Criminal Justice - August 4, 2014
I EARNED my Masters Degree in Criminal Justice from New Charter University and I would highly recommend this University to EVERYONE. The whole experience was wonderful and I have used my knowledge in my everyday life. There are a lot of assignments and you have to work hard for your grades and that's what makes me so proud of earning my degree from this school. I know I worked hard for it and I actually gained useful experience and information. If you want to learn and earn a quality degree at a very reasonable price, this is the only way to go.

MBA - September 12, 2011
I have an As in CJ from AJU and I have to say that they are a little to hard. I have taken classes at other schools and AJU is by far the hardest school I have ever attended.
Not bad...not great
MBA - June 15, 2011
This is the kind of thing that bothers me. Yo try to learn for a degree and they pretend to give it you one. I feel like there were real teachers there, but I don't know if my degree is respected by jobs. Overall, I would say it was a good experience. I'd be happier with a job.
Great for working students
Criminal Justice - February 17, 2011
I am a full time police officer and had been out of collage since 1992. I wanted to finish my degree but always put it off because of scheduling conflicts. AJU classes are great for students who work full time and need flexible time for school. The work is challenging but not impossible. If you complete all the assignments and read the text book, you should have no problem passing. It is important to keep on schedule as many times I have had to ask for extensions to complete all the work on time. Great staff, great class room web sites and good curriculum.
Andrew Jackson is worth your money
MBA - February 16, 2011
Andrew Jackson is worth looking into. When you see the cost you may think it is a scam but let me tell you, it is far from a scam. I am taking my first two classes here while pursuing an MBA. I am doing more work with two class here than with four classes while pursuing my undergraduate at another university. Expect to do alot of case studies. The courses are built around 400-1000 word essays and case studies every week. This university is the real deal so get ready to work your butt off. Especially if you work full-time like I do." I am AJU through and through."
Well worth the price
MPA - Public Administration - October 1, 2010
I am 75% through my Masters Degree in Public Administration. Having worked over 20 years in the public sector workforce, it's nice to know that the subject matter being taught at AJU is consistent with the public sector working environment. Often times you hear that what you are taught has nothing to do with what you experience in the real world. This is not true with the courses and teachings offered at AJU.
MPA and customer service all great!
MPA - Public Administration - August 23, 2010
I enrolled in Andrew Jackson University's Master of Public Administration (MPA) program just before they ended sponsored tuition. The education I am receiving is a great value, and significant work is required in order to earn the degree. The class requirements, especially essays, are actually a bit more than at some traditional universities from which I had earned three degrees. Grading seems fair, however, and most instructors respond to questions within one to three days. Student Services typically responds within 24 hours or less. The only problem that I experienced was concerning billing and payments. But they corrected the problem almost immediately ince notified. If you are looking for a low cost, quality education, with maximum transfer credits, then AJU is a good alternative. Though AJU is nationally, rather than regionally accredited, I am using the degree to supplement my credentials for consulting purposes and possibly online teaching at similar institutions. I do believe the education gained is just as good, if not better, than at some institutions that are regionally accredited. All assignments are asynchronous, which provides the convenience of time and place. I would like to see AJU offer an online library of sorts, and expand its degree concentrations. For example, for the MPA, an emphasis in nonprofit management would be a good idea.
Above the standard!!
MBA in Health Care Services - June 27, 2010
I am really surprised the previous reviewer feels that way about AJU. I have 3 degrees from traditional colleges, so I have been around higher education (it seems like) forever. AJU expects you to do a lot of work and be a self-starter, but they bend over backwards to help you succeed. I needed to take an incomplete because life happened, and Tammy Kassner called and emailed me personally to ensure that everything was taken care of. As far as instructors not being available, most of them get back to you within 24-48 hours. I think the rule is 72 hours. If you study and do the work, you can easily pass the midterms and finals. Adequate chapter and exam reviews are on your own, just like at any other university. I have been very happy with AJU, and the fact that I got in on the sponsored tuition deal, made it the best educational decision I ever made.

Not at the standard
MBA - June 17, 2010
I was an MBA student with AJU and I found the university below many standards. The readings and materials did not adequately prepare students for the mid-term and final exams. The instructors are distant and not readily available. Administrative errors were numerous and sometimes financially costly. When comparing AJU to other universities they lack adequate chapter and exam reviews. Actually, they do not have any exam reviews conducted by the instructors. I would not recommend them.
Enterprenuership and Strategic Leadership - June 16, 2010
I am in my 3 semester and I have to say this syllabus is nicely structured well designed with flexibility, very helpful staff and tough assignments to get you understand the concepts.The best part is the practical application of all the concepts with the case studies. Very nice..
