Allied American University Reviews
I was under the impression that I graduated from an accredited school.However, this school does not meet the criteria of any CA Cal State Universities. I wasted three years of my life at this so called school. I'm trying to attend a Cal state and my diploma is useless.
So far, the"degree" I earned is pretty useless where I live. I should have just gone to POST and not worried about the degree! My first year was great and all of the instructors were fantastic! Then when I got the news that they would be closing, everything changed. I no longer had a student advisor. The "professors" were rude and immature. Even the Provost had no business being in the position she was in! I can't even apply to some jobs because my "degree" doesn't count for anything!
The school was very good unfortunately it closed down. I learned so much. The staff was very good always making sure the help needed was provided. Also they would check up on you on a weekly basis making sure you were setting your goals. I just didn't like that assignments were not always submitted through turn it in.
They screwed up my FASFA and i now "owe" $590 that my FASFA should have covered and are refusing to fix it. Teachers were terrible. And some of them would refuse to accept work when it was correct. The school is not helpful with anything and everyone is rude. Then they send you a $590 bill 3months after a class that should have already been paid for befor you took the class and they dont properly orginize the "bill" and then speak to you as if you are an incompetent child.
The staff is nice, but the classes are way to expensive, especially since the school only has national accreditation. Credits most likely will not transfer to a regional school. If you are looking for a decent school with national accreditation, your better off looking at schools like Ashworth College, or Penn Foster. Both have been around longer than allied, and as someone who has attended all three schools allied is at the bottom of the list.
Not the absolute worst, but definitely one of the worst schools I've ever attended. DO NOT be allured by the prospect of an accelerated program. Cons: The accelerated programs they offer literally CRAMS a 16 week term into 8 weeks; the course work is thus ASTRONOMICAL!!! You have quizzes, multiple chapter readings, discussion posts, written homework assignments and 2-3 page research papers due every single week. All for one class, I shit you not! Pros: The staff is, from my experience, actually very nice.
I am very happy with Allied American University. My course is accessible to me anytime. All of my assignments are due Sunday night by midnight. This works very well with my schedule since I commute to the office and drive approximately 2-3 hrs per day and work full-time while in school. I have tried other online and on campus school sand so far this is the best one. I read multiple reviews online and don't typically write reviews, but noticed many of the Allied American University reviews were mixed-up with some sort of poorly run massage school in another state. Please do not confuse that other school with Allied American University. They are different schools! Allied is great and it's the first time in a long time I felt like I could really do this. I know this will benefit me in so many ways and am very happy here. Also, tuition here is much lower than other online schools!
