AIU Teachers, Resources and Admissions Advisors
May 27, 2012
Let me keep it real for you here. First of all the financial aid office is open 7 days a week. You are assigned a lead fin. aid advisor that has a team of people available to help you. Your stipends are not issued for 10-12 weeks, usually after the quarter, which is in your best interest. Why? Because if you fail the class you will need that money to pay to retake it and ...

It is not a diploma mill
September 22, 2011
I am currently in this college. It is a great place for the parent who isnt able to attend a traditional college. Those who say its not hard or who state that it is not a good place to go and they dont learn anyting are just being pompous jerks. frankly if you didnt learn anything its your own fault for not trying. Furthermore, if you thought it was easy your sorley mistaken. It is ... [Read more]

This school is for forward thinkers and take-charge personalities
August 21, 2012
AIU gives you the opportunity to get your hands on to a college degree with a lot of flexibility. In order to do well, you've got to read twice as much materials in one week than you usually would have to in a regular University. If you are in it to barely pass, this is NOT the University for you. The information is practical and applicable to the real world. If you don't put all ... [Read more]

I attended AIU for my Bachelor in Business Administration and it was great. The courses were very challenging but I made it. As for financial Aid, I had no problem, infact they helped me when I ran into some difficulties. The professors I had were good and bad as you find in any other college. I really think AIU is better than the university I am going to right now for my Master's in many ... [Read more]

Offer materials and support to meet different learning styles but it's not cheap
August 2, 2012
My experience at AIU – Online has been great up to this point. In my opinion the Pros and Cons are as follows: Pros: The staff is very supportive and knowledgeable. As in most schools, some of the teachers are more engaged then others. However, all of the teachers up to this point have been available when necessary. They offer tons of content on their library which is extremely helpful when doing assignments. The support ... [Read more]

Just in it for the money
February 14, 2012
I have attended AIU for four years now and have always had difficulties with the financial aid department. Financial aid claims to have an “Additional Funding Team” that projects how much and when you will receive any excess financial aid in the form of a stipend. This alleged “team” does not speak with students, so trying to contact someone directly is fruitless. The financial aid department directs any and all responsibility for additional funding to ...

AIU is an extremely UNTRADITIONAL school. This is what makes it immensely valuable in our world today - especially in the IT field. Schools adhering to antiquated techniques and approaches are slow to produce trend changing business/technology integrators. To establish my credibility I will say that I have attended a hand ful of institutions – in each instance I had a purpose of obtaining some knowledge base in my curriculum. I did not seek degrees ...
