AIU (campus) Reviews
GO TO THE CAMPUS TALK TO REAL PEOPLE AND THEY WILL TELL YOU TO RUN FOR YOUR LIFE! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE MAJORITY OF EMPLOYERS WILL NOT HIRE YOU IF THIS IS THE SCHOOL IS ON YOUR RESUME , ONCE I FINALLY DROPPED AIU/ AMERICAN INTERCONTINENTAL UNIVERSITY FROM MY RESUME THATS WHEN I WAS ABLE TO ACTUALLY GET AN ACTUAL CAREER. AND NOT A JOB.
Before enrolling I never had any experience in the field of I.T. so I drilled the counselors on my prospects to getting a good job after graduation. My issue was, with only basic knowledge of I.T. related information, how could they teach me to magically be an I.T. professional? The counselor literally quilted me into enrolling saying "You're over 40 and should FINALLY get your degree!" Well I NEVER got a job in I.T. It has been over 12 years now and I couldn't tell you anything about I.T., Networking, etc. I did learn about web design...with the cheapest program imaginable, MICROSOFT FRONTPAGE! Not DREAMWEAVER or something more advanced! Basically, the education was not up to par with what I needed to learn in I.T. so I was never worthy of a good job in the field. I would have had to get more training, which was doable, but more expensive. I just wish the training was not so rushed and the curriculum was more conducive to teaching all the levels of training that could be useful in future technology. Example: In Programming, they never taught C+. They taught VB.NET! USELESS! And now...they're not even in Los Angeles anymore. I'm up to my neck in Student loan debt. I do not recommend this school for I.T.! RUN!
Since graduating I wouldn't say my degree has hindered not helped me. I was able to find a decent career in the field I didn't study. Now I'm looking for another college to attend. It was fun while it lasted though. Nevertheless, the school is not a complete waste of time but I think if you want a success you have to have an appetite for education. At this point, I crave success. I'm not satisfied until I get my masters degree.
I have been a Argosy Online Masters degree student for two and half years...
Thank what you wish, but a mysterious $3000.00 debt occured just as I had been told I would graduate. I was told two classes ago I was done and would graduate in Mid June 2011. In May, I was told I had two more classes to go again.
I had to withdraw due to the mysterious $3000,for they were going to lock me out.
I am on financial aid, they managed my funding, and they messed it up bad.
I will not be able to finish, but this two and a half years has been a nightmare.
I noticed that for reviews of on campus students, this school is great, but for online participants, it really is a joke, a very very harmful joke...
By the way for all you doubters, I am consistantly an A-B student, yet the school has totally disregarded my complaints. Out of sight out of mind, that is what this schools moto should be.
There has hardly been a consistant methodology in this madness...
Go at your own risk, and if it goes bad no matter how hard you work and no matter how well you perform, don't say you were not warned!!!
