    It's a good school for someone with a family to take care of, someone with an extremely busy life, career-switchers, professional development students, small or home business owners, or those who want to work full-time and obtain their degree quickly,

    Tips for prospective students

    Five weeks can go by quickly; make sure you stay on top of your assignments.

    Bang for the buck

    Online colleges are pretty expensive; however, the good thing about this college is that they incorporate your books into the tuition automatically. So, I since I am a graphic design student, I didn't have to worry about purchasing books or the technological media like Adobe Suite because they supplied it for me. They ship your materials right to your mailbox or front door way before your classes begin. I just wish the college was a bit cheaper.

    Am enjoying being here

    Yes, I would say so. I have new network contacts via the Virtual Campus Common and most of the students in my classes have progressed with me throughout my degree discipline which helps me get to know them a bit better even though its online.

    Am learning a lot

    The online program is pretty good. I'm a full-time student, but I can have the option of having one class or two classes if I chose to. The sessions are pretty quick, like 5 week sessions, but because it is accelerated, you are in college and out with your degree in no time. The course work is adequate enough to learn the material well, but not overburdening on your personal life.

    Great for these types of students

    AIU Online is great for student's that drive on being independent and who love finishing their work in short periods of time. AIU Online is also great for students that have a hectic life revolving around work, home, children, nonprofit organizations, and school. Since AIU offers programs online, students don't have to waste their work time with commute time and they don't have to live on campus. Students who like using their time efficiently are great candidates for AIU Online.

    Tips for prospective students

    1) Make sure you have a back up internet source in case their is loss of electricity or computer malfunctions, such as using a computer at the local library or going to a friend or relative's residence to do school work. 2) Be committed to finishing your work in the given time frame. Since the average class only lasts five weeks, it is very important that you finish each week of work on time. 3) Become aquainted with your advisors and professors. It is their job to help you out and make your quest to academic success as smooth as possible. They do a magnificent job and are happy to help.

    Bang for the buck

    At first, AIU Online may seem to be quite expensive. However, the cost of a degree is very similar to that of four year colleges. The difference is that the cost of a four year degree or a Bachelors degree is squeezed into a much tighter time frame. For example, a student may pay $40,000 to achieve a Bachelors degree in four years. Whereas, a student at AIU Online would pay the same amount for 2 1/2 years of education, and they would still receive the same degree. Oh, and in case your wondering, AIU Online is accredited by the Higher Learning Association and is a member of the North Central Association.

    Am enjoying being here

    The most enjoyable aspect of AIU Online is the ability to work quickly and independently. A student can achieve an Associates degree in less than two years and a Bachelors degree in less than three years. Another enjoyable aspect is the small class sessions and their flexibility. With each course, there are either one or two live chat sessions per week. These are beneficial but not mandatory. If for some reason the student could not attend a chat session, the sessions are archived and available to see whenever desired. Flexibility is always a plus.

    Am learning a lot

    American InterContinental University (AIU) Online is very beneficial for students who are very self-driven and independent individuals. Luckily, the first class that students attend at AIU Online is Academic and Professional Success. This class helps the student become aware of their personality types and personal learning style. This is just the first step on the students' path to success. After the student learns how to take advantage of their personal learning styles, he/she is given course materials that have the option to change according to his/her learning styles. This option is given with every course and is very helpful. The resources at AIU Online help the student independently reach their academic goals.

    Great for these types of students

    If you're well disciplined and really determined then you'll succeed in this school. The virtual campus is an awesome tool. I think being disciplined is the MAIN thing. If you like small classes and quick pace learning then this is for you. Students who enjoy learning on their own and are a little independent would succeed in this school.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you choose online school then you have to be really motivated and disciplined. You're going to have a lot of leisure so it'll be up to you to keep up with your work.

    Bang for the buck

    It is a little high priced. At least for me it is, considering my financial state. But all in all, its not that expensive. The student advisers are there to make it so its feasible for you financially. The school has a lot to offer at a mediocre price so its not that bad.

