"When researching weather or not to attend American National University I noticed several negative reviews that did not reflect my experience, so I felt I needed to speak out. American National University conducted my courses through zoom which gave me the chance every week to meet with other students in my program and my professors. The professors were knowledgeable and supportive in helping me understand the difficult information that I was able to learn with their help. I would highly recommend giving ANU a chance to impact your goals. If you want to be a biller and coder this is an affordable option to explore. If you don’t want to attend a physical campus but want face to face interaction this is the school for you."

"Do not go here! They take your money, every single term I start late because they somehow forgot to do something, messed up my schedule, or messed up my financial aid. In the beginning I looked up to a instructor in my field at the school. Little did I know they were on probation with my state for STEALING DRUGS FROM A PHARMACY THEY WORKED IN AS A PHARMACIST. But they can teach because who at this school actually cares, right? I was pursuing my Associates degree but I was so fed up I wanted to graduate sooner, so I switched to the diploma program. I have a hospital and retail pharmacy externship. But, guess what? I didn't get to go to a hospital for my externship. I got stuck at a retail chain for both of my externships. They tell you a week before all the requirements needed to start an externship, which includes paying out of pocket for a drug test that was due before you even started. This "school" is a joke. Instructors don't teach, don't know what they are doing, and don't answer your questions. I had to call my instructor and complain because my mid term and final were graded WRONG. I called and it took her a week to fix it. I enjoyed being a hybrid student. Having online and on campus classes. But halfway through they neglected to tell me my campus doesn't have on campus classes anymore. Please, do not go here. I ignored the reviews before I started and I wish I listened and didn't go here."

"PLEASE BE AWARE OF THEIR ACCREDITATION!!! I've completed my full 2 years of education with National College, currently ANU, and was told from a 4 year traditional school that none of my credits would transfer due to their accreditation. Although my instructors were amazing back then, I have had a difficult time moving forward with my education. I am being told that i have to complete a full 4 years and retake all of the courses in which I've already obtained an Associate's degree with. With book expenses and high tuition costs, I am waste deep in debt. ANU is not a business school, but a place of business. Please do not assume that employer's will hire you just because you have a degree. I cannot tell you how many times i was questioned about where i got my degree from, & in the same manner, was passed up for the job opportunity. The only thing that saved me in the end was experience that i had gained from a family business."

"I originally went to this school for cybersecurity then when the school lost the means of teaching it I switched majors. I started going for another major and had some hardships come up. I wanted to pursue the rest of my education and all was good till my very last term when they said I ran out of financial aid money. (They told me that my second degree would be fully paid for no need to borrow any money) They lied to me and now I wasted all my financial aid moneys on a school that I can't get my money back and I feel like a failure because I couldn't finish. If you were smart don't go here they messed me and my life up A LOT."

"Do not go to this school. I went to the Dayton campus. The school didnt tell what all I needed to start any of my extern ships until last minute then failed me for the course and it wasnt even my fault. For the hospital extern I had to have health insurance and my teacher knew that and still failed me even though theres proof of documentation that I dont have insurance and because of the they took my financial aid and now I cant even finish my last two classes and when I tried to talk to someone about it they said they dont have student services on there campus anymore and told me to call some number but they gave me the wrong number twice in a row. Its school is very unprofessional and I wasted my money and time on it."

"The campus I attended in Kentucky is a complete joke. I advise that nobody attend this private for profit University. They say they help with job placement, all jobs that were sent to me asked for at least 2 years experience in the field of work or to far away. I was in the first group to go through the combined phlebotomy and ECG technician program. There were three of us in the group. When we took the certification exams (both phlebotomy and ECG) we cheated and the instructor helped us cheat. Not only that the instructor had us take a picture of each question with answer options to make a study guide for future students in the program. Sorry but that is very unprofessional and unethical. We didn't need to cheat to pass the exam maybe teaching your students the material needed to pass exams would be a much better alternative. If I could give a negative amount of stars I would."

"Do not waste your time with university. I applied to do their Online Medical Office Professional(MOP) program. Thought it was great there was a campus in my town, Yet it was all online and fit my schedule, I went full time, 3 classes per 10 week term, took me 8 months. Should have a diploma this month for it because I passed all requirements. What was interesting to me is, When I enrolled I had all the support, They were all helpful at the campus,called me etc. I was like Wow, this is great. A small university, I will get all kinds of one on one treatment it will be so much better than a large university. I recieved federal financial aid and the pell grant. When I met with their financial aid advisor, they did not have an onsite person. it was done over Zoom. and I had to e sign all these documents. My financial Aid was right down to the cent of what they said my tuition was every term. I Found that to be pretty weird. Because I had went to school before and always ended up with a refund of quite a bit. Once I was enrolled. The help stopped. I couldnt get a hold of nobody. If I would email, they would not reply. If I would go there in person they were busy or would have to call someone and find out the answer. Once they get your money, they dont care about you. My last term started in August, one of the teachers was terrible!!! I would email her and she would take a month to reply. did not reply to emails until it was week of Surveys. I had what I thought was an A in the course, she never graded anything the same week. some things we had 3 attempts but I never knew if I needed a 2nd or 3rd try. I ended up with a C in that course, you had to have a C to pass the course. Had I known where my grade stood all term long, she was even at my local university and I could not meet with her or contact her. I tried to reach someone who was in control over those kids of complaints, I was hung up on. I did get a call back and when I called back and left him a message he never again returned my call, even though I would call and leave him messages. Then out of the blue today I get a email threatening to sue me saying I owe them $2500 and I missed these payments and they reported me to the credit agencies. I finished my program in October. They take all your financial aid, down to the penny and then do this to you. do research before you pick a school."

"Started the degree program in 2015 only to find out that they changed the program in my last semester, meaning I had to take extra classes. For the CPT coding ! and 2 classes, the instructor didn't even teach us any of the coding concepts. She literally just assigned the work. After several complaints, finally in CPT 2, the regular coding teacher had to go back and teach the basics and rush the advanced portions. Then for the required externship, I was told that this was planned in advance, well of course it wasn't and they waited until last minute. So, I got stuck working at the CFI building for LGH. Biggest wast of time ever. Instead of getting a full week of coding, I got stuck indexing charge sheets the entire. And after all of this, they had the nerve to try and pressure me into taking the RHIT examination. This was an exam that I knew I wasn't prepared for, and so, I didn't take it. Then career services, which was guaranteed to help us find a job after graduation, made me a half resume and I haven't heard from them since. Same for the HIM program director who was pretty good to me throughout my time there. As soon as she found I didn't take that exam, she dropped me like a hot potato. Do not attend this school. All they want is your money. It is fraud to the highest degree. You have been warned!!!"

"I feel that my degree was a joke. The University did not prepare me for my career. My professional clinical hours were bounced from site to site and I had very few required cases. There was only one instructor Mr. D. that taught me anything and kept me going to finish my degree. I would not pay a dime to go to this school. I kept going only because I had my GI bill. And when the school started closing campuses and losing students. They started issuing refunds. You can find a cheaper and better education anywhere else."
