"AIU is about discilpline, reaching for your star and building that indiviual you are to become! AIU makes it your responsibility to conquer and to overcome what you did not know who you really were to become. I thank my God , because before applying at this college, God had already assigned this leadershiip ,staff and professors to educate me. Now I have caught my star and to walk towards my valuable journey."

American Intercontinental University isn't that great - 2/27/2018
Degree: Information Technology

"I haven't graduated yet, but I feel as if though this is still not quite the school I have any business attending, I only did this to get experience for a job and right now my job hunt sucks and it did last year and it probably will this year. Why did I even bother dealing with this school; because nothing is ever good enough for them. I print out a 4506-T "Non-filing," form and shortly after my student page is shut down  - nothing there, I can't log in and I can't do anything as it pertains to my classes, they sighted me because I didn't have anything to offer to them, of course I know that in 2018, it will be my last year attending online school, on campus is much better, just take classmates, students and professors talking down to you; trust me it's way better than getting no responses from a goofy school like AIU! I can't take them, I gotta, go vomit!"

"For the past 3 years that I have been with American Intercontinental University, I have found their online learning environment to be very supportive with dedicated staff from admissions, student advising, accounts, financial aid, technical support, library, lectures who demonstrate high degree of respect and ethics as they ensure that students have excellent learning experience. Courses offer theoretical and practical real-life experience in the contemporary business/ market world. Students suggestions/inputs are taken regularly and feedback provided promptly and implementation done for improvement. I highly recommend this institution to those who have the desire to start or further their learning. There is a lot of work to be done by students and one must be ready to be disciplined in meeting the deadlines and/or seek help where required. As the University fraternity do their part, let the students take advantage get what the Serious University offers."

"I transferred into AIU from another graduate program and I had 32 graduate units to transfer with yet AIU took none of them so I was forced to complete their program without any transferred units. AIU doesn't help it'd graduates with employment and they are difficult when requesting your transcripts."

"This school is a joke. I was having issues and they just kept begging me to stay even though it wasn't possible to finish my classes with my day to day schedule. I was told my tuition was being covered by my grants, only to find out i missed too many days with work and with my daughter being on life support (NO THEY DO NOT CARE NOR DO THEY HAVE A WAIVER FOR THESE ISSUES). After they withdrew me i was still charged for classes I never even started after specifically being told i wouldnt be charged. They are just in it for the money and care about absolutely no one."

"I started at American Intercontinental University in August of 2007. This is a great online school. I'm a little disappointed that I could not find a job in my field. Otherwise, the professors were very skilled at teaching their disciplines online. It is very important to note that the courses require intensive reading, research, and writing. When I attended, there were no exams, quizzes or tests, but maybe American Intercontinental University changed over the past 9 years since I graduated. I really enjoyed the courses; I found that I am more of an active learner; therefore, online education was the perfect fit for me. Just remember that online education requires self-discipline, and more interaction with your classmates and professors in the chat room. I like the flexibility American Intercontinental University offers; that is, you get to do your assignments at a time convenient for you. Just remember to stay focused and on track when completing your assignments; otherwise, you will fall behind. I never procrastinated. I always turned in my Discussion Boards and Individual Project assignments on time. My professors graded fairly and I had no problems with the ones who gave me feedback on my assignments. The professors do care about the students, but you have to do the work and submit your assignments on time. I gave three stars regarding being satisfied with the degree program and I was not happy because even after graduating with honors, I still could not land a decent paying job in my field. My admissions adviser was very supportive of my educational pursuits and even encouraged me to press on no matter how challenging it became. To those of you who are considering attending American Intercontinental University Online, remember you will have to make sacrifices, but remember to ask questions when you do not understand and get help immediately from your professor. Thank you for reading my review!"

"First I transferred into AIU, I attended this university from 2005 until 2007 and I graduated. I did a volunteer internship at my local county courthouse and I work in law enforcement at the same time. Excellent professors and I learned a lot. However, I tell most people you have to be self motivated, dedicated to studying alone and being very engaged in the online discussion just beyond getting a grade. I'm currently working in the federal government as a Manager and I have about 3 years with my agency. It's all about what you put into yoru studies and what you get out of the classes that you take. However, I recommend taking class at a brick and mortar school first before going online."

"AIU is an excellent opportunity to further your education. I have had an excellent student advisor who has been great support for me. The financial aid department will go above and beyond the call of duty to see you have everything needed. The professors were caring about my education!"

"I only took a few courses online at this school...after talking to many students that have graduated from this school. Majority of them couldn't find a job after graduating and the interviewers said they've never heard about this school. So I decided to drop out, couple years later, looked at my student loans and it said I owed $16k!!! Tried making payments but I was only paying enough for the this rate I'll be paying for this for the rest of my life!!"

"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."