    Am enjoying being here

    I love taking online classes here. The teachers are great. Very helpful. Its doesn't take forever for me to get a response when i have a question. The classes are also small so you'll get to know everybody. I really don't have any complaints.

    Am learning a lot

    I am learning more than I thought I would. This school requires you to do a lot of research. Whether you are in a group or doing an individual project. There are also online libraries you can learn from. I make sure I use every tool they have to offer so I can learn as much as possible.

    Campus Safety

    5 star rating. When an individual walks through any door there is front desk personnel and a security guard there to check ids or have one sign-in. You will feel secured at AIU-Atlanta. Inside as well as outside.

    Greek Life

    AIU-Atlanta does not offer sororities nor fraternaties....BUMMER!!

    Clubs and Activities

    Many clubs and activities are available to become a part of. Most noted are career related ones. Very hands-on and exciting.

    Great for these types of students

    This college is for fashion design, criminal justice, and music majors. Anything outside of that should not apply.

    Bang for the buck

    The school is awesome, but I do not feel the tuition for this college is right. I do feel that it is over priced.

    What to do for fun

    AIU-Atlanta coordinates different activities monthly for students in all majors. Fashion shows, talent shows, baseball games, etc. There is always something going on that gets the students involved and interacting with each other.

    Food and Dining

    Food is actually pretty good. Kind of on the expensive end, but quite enjoyable.

    Dorm Life

    Enjoyable experience! Met new students from different places. Dorm staff could be a little better with organization, but overall good. Great way to fully experience college. If you don't have transportation, they offer shuttles to and from the Marta station to the campus.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes are fun, yet challenging. Study, attend classes, and take notes and like with any school, you will do good.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared to work as much as play. Offer activities that are helpful in everyday life. Stay on top of your school work and paper work. You're about to begin college and professors are not going to make you do anything. College is what you make of it.

    In three sentences

    AIU-Atlanta is a very hands-on school. Courses are very helpful for field of study. Safe environment.

    Bang for the buck

    the school is somewhat pricey when compared to other school by the price per credit hour. however, when the price is compared with other programs (which take considerably more time to complete) it evens out.

    Academic Rigor

    i believe that you get out of a program what you put into it. every program is rigorous if one is committed to maximizing the education that they get out of it.

    Tips for prospective students

    prospective students should always do their own research and know what they want before contacting any school. an advisor's job should be to help you develop a plan to get to where you want to go. but, they cannot do that if you have no idea of where it is that you want to go.

    In three sentences

    american intercontinental university is my top choice because it affords members of the u.s. armed forces, like myself, to continue their education while serving overseas in combat zones. the accelerated quarters at american intercontinental university also make a person's dream of realizing higher education more attainable. the application process to american intercontinental is also make easy by the thorough enrollment and financial aid advisors.

    What to do for fun

    i don't know what there would be to do for fun around the ground campuses as i live nowhere near any of them. i do, however, know what i do for fun. when i'm not working and doing school work, i spend every bit of extra time i have with my two little boys and their father because my family is more important to me than anything.

    Food and Dining

    i can't tell you about the quality of the food and dining in the school either because of my own personal situation. i've been in situations where ramen noodles were the main staple in my diet. i have also had more than my fair share of mres, so, i can't imagine that there would be anything to complain about.

    Dorm Life

    i cannot rate this portion of the school as i do not live on or near a ground campus. i am a mother of two and i work full time so my dorm is my home. i did spend quite a bit of time in the military, so compared to some of the places i've stayed in, i would consider any dorm a suite.

    Academic Rigor

    the academic programs at this school are very rigorous. to succeed here, it is imperative to conduct thorough, scholarly research for each assignment and avoid falling behind on assignments. it is amazing how much more you learn and retain by researching in conjunction with reading the text.

    Tips for prospective students

    if you're looking for a challenge then you will find it here. self-motivation and determination are important to your success at this school. you will absolutely get out of it what you put into it, and the rewards are great.

