Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2019

I have read reviews prior to attending AIU, yes many are negative but a few are positive.I will weigh in with the positive reviews. As a transfer student from Strayer University (I have taken 3 classes there), I disagree that AIU is less than desirable or subpar. At Strayer U I had nothing but papers to write, and if it were not for my Strayer experience (3.3 GPA) transferring into AIU it would not have prepared me for coursework here. Presently as a transfer student, I have 3 As and a B under my belt with 3 more classes to go. AIU and Strayer are both good schools and I would recommend both, however, Strayer is more expensive. I am not a stranger to independent study and/or hard coursework, writing papers is my educational background. It only works if you are willing to work towards your future. So far my experience is a good one.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2017

I see a lot of bad reviews, but I was extremely happy with my education at AIU. I attended AIU Houston and I had a wonderful journey the only thing was the cost of education it is expensive, but I have not had any problems finding a job I currently work for a global testing company and my salary is knocking at 6 figures as a Staff Accountant now I do have experience in the career field I chose to go to school for so that makes a difference in employers decision to hire you. From my experience in corporate I have not had anyone look down on my degree they checked my work history and I was knowledgeable enough to pass my interviews. I can remember one employer asked where the school was located to see if I went online or on campus and I still got the job. Some employers do verify if it is an accredited school and since AIU is accredited there shouldn't be a problem. I went to an on-campus school recently for my MBA and didn't like it so I switched back to AIU, but this time online. LOVE AIU I sure hate to see others had a bad experience. As far as career services they do help with your resume because I had a career services aid help me with my resume and they have gotten better, although I found my job on my own through Glassdoor and other sites.

Degree: Marketing - MBA
Graduation Year: 2011

I had a great experience. Working full time and attending classes was one of the most challenging things I've ever done. But, it helped get me into and prepare me for my career in digital marketing. My courses really helped shape how I approach business challenges and problem solve, which is one of the reasons why I have climbed the ranks as quickly as I have at my company.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2018

I have been in school since 2004 on and off. I have experienced a lot of classroom environments and different schools both brick and mortar and online. AIU is probably my favorite given how many tools they give you to learn and collaborate. The professors actually care. An here's a headline many under advertise: NO TESTS/MIDTERMS/FINALS! You heard that right. No filling in bubbles or googling test answers. They have what's called Intellipath which is like a lab. You are given access day one of class. Nothing is due until the last day of class, however, it helps to keep up with the materials. Intellipath can be done multiple ways, but they allow you to improve your score to 100%. You can suck at certain sections, but work through them to improve your score. Even better, if you know the knowledge area, you get credit for knowing it so it eliminates old lessons you already know. The grading system is geared towards participation and discussion. LOTS of group projects will be assigned and you will pull your hair out because despite being IT students, many don't even bother to check their student email or care to participate until week 4 (the week it's due). However, unlike most schools, AIU does offer plenty of tools for collaborative work to occur. I can say their portal is actually designed by user interface experts that got real input from users, and they are constantly improving. My only gripe with the school is financial aid. They are horrible at explaining things. Be persistent and you will find the answers you need. Most complaints I read on here are from people who might not have opened their eyes and explored outside of their comfort zone (or haven't scrolled down?). Live chats often provide assignment clarification. Also, a teacher is more willing to work with you if you keep an open line of communication. Attending an online program is a lot of work. It requires effective time management skills and work ethic. If you aced other schools by filling in bubbles, I'll recommend you search elsewhere. If you were like me and are intimidated by brick and mortar cs classes I highly recommend you give this schools a shot.

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2018

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.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2007

American InterContinental Online was a great online program. The curriculum was great and the classes were pertinent to my career. Online access was very easy and quick response to questions. It greatly prepared me for my career and afforded me an opportunity to move up in my previous position.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

As a current student I have to say that to be accredited a school goes through the proper channels. I have been to other online programs. If they are out of state the tuition is utterly ridiculous. I decided on this school after having a great experience with another online degree program from another school. I did some research and began my program here last year. I had to opt. out and after looking at a few other schools decided to return and complete my Bachelors in Business with a Project Management Specialty here. I'm a little past the half way mark in my degree program. My Experience so far has been a good one. I had to decelerate my classes from 2 every 5 weeks to 1 because my schedule is so demanding but my instructors are encouraging. I have not heard much from this advisor not too pleased with her but the one I had prior to exiting the school was wonderful. Overall its a good school. I like the intellipath and the tools they give. You will do as well as you apply yourself to this program. I am doing this because I already have the career I want I'm in it but in order to move upwardly into management this degree will help me get there. Keep focused and if you're in it then you're in it. No one can discount your education unless you allow it.
