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]

Not a diploma mill - Descent distant learning experience
October 27, 2013
I read the above comments, and comments from other sites. For the majority of the negative reviews about AIU I notice the extent of experience from those complainers is lacking. Prior to getting an MBA through AIU, I received my ABET certified undergraduate degrees in Chemical Engineering and another degree in Physics with a Biophysics concentration and a minor in Mathematics from a public state university. In my early years, I attended a university in ... [Read more]

AIU is no joke
August 19, 2013
I've attended a total of 4 colleges. My first was Highline Community College working towards my AA. My second was University of Phoenix Online. My third was ITT Tech. My last was AIU. With UoP and ITT Tech, I took several classes but didn't feel like I was really needing to do the work. I went to AIU and finished up my BBA. I stuck with it because it my in my career field and ...

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]

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]

AIU charges students a fortune to teach themselves
March 3, 2013
I am currently attending AIU, and I am trying to find out which CEC schools are in danger of losing accreditation or closing. I would not recommend this school to anyone. I have yet to have an assignment that has anything to do with my e-books, I get all of my information off the internet. I am teaching myself. I also agree with the many comments about classmates who sound illiterate, and don't know what ... [Read more]