    In three sentences

    this school is an excellent choice for single mothers who work full time. american intercontinental university's staff are friendly and more than accommodating when help is needed. the online campus is easy to understand and navigate and provides a superb environment for students from all walks of life.

    Campus Safety

    Plenty of security!

    Greek Life

    None!

    Clubs and Activities

    None!

    Great for these types of students

    Great for older, more non-traditional students; especially if you need evening or online classes.

    Bang for the buck

    The cost of tuition is a little ridiculous, because you don't see much for the money spent.

    What to do for fun

    Fun?? I guess you haven't heard...the school's new motto is that it is an UNparty school!

    Food and Dining

    The food is OK, but there is not a big lunchroom with a variety of choices like most schools. Just this small cafe, that costs just a little too much for what you get if you ask me.

    Dorm Life

    There aren't any dorms on this campus.

    Academic Rigor

    I love the classroom settings because they are small and intimate, make learning easier. Every professor I have taken knows be by name.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you keep all of your information in a file that is easily accessible. This facility has a tendency to mess up your paperwork and it usually ends up costing the student money!!

    In three sentences

    This school would be amazing if the focus was more on the students rather than the bottom line! Most of the staff seems to only care about a paycheck, only a select few go over and beyond for the students.

    All inclusive for the price per credit. Books ain't cheap these days and it's nice having them included. You receive hard copy and eBooks depending on course study.

    Am enjoying being here

    The Virtual Campus is intuitive but sometimes a little kludgy. You can Friend someone just like in FB.

    I've just started but I'm really, really impressed. All of the staff are knowledgeable. The Financial Assistance & Prior Learning Assessment teams are always on top of things and prompt turn around; sometimes in minutes.

    Great for these types of students

    This college is great for students who want the education without all of the extras. I was never into classrooms settings and preferred to do my work alone, if you are the same way this school is perfect for you. This setting is not recommended for those who want to experience the social experience of college. Going to an online school really opens up work schedules, so a full time job is very easy to accomplish with this school.

    Tips for prospective students

    To students looking to attend AIU online, I really do recommend this school. For the amount you pay and the time you spend, the material you learn is so worth it. I do urge those looking to apply to evaluate themselves and really see if they are willing to apply themselves to stick to the classes. Not having a real life teacher there to push you or show you how to do things can get really tough sometimes, so if you want to go to any online school you need to make sure you can handle that.

    Bang for the buck

    Many of my other college friends are just finishing their associate’s degree and are in debt up to their eyeballs. I am not because of this school. The financial aid people are very helpful and are willing to work with whatever you need, and because it is an online school and there are no dorms or lunches to pay for, the amount that I had to pay for school was so low! I honestly don’t think I would have been able to afford a brick-and-mortal school and I am glad I made the choice to go online.

    Am enjoying being here

    I have been in this college since two months after I graduated in 2009 and I absolutely love it. It is an accelerated program so my four year degree will take a little over two years. The classes are broken into five week intervals at one to two classes depending on what the student wants. The financial aid worked with me because I couldn’t afford to take two classes each time, they set me on a schedule to fit what I needed. Most of the teachers are very willing to work with you, but that is not to say that they let you slack off. Just like any online school, you have to be willing to get your homework in; no one is standing behind you reminding you what to do. Overall if you are willing to apply yourself, this is a fantastic school.

    Am learning a lot

    I do learn a lot at this school, but it is definitely the type of school that requires the student to put in a significant amount of effort. The classes can sometimes seem overwhelming, but if they are taken week by week, the work load is manageable. I am enrolled for information systems and I have learned so much about my field by applying myself in each other classes given to me.

    again, since this is an online school, this is not really applicable.

    Great for these types of students

    this school is perfect for those who don't have the time to drive to a campus or who already have a job and a family and can't live on a campus. this offers the mom on the go an opportunity to achieve higher education without leaving home. you can access the virtual campus anywhere at anytime. there is no more excuses to not get an education.

