"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."

"My Business Administration Degree was the best thing i could of done for myself and family. AIU was a GREAT school. I will be going for my MBA next at American Intercontinental University. It's never to late to build on your education. Hope this helps someone out there that's on the verge of going back to school but is still unsure."

"I really enjoyed the courses that AIU had to offer. It was a school that was easy to work into my life as a full-time employee, mother, wife and not to mention all the activities that come alone with family. I found the instructors to be very concerned with teaching the materials and were always available to me when I needed to reach out for additional help. The group projects were one of my favorite things to do. I was wondering how working in groups would work when students are in different states, but it was quite easy. With that experience I am now pursuing a job in project coordination/management. I never realized that this was an interest to me until working in groups here at AIU."

"I attended this university from 2011 - 2013 to get my bachelor's degree. I attended a local community college prior to enrollment for my associates degree. The school was extremely expensive costing me around $32,000 which should have been closer to $24,000 they told me. It was writing intensive a discussion board assignment due every Wed, responses to two classmates and a weekly paper usually 2-5 pages in length, and some classes seemed repetitive. There were literally times when I had an assignment due in one class that almost mirrored an assignment due for another class. It wasn't easy but it wasn't hard either. I did learn quite a lot about business, the economy and my field of human resources that I hadn't previously known. It required a lot of research to complete the assignments and I had to acclimate myself to a school work schedule. The biggest cons for me were the costs, ignorance of classmates and lack of responsiveness from teachers. There were students who would post incoherent and grammatically incorrect discussion board assignments and receive an A. In fear of receiving bad grades on group assignments I would often volunteer to do the editing because most of my classmates should have never earned a high school diploma based on their (there, they're) writing skills! When I finished AIU I was making less than $40k a year working in the HR field. Within 9 months I accepted a position earning $14K more a year which was made possible due to my recent degree and 9 years experience in my field. I decided to earn my masters degree at a traditional college in my home state and attend an online degree program. It was a much cheaper option for me. I was accepted into the program without any problems so my degree wasn't worthless as previous people indicated. My overall experience was positive but it was the hard work I put in as well. My best advice is to weigh all costs and decide what is best for you. Make good decisions about your career path and you can make the most of your degree."

"The classes were decent, as long as you dedicate time to learning just as you would with a brick and mortar school. The affordability is terrible, the amount of loans owed to this school are the equivalent of an Ivy League school. You also have to use Sallie Mae if your loans are not all covered by the Federal Government (they won't be), and they are terrible as well. I have yet to receive my diploma or transcripts (your transcripts, even your first copy, are not included in your tuition) even though I graduated 4 years ago. Repeated calls to the university do very little, they are very unresponsive. All in all, this university was very misleading, over priced, unhelpful, and seems to be a total scam. STAY AWAY!"

"This is an excellent school! I found everyone to be helpful and kind. I would recommend this school to anyone that needs flexibility with their classes. My student adviser kept in touch with me throughout my entire program. I am considering going back to AIU for my masters."

"My experience with AIU was great! I attended school using their online program. The student portal was very user friendly and there was a great array of resources. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and available to help. There was so much support throughout the process I always felt connected and never felt like I was missing out on anything that would have been available if I had been attending on campus. I am 52 and currently completing a bachelors in Health Care Management. My enrollment counselor was extremely encouraging and instrumental in helping me to determine the direction I should go in. He dedicated a lot of time and went the extra mile to help me with my decision and he was 100% right in his counsel. The curriculum was and is excellent and very challenging. When I decided to go back and get my bachelors degree there was no second thought about what school I would attend. I am now almost half way through my program and again I am extremely impressed with all that is available to me, especially how attentative all the faculty and staff have been throughout this process. I highly recommend this school to anyone thinking about attending or returning to college."

"AIU is not worthy. The admission associates will tell you the best about the school and will make everything easy so people get register to get commisions. AIU will put students in huge Debts. Most of the time student don't even know the loans AIU is putting under the student name. People run away from AIU"
