AIU is a confusing place and it's difficult to get people to give you a direct answer to a question. You'd better go over the Student Manual with a fine tooth comb if you want to avoid problems. Even then, you may still have to force somebody at AIU to answer your questions. After reading the student manual, you are likely to have more questions than you started out with. The manual is not written to help students it's written by lawyers to cover AIU's ass. I had to drop a class because of a neck injury. I called my admissions advisor and asked how I would go about dropping the class and she wouldn't tell me. She tried to talk me out of dropping. Then she said, "I'll call you right back." She didn't call back and my attempts to call her failed. I ended up calling aroung to various departments and finally got somebody to tell me who to call. Because of the nonsense I lost $658.24. I'm looking for another University. The parent company of AIU owns lots of online schools. Go to careered.com to see the list if you want to avoid them.
One of my reasons for attending American Intercontinental University Online was the quality of education i received, along with business courses which helped me to focus more on learning important concepts in addition to developing college-level writing skills.
The coursework emphasized online learning modules such as Discussion Boards, along with Individual Projects, and Group Projects. The group projects I had for each course taught me the importance in working on a project with others as a team, and this skill is important in the workplace. In addition, learning tools such as multimedia presentations, live chats, and the library were all resources that helped me to become a successful student.
The interaction between my professors and classmates was always professional and interesting. The discussion forums invited me the opportunity to share my insights with other classmates.
My overall experience with AIU was more than a positive one. From the time I was accepted all the way to graduation, the team of faculty members, advisors were by my side and was very supportive of my educational pursuits.
Unfortunately I had a very unpleasant experience with the staff at AIU. I found that all that were employed there, lacked any sense of communication between departments. I was called 4-5 times a day by different individuals leaving me the same messages, to things I had already taken care of. I actually turned my phone on silent so that it wouldn't annoy me so much. At the end of a long month of back and forth miscommunication I called it quits... It's to bad that I was never refunded my admissions fee. I do NOT recommend attending AIU, however I am not giving up on Online Education!
I do not regret for attending American Intercontinental University for the past 3 years and I am about to complete my bachelor business administration degree concentrating healthcare management next month. I enjoyed learning from every courses because students and instructors gave their excellent insights on a topic or a subject diligently and meaningful. Every department is easy to navigate and easier to obtain information where a student seeks for help and the answers are usually returned within less than 24 hours. Especially, the Financial Aid department, they are straightforward and honest and aids student with the finance with ease. Classmates and professors interactions are respectful and professional. The tools that I have used online are the textbooks, library that contains subjectsâ€™ archives, articles and journals, websites, and instructorsâ€™ PowerPoint presentations, and classroom materials. My overall experience at American Intercontinental University is fulfilled and worthy! A.I.U. can make your education delicious!
I love education and I have wanted to upgrade myself for a long time. American Intercontinental University provided me an opportunity to higher education that fits my busy schedule. Friendly environment, knowledgeable and caring professors that helped me to achieve my goal. It was a wonderful experience, thank you AIU.