    Bang for the buck

    education is costly, but with aiu online, it is well worth it. the professors are available to speak to either by chat, email, phone, or during office hours. the learning center offers extra help and the tutors are awesome. all of this is included in the tuition, even the books!

    Academic Rigor

    the classes are amazing and the professors and really great. the school provides at no extra charge, tutoring and a learning lab. this really helps for those classes that are extremely difficult.

    Tips for prospective students

    the courses in five week sessions, so it can be very intense. the biggest thing that students must know and need to do is have time management. if not, the week can be over and working on a project at the last minute can cause a lot of stress and even a lower grade.

    In three sentences

    i would rate this university a 10. i have been attending this school for a little over a year now and i love it! this is an online school, so it makes life very easy and convenient. as a mother and wife, this school allows me to attend weekly chats with the professors either live or archived. this is one of the only online schools that is truly online, the others require you to attend so many hours at the actual campus, which is not very easy for many.

    Academic Rigor

    the curriculum at this school is challenging ,but not to difficult to accomplish.

    Tips for prospective students

    for those interested in american intercontinental university i highly suggest mastering time management. although, time management goes hand and hand with every college, this school has courses where you are learning a one unit of work each week. that is just with one course, so i beg those that do consider this school to know in advantage how to prioritize your time.

    Since my experiece is 100% online, I would say it is 100% safe. Also, I heard that the safety of the traditional AIU campuses are highly secure and in great locations.

    There are many clubs and activities to join, I am currently a member of the business management club.

    Great for these types of students

    (AIU) would be great for any aged individual that has graduated high school or earned a GED. Also, it would be great for individuals that do not really have time for school but, have access to a computer and Internet so, they can do the work on their own time, with knowledge of having consistent due dates. For example, the first discussion board post is due on Wednesday of every week of the class and all assignments for that week is due by Sunday of each week. They also have many universities in the United States for the ones that want to take a traditional class, too.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    They allow graduation to be viewed online if someone can not make the in person trip to one of the many University locations.

    Bang for the buck

    (AIU) is straightforward and upfront with everything. Five weeks per class with some holidays in between a few classes. Flexible hours, easy to understand, and consistent assignment schedule.

    I only experienced the online part of this school but, I have heard it has great food and close to many dining locations.

    To prospective students, before making a choice on any college, research several and talk with some of their staff members. Do not pick the first one that calls you. (AIU) was my second choice but it turn out to be the best choice.

    In three sentences

    (AIU) has a diverse staff, teachers, and students that are friendly, understanding, knowledgeable, and helpful to everyone. The virtual campus website is easy to use and understand. The classes are direct, efficient, and effective and, I would totally recommend this school to everyone I know.

    All I can say is just that this is a great way of getting a degree taking classes in the comfort of your own home and in a shorter amount of time it takes going to an actual ground campus.

    In three sentences

    I would have to rate this school as a very good opportunity for anyone wanting to attend college online instead of in a ground campus. The admissions personnel as well as the financial aid department people have been very friendly and helpful in getting me enrolled.

    AIU is excellent for self-motivated, committed students that enjoy an online setting, are unable, or choose not to attend traditional classroom classes, and want to complete a degree program that is challenging and useful in the marketplace.

    Food and Dining

    As I do not live on campus, I am not familiar with the dining and food aspects of the school.

    Dorm Life

    I live off campus as do most students that complete the online program.

    Academic Rigor

    This program is rigorous in that the classes are completed in only five weeks. In order to be successful, students must be committed to spending many hours per week completing the reading assignments, conducting the necessary research, and writing the papers required in each class.

    Tips for prospective students

    Prospective students should apply for scholarships in advance if possible as the tuition is a bit higher than some schools. Be prepared to supply various documents when applying such as proof of high school graduation, transcripts from high school, and any previous colleges attended. Prospective students should consider how their planned degree program will aid them in the future, as they will be required to write an essay about their plans and goals for the future and how their educational pursuits will assist in achieving these objectives.

