014

American Military University (AMU) is an outstanding option if you are looking for an online college experience. AMU provided me with one of the largest selections of undergraduate and graduate degrees available online. There were numerous electives to go with each degree program, allowing me to choose electives that interested me and aligned with my degree program plan. As a career Soldier in the United State Army, AMU worked with me to adjust course requirements during times that I was deployed overseas to Iraq and Afghanistan. AMU has a diverse group of professors that are genuinely interested in making sure their students receive the best possible support during their educational experience. Many of my professors took the additional time to help map out career plans and offer advice on where to look for job opportunities within my degree field. I would highly recommend American Military University to anyone that is looking for a quality education experience.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2016

If you want to go to Wal-Mart to get a degree then go here. If you want a real education do not go here. It is a corporate university and everything is cookie cutter. All the faculty seem miserable and the support staff sound like they all work at Disney.

Degree: Space Systems Operations
Graduation Year: 2017

THe program was fantastic, all the classes were very well organized and any issues that arose were very easily taken care of or at least help was easy to find to fix said issues. Classroom instruction was great and very easy to follow. with all classes being online it is a bit of a challenge if that is not what you are used to. However, the first class in the program is a class specifically designed to get you used to working in an online environment
