American InterContinental University Reviews:

Great Learning Experience

As everyone mentioned in previous posts, this is a really great learning experience if you are self-motivated. I graduated in 2006 and have enjoyed every opportunity to expand my knowledge and craft in Digital Design. A college education is only the beginning. If you require personalized one-on-one attention then, this is not the institution for you. Each class builds upon previous ones and you will fall far behind if you miss one or two days of study. Many of the instructors work in the industry for which they teach; of course you may run upon one or two who are horrible, but overall, every instructor I had went well beyond the call of duty to advise and encourage quality work. The only negative I would cite are those students with whom you are paired to complete team projects...some of them were truly slackers and contributed little to the team. For the most part, I got a great return on my investment.

Your Education is what you put into it! AIU is a great place to start!

I recommend AIU to a person that is determined to succeed and ready for a challenge. They provide exceptional materials for each course and the AIU faculty remained professional and knowledgeable throughout. Each class consists of 5 intense weeks of a 12-16 week course! If you have ever taken a summer 5-8 week course, this is very similar. Your education is what you put into it! Do your work, be on time, and follow the rules! Lucas K. Williams

Notes From an AIU Grad

I recently graduated from AIU with a BFA in Visual Communication with a specialization in Web Design. I worked very hard and graduated with a 3.9 GPA. I am a veteran professional in the Multimedia area, so most of the courses were fairly easy for me, but there were some classes that were quite difficult for me, but I managed to do well overall. In order to be successful at AIU, you have to be self-motivated, there is no hand holding at all. You get out exactly what you put in. I worked hard therefore I learned a lot, however I had many classmates whose work was absolutely horrible, but somehow they managed to graduate – I don’t know how. Personally, for me I need a degree to move ahead in my career, so the experience was overall OK. However, I would not recommend this program to someone who would need to rely on these classes to actually learn the field. In cases like these, you would graduate with a degree, but not really have enough skill to be successful in your career. I NEVER once heard from my academic advisor, and this pissed me off. However, everyone else (especially my prior learning assessment advisor) were great. If you are self-motivated and need a degree to move ahead, AIU is a great choice; however, if you are looking to learn a craft and need individual attention, I would not recommend this program.

Great school. Great faculty. Wonderful use of technology. Accelerated degree MBA program is intense! Dedication is required with at least 2 hours per weekday of study and an additional 6-8 hours on weekends. Preparation for classes requires prior reading of between 2-6 chapters per week. E-Library is very helpful in completing research assignments. I love it! The most satisfying degree program i have taken.

I graduated with a BFA in Digital Design from this school. The program was fast paced and intense, but doable. The teachers were very good. I got a good solid education from this school and would advise anyone to go here as well.