    In three sentences

    American InterContinental University is appropriate for self-motivated, academic minded students that do not need a classroom atmosphere to be successful. The degree programs are completed in an online setting and are vigorous as each course, which provides 4.5 credits each, are completed in only five weeks, thus a degree program may be completed in a shorter time period. The class materials are comprehensive and presented in various formats including e-books, traditional textbooks, and appropriate supplemental materials provided within each class.

    Academic Rigor

    The instructors will go all out to help if you show that you are really interested in succeeding. The classes are not large, so you can ask for help more readily than if you were in a larger college.

    Tips for prospective students

    I encourage all perspective students to write down what they would like to accomplish and the amount of time they would like to see the results. Even if you need longer to accomplish this, at least you have a plan. Find out what the college offers. Speak to a representative for information on what is needed and how to get started. Be serious, this is not for the fainthearted. If you are afraid because it is all new to you, don't be afraid to ask for help in making these goals a reality.

    In three sentences

    This college is conducive for those who are more serious students who are more concerned with results of improving their continued education as opposed to a social make up of student body. This school is for those who already know what they want to achieve upon completion of the required courses. The instructors while expecting exellence from each student, are all too happy to help in the event that there is a pressing issue that could side tract the student from accomplishing his or her intended goal. This helps the student to stay involved in the learning process whereas in other institutions hope has the potential of becoming lost, and the student dislocated. American Intercontinental University is also very good at encouraging students who have never had a previous college experience, to become a more informed and prepared participant in his or her learning.

    The campus has security all over! So, it's definitely safe!

    Unfortunately, there isn't any Greek Life although I wish there were! I personally would like to pledge either Alpha Kappa Alpha or Delta Sigma Theta! ;-)

    Clubs and Activities

    There is the Criminal Justice Club Student Government Association (Which I am the Event Coordinator of) Currently nothing geared towards GLBT Community but I'm in the process of trying to make that happen!

    Food and Dining

    Personally, by me being a vegetarian I don't really like the campus food that well but there are a few places nearby that you can go to for a good bite to eat!

    Dorm Life

    I don't live on campus however, some students that do live in the college apartments don't seem to complain about it! So, I'm guessing it's fairly well.

    Academic Rigor

    In regards to classes and size it can be pretty decent. Then again if you are used to a larger class size (like 300 or more people) then it can be relatively small. Overall, the classes are great and you get one on one help if you need it!

    I have enjoyed this school so much, that my husband (55 years old) is also going to AIU for his IT AA/BA degrees.

    I am sure that the campuses themselves have many fun things to do. Online we have many clubs to choose from, which makes the online student feel at ease and more involved in the school.

    Academic Rigor

    As stated before, structured academic life. Each class is a total of 5 weeks; you have a timeline of assignments that need to be completed each week. The instructor offers Live Chats, access to his/her emails/cells, etc and you have your fellow students to work with.

    Tips for prospective students

    For the prospective student, they need to know that you have structure, more so than if you were in a classroom in front of the instructor. You still need to make time to study, work on your assignments and get them in on a timely manner. It is what the student makes and takes from the classes and instructors.

    I graduated high school 38 years ago and have always wanted to return to school. Life got in the way; marriage, divorce, single parenting, the death of a child, work, and cancer. After surviving cancer, I was ready to take the world by storm and do something I have always wanted to do - return to school. I called AIU and spoke to a career counselor. It looked like I was going to have to give up my dream until Derrick Brazley, my counselor gave me options I could live with to achieve my dream. He never gave up on helping me to get where I have wanted to go for 38 years. Thanks to Derrick, I am enrolled in one class at a time and beginning to achieve my dream! I am maintaining a 4.0 GPA at the time and loving this college! Thank=you AIU for helping me to get here!

Not only are you not alone but they walk you through it and have it saved in case you missed the lecture or if you just didn't understand it the first time. And all professors have office hours or email. AIU online is truly the ideal school for everyone especially for non traditional students. I am a working mother of 4.

