American InterContinental University Reviews - Bachelor's in BusinessSee reviews of all programs at American InterContinental University
This college is a scam. l attend the college for about a year. It's coslty, does not require real work to pass the classes. If you want an easy degree this is the college for you. That's the main reason I even attended this college because pretty much the advisior told me I didn't have to do work. It was correct I got A's and B's. I was attending school and then took a break. Upon coming off the break AIU kept calling harrassing me to log in to my classes when I wasn't enrolled in one for September 2018. I told the advisor I would enroll back in October courses and use my TA for those courses, because I was still trying to get TA cleared for the school. Once it was cleared I enroll in the classes that I wanted to take with them. The advisor advised me I couldn't just enroll in the classes I wanted to take because they make my degree plan for me and I had to follow it. Long story short they enrolled me in a class for September 2018 a week after classes started, to supposely avoid being disenrolled in thier college. I didn't open the module until I made sure that it was cover by my finanical aid. Once I called and verified it was cover by my finanical aid I started the class. Anyways I tried accesssing my transcripts, but an warning appeared that could not be generated due to a balance. So I called the finanical advisor and questioned him he told me not to worry. Eventually the warning went away and I was able to access my transcriopts. So upon completion of that class again I tried to access my transcripts it read the same warning. I messenger the financial advisor and now he's talking about it's showing that for the October classes that AIU automatically enrolled me in. My financial aid wouldn't cover the October classes and if I dropped them I would not be charged. I told him then drop me from the classes. I had to call the degree advisor. Ok, to easy right? NO! She was out the office and had a sit in advisor. I requested to be dropped from the class and she said ok. The following week I was dropped from the classes before they started after numerous calls! October goes by and we're well into November. AIU emails me talking about called them concerning a debt. I called, they state I owe $700 for classes. So I'm like what classes because I disenrolled from you college in October. Lady states oh, oh well this is for September. How is it for September when the class I took, I was told it was covered with finanical aid. Then her rude self continued to say no you requested to use TA and it didn't cover. The finanical aid wasn't applied for. How? liar when I called and was informed by the advisor that the financial aid I had did cover the class before I opened it. So not only are you lying about me saying I wanted to use TA but now you're saying you all blatantly lied and said it was covered. Then she preceeds to say I have all the notes. Well you and you collegues are lying. Regardless I have the email saying I wanted to use TA for October classes and not September, that you all lied and said it was covered by financial aid, so try again. My whole objective was to get a degree, but because of my schedule I couldn't attend college. The only pros of this school is that: - The advisor didn't lie about the classes you don't have to put in much work to acheive an A or B. - The modules you continously take to improve your score with little to no understanding of the subject. - Its convenient if your schedule is full The cons: - They will lie and say you owe an balance after lying saying the classes are covered fully by financial aid just to get you to attend - They constantly call your phone while you're enrolled which is annoying because you already know I'm gonna pass the class with an elementary paragraph response so stop it. - They violate the principles of excellence agreement
I earned my Associates degree with AIU in 2005, and returned to complete my Bachelor's in Business Administration. I've taken 100% of my classes online. The Admissions & Academic advisors have been awesome. They are attentive, professinal, and actually make you feel that they care about you. The instructors have ALL been great. I have nothing bad at all to say about this university. I've been able to take my time, and earn my degrees at my own pace. January 2019 I will receive my Bachelor's and February 2019 I will begin the Master's program. I'll recommend American InterContinental University to anyone.
I have had a good INDEPENDENT experience. What I mean by that is. Student advisers aren't genuine, so understand you are on your own. The material is good I have learned a lot and although I have not finished yet, I do have employers willing to work with me until I graduate. The courses are useful and gratefully there are many resources to help you succeed. It is true they are only helpful in the beginning. Some of the professors don't answer emails and will not give you feedback so you are pretty much self-teaching. But that has nothing to do with the school itself. The program is for self-starters and people who are self-driven. Just don't take anything personal, don't expect much from an "adviser" and some of the professors. Some of the teachers are very attentive and care about your development. Just stick to it.
I love American InterContinental University. This is an awesome school and I had very knowledgeable Professors. I would recommend this school only to those who are serious about their education. AIU will not just pass you, you will have to work hard and earn your grade.
I would like to start out by saying that this school start out like they care. My students Advisor was the rudest most arrogant person Ive ever dealt with concerning school. I asked for someone to call me back because I would to talk to someone in regards to him being rude to me. I have still not received a call back. Mind you they called a million times when it was time to start.
I have received my Associate Degree in 2015 and will be finishing my Bachelor 10/2018. For me this school was the best choice. I tried the brick and mortar school they did not work well for me. I have been pleased with my program, I have received the assistance I need and I am able to focus on classwork.
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.
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!
Good afternoon, I went to AIU in 2012 and was supposed to Graduate in 2015 in a degree in Business management but do to the high cost and all the loads I had to take I was not able to finish. I have called the school leaving messages trying to see the cost so that I can get my Transcript but have not got a call back. I don't know it this was all worth it because I get paper in the mail saying a I all this money to pay back.
The staff is very friendly and helpful, the coarse load isn't to hard or overwhelming and the teachers are very knowledgeable.
