Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2006

I will start off by saying, you will get out of any educational program what you put in to it. My experience on ground was exceptional, the professors were very knowledgeable about the courses they were instructing and trust me, there were no grades being given away. Classmates who didn't put in the work, received falling grades and some were even put on academic probation, similar to any major university in the U.S. I've heard stories about other universities accepting the credits from AIU for transfer students and they may have some case of this, but I personally graduated and enrolled in a MBA program at RICE University without any issues. I know of other classmates who enrolled in graduate programs from Houston Baptist University and University of Houston without any issues. I feel the issue is a lot of students were looking for a easy ride (get something for doing nothing) and when it didn't pan out, their rebuttal is to trash the university. There are horror stories regarding every college or university on the planet, because all schools are not a good fit for everyone and finding the correct institution of higher learning for YOU is the key to having a successful experience. I have friends who've dropped out of division one schools, because the professors were just issuing busy work and the learning experience was about writing twenty page papers. To be fair, if you're employer doesn't place any value an AIU degree, then maybe the employer may not be a good fit for you. I work for a fortune 500 company and because I was able to implement what I learned at AIU in my job, other associates have been advised to attend AIU to advance their careers.

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

I earned my Associates degree with AIU in 2005, and returned to complete my Bachelor's in Business Administration. I've taken 100% of my classes online. The Admissions & Academic advisors have been awesome. They are attentive, professinal, and actually make you feel that they care about you. The instructors have ALL been great. I have nothing bad at all to say about this university. I've been able to take my time, and earn my degrees at my own pace. January 2019 I will receive my Bachelor's and February 2019 I will begin the Master's program. I'll recommend American InterContinental University to anyone.

Degree: Science & Math
Graduation Year: 2019

I completed my associates degree with AIU online in 2012. I just began my bachelors degree, again, 4 weeks ago. They are very flexible with your schedule and very understanding if an issue arises. Ive read some of these reviews Where people believe this is an easy place to get a degree. Do not be fooled! This is a very hard core in depth education and I have learned a lot. I have previous experience in law-enforcement and still learned a great deal. I would assume the people that are posting the negative comments are the very same people that are not doing well in their classes. Intellipath is something new for me as that was not available during my 1st degree. Many of my law-enforcement coworkers are also attending this college. Like I said its very flexible with your schedule but you have to put your nose in the books. The professors are very hands-on and the school genuinely cares about you. If you want a really good education I suggest you give this a try

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General

I love American InterContinental University. This is an awesome school and I had very knowledgeable Professors. I would recommend this school only to those who are serious about their education. AIU will not just pass you, you will have to work hard and earn your grade.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2020

I have been off and on with this University due to travel constraints for work and that of starting a family. I was able to stop classes and restart up a couple years later when things calmed down with little to no hassle. The Staff across the board has been terrific and helpful in all things even when i decided to change my major. They provided a detailed process and made it very painless. Overall the classes can be very fast passed but the level of information you receive is very well organized and presented compared to other Universities. All of the accreditation are good and i am satisfied with what i am paying for.

Degree: Project Management
Graduation Year: 2018

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.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

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.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2007

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.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2017

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!

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2012

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.