Uses e-books to cut cost down, or you could obtain more traditional hardcover books. Everyone is given up to date Microsoft product to make sure that you have everything you need. And a school counselor contacts you about every other week or more to make sure that you are on track and not lost. And the technical support staff is great.

The teachers also guide you on how to get an A for the assignment; their rubrics break down how much of each portion is graded and what you will expect out of your finished assignment.

    Tips for prospective students

    Tests are hard and most people do not have time to study; at AIU, there are no test. The most rewarding part is knowing you will be able to use your academic experience into your chosen career. I am thankful for the leniency that my teachers gave me when there were times I couldn't reach deadlines due to my jobs. Online classes also taught me discipline in reaching these deadlines with ease.

    In three sentences

    I rate AIU a ten in academics because they offer so many resources and even though it can be challenging to do two assignments a week, the faculty are always there, whether it's e-mail, live chat, or during their office hours. I would recommend AIU to anyone who has the determination to reach their goal and are willing to motivate day in and day out. I have learned so much from AIU and what made it much easier is being able to put personal experience into each assignment.

    I like the ease of taking classes with my busy schedule, and that they grade you on your work and discussions then on tests. The only thing I am disappointed about is the fact that financial aid is not help full on finding other funds like scholarships to help pay for college. I just found tuition has gone up and I don't have enough government funds to help out, so now I am stuck with no means to pay for school.

    Academic Rigor

    I would give AIU four star on this because they are serious about making sure that you know what you know before you graduate.

    AIU is a small school so most of us know each other and that's awesome because we are always there to motivate, tutor or just hug each other during a midterm or finals meltdown.

    What to do for fun

    Everything that I am doing school related is fun. I am a Fashion Design student and most of my time is spent creating. Associating with others in your major helps a lot and meeting others outside of your major, for example while taking your core courses, makes the whole experience pretty amazing because you'll be surprised what the results of your connections could be.

    My favorite thing about having a morning class is going to get my breakfast sandwich from the campus cafe and later on in the day running across the street to the other cafe to get a cappuccino.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't think too hard on your decision to start this journey. Just go for it! The journey's beginning is up to you. I went in and spoke with an adviser and it seems that I blinked my eyes and was already finishing my first quarter.

    In three sentences

    Everyone that I've interacted with in that school is motivational in one way or another.

    Since I am researching online, I can only give my opinion of the virtual commons. Joining groups and discussions is the way to go, and everyone is awesome. Just because we aren't in person doesn't mean a great conversation can't be held. I recently joined a group for other single parents.

    Academic Rigor

    From the descriptions I've read, and reviews I've followed up on, academics seem satisfactory. From what I can see, a lot of work is packed into a short amount of time, but it is enough to get you on the road to your degree.

    Always do your research, ask questions, and read the fine print. Never sign something until you are sure you understand it. This goes for anything in life, not just college.

    Great for these types of students

    Pursuing a college education is often a significant investment, as the costs associated with attending college, from tuition to personal expenses are constantly rising, and show no indication of dropping any time soon. A vast majority of students and parents need financial assistance to attend college, and financial aid is often not enough. After exhausting grants, scholarships, and federal student loans, many families still need money to cover the cost of attendance, and in these situations, they apply for student loans. However, many fail to qualify for them as a result of a bad credit history. The best types of student loans for these students and parents are ones that do not require any credit check, and with them, one can easily finance all their educational expenses including tuition, books, and living expenses.

    Tips for prospective students

    Some students who get off to a rocky start eventually pull up their grades; however, this can be very difficult to do. Advanced placement credits and study abroad courses generally do not count in the computation of a student's GPA. Some employers use GPA cutoffs in considering applicants. Other employers stress the student's overall background: experience, number of hours worked during the school year to finance college, leadership activities, etc. Encourage your son or daughter to make academics a high priority beginning with his or her freshman year. Nevertheless, it is important to remember that it may take him or her a while to adjust to the rigorous academic demands of college.
