American Military University Reviews:

Great school.

I have read a lot of reviews on here and have kept up with them throughout my time at AMU. While reading so many of them, I wonder if we are even going to the same school. One of the most common reviews stem from the concern that an online degree is not taken seriously outside of the school and that the degree is useless. I would like to say that this is false and that not only was I able to get a job with my degree, I was able to get into a very good doctorate program. During my time there, I did notice that many students struggled in some classes and I think that this is where a lot of the negative reviews are coming from. I can tell just from some of the reviews that there are students that did not get the grades they wanted and are trying to take it out on the school rather than actually apply themselves. This is very unfortunate because it gives such a good school a bad name. I would (have and still do) recommend this school to anyone. I would not just recommend it to someone so that they can get a piece of paper that says they have a degree, but I would highly recommend it to anyone that actually wants to learn. I have attended this school and another brick-and-mortar university and would suggest this school. The work can be hard and this can overwhelm a lot of people who think it is going to be a cake-walk. Do not underestimate the classes here.

Overall, AMU was a great choice and a perfect fit for my needs. I can also say that I had taken a position and was earning a paycheck before I even received the diploma in the mail. I graduated in February, and began working two weeks later.

Great choice for online education

One of the biggest sellers on this education route for me was that my books were provided for free. That was very helpful in determining education cost, especially as some classes used several books. The upper level classes were particularly interesting, with good variety and great teachers. Only really had one teacher I didn't enjoy in this experience. Do understand, there are no lectures, so you are made to learn the material by actually reading the textbook, watching videos or looking at recommended websites, and participating in discussion forms with your classmates and teachers. Overall, as an independent learner I enjoyed the experience and never felt out of my depth or as though I couldn't find answers to my questions in any of my classes. Good school, excellent value, interesting breadth of students in classes and an overall positive experience.

My time at AMU has been nothing but exceptional. I had an issue with my financial aid and it was fixed immediately. If I struggled in a class the professors responded very quickly. some even offered web tutoring if I felt it was necessary. You would not regret attending this university. I graduate with my psychology degree in four weeks and I already have a position because of the degree I received. The fact that it was done on-line was the deciding factor. They cited "It shows how great work ethics, commitment, and dedication". You will not regret attending this university.

Solid Education + Great Experience

AMU has been a good experience. Some courses and teachers have been more challenging than others. But for the most part I've gotten my moneys worth. I was initially concerned that an online education would not be the same quality as the traditional route. I was wrong! My skills in class discussion, research and writing have grown tremendously. For the most part your online professor is a guide throughout the course. Constructive feedback is something lacking with probably 50% of the instructors. Course content is excellent. Research papers and projects are challenging. It's definitely not the type of learning environment where you memorize and regurgetate information. Critical thinking and communication skills will definitely improve while attending this university. It's not Ivey League but its competitive with State Universities.
