Choose another institution
February 24, 2012
I attended AMU and graduated in 2004 with a Criminal Justice Bachelors Degree w/honors. Since then, I have been an Adjunct Professor at two colleges and earned a commission in the Army. This was all due to my completion of my bachelor's degree. In the beginning, I would tell my students and peers about AMU. It was a very good institution until what I have learned now. Late 2011, I was informed of several negative ... [Read more]

Do not waste your time and money.
April 29, 2012
Do not waste your time or money going to this "college". This school is ideal for individuals in the military who simply need a piece of paper that says "B.S. / B.A." on it in order to be promoted. This school isn't a diploma mill but it's pretty close. They are nationally and regionally accredited, however, after taking 5 "upper division" classes, I feel that accreditation means a lot less than I originally thought. I ... [Read more]

You ARE YOUR degree
February 10, 2010
I am a Professor at AMU and I’ve read these reviews and I see nothing out of the ordinary. Some pleased, some not. I offer my two cents. For clarification before I start, I have an undergraduate degree from a small, brick and mortar, four-year University, private school and a graduate degree from one of the Top FIVE of U.S. News & World Report’s Best Graduate Schools: 1. EVERY University has poor professors. Period. Professors ... [Read more]

Take Responsibility for your Education
May 10, 2012
I find interesting some of the reviews here, as they are quite the opposite from every experience I have had with this university. At this time, I have completed 24 undergraduate courses with them and can comment intelligently about various encounters. For those using federal financial aid, the process is all fairly automated – get it right the first time when you apply and stop blaming AMU/APUS for your lack of oversight and ill preparedness. ...

May 12, 2014
Amu tech support is a joke. Also during an extension the professor failed to reset the dates and received zeros on two assignment because I had no way to submit them. As a result my B+ average dropped to a F. I filed two appeals over a year ago with no response. In addition AMU failed to provide me access to my classroom and course materials. Good thing for me is that I have all ... [Read more]

Extreme acts of misconduct by professors
May 16, 2013
I originally selected AMU because it was the only school I could find which would take all of my transfer credit and didn't set some unfair limit on how much credit it would accept as a way to force you to spend more money. In that sense, I can still praise AMU for giving me about half a degree worth of transfer credit that many other schools would have tried to cheat me out of. ... [Read more]

A Review Worth Reading
January 21, 2013
I recently graduated with an Associates Degree in General Studies and working on my Bachelors in something else. Unlike the name, I am a civilian and am actually paying for college out of my own pocket. Variety of interesting degrees, 8-week courses starting every month, free textbooks, and regional accreditation... These are the reasons I chose APUS (started in APU then changed to AMU). If you can find a school that offers the above mentioned ... [Read more]
