Student & Graduate Reviews

4.5 out of 5 stars
Josh - 5/9/2013
Degree: Computer Programming
Graduation Year: 2013
"YES, AIU is accredited. Would I have rather attended a ground campus and gotten a "REAL" college experience, yes; however, since I waited until I was in my 30s to go back to college, I don't think this option would have worked itself into my "family of seven" and "70+ hour a week job" lifestyle, and unless my soon-to-be Bachelors in Information Technology helps me to develop a working time machine to go back to my high school days and start over again, then I am content with the online format.The accelerated program is not for the faint of heart or those with a schedule like mine; if you are wondering why graduation rates at AIU are low, it's probably because those particular students couldn't hack it. I did not come back to college expecting it to be easy, however; I came back to get my degree because I want a better life for myself and my family, so I deal with the pressure and don't blame the school because I am the one who messes up if I fail to accept my commitment to my education.As a reward for my perseverance, in just five more courses I expect to graduate with a perfect 4.0 (as long as I don't flub any assignments!!!). I have had a few teachers I personally felt could have done a better job, and I only rated the job placement services low and stated the degree has not helped my career because I have not graduated and had a chance to use them yet, but otherwise the experience has been great.Maybe your situation is different and this school would not be a good fit for you, but as far as I'm concerned the quality of the education is on par with anywhere else I might have chosen to attend so the experience has been right for me. So if you're on the fence about going back to school and interested in taking online courses that won't interrupt your current lifestyle, take heart in knowing that AIU is definitely worth considering, good luck in your future studies, and God bless!"
