"The format of the program was excellent, and well established especially since I am an adult learner. The cost was among the lowest. In addition the university was very helpfully, and made consolidation of all the college credits I had seem almost effortless. You see I first started college in 1991, and over the years as life happened I started and stopped college several times. As a career firefighter/paramedic I had lots of training that had only been evaluated by ACE for college equivalent credit, and American Military University/American Public University Systems granted some amount of credit(s) for all that training I had taken over the years including for my National Registry Paramedic. Of course now nearly all these types of programs are conduct in conjugation with a college, or university and students receive credit upon completion of these type of field course work when it is done through an accredited public safety training academy for fire, rescue, and police. Although most of the credits I was granted, along with prior college credits I had did not fit into the degree I choose it has proved invaluable and helped me with in my interactions within a diverse community of people."

"The good - Affordable. At $250 per credit hour (plus tech fee) APU is on par with a State University near me. Free textbooks, no additional cost. I have had no issued with the Financial Aid Department. It seems that they probably got their act together since a lot of the negative comments about Financial Aid are older . 8- Week courses are great. The professors I have had so far are good, engaging and provide decent feedback on my work. I wished they critiqued students' forum posts more as I think there can be illogical thinking or arguments student post and there is no attempt to correct them or point them in a direction. I have had positive experiences with the professors. I use RateMyProfessor.com to find out who is good and which are bad apples and pick accordingly. Students, mixed bag like in real college. There are intelligent students and not so intelligent ones. I feel like I do half the teaching with my forum posts by going above and beyond the course text and guidelines. I am still attending and have taken four courses so far after transferring 55 credits in, all were accepted by the way. Overall - APU is decent. I miss the live interaction and class dialogue that you get in a in person class. But if you are motivated and can stay on top of your assignments you will be ok."
