Degree: Business Administration

I started my bachelor's program in electrical engineering back in 2018. I stopped taking classes due to work/life balance in conjunction with somewhat complicated classes. It's not that I didn't understand the material, it's that they stuff so much into such a small amount of time. Not only that, but some of the professors are not easy to get in contact with when you are having problems with lessons. I ended up switching my program to a Bachelor of Business Administration in 2020. From there, I started... Read More

School had great reviews so i wanted in. My experience with the instructors thus far has been great but the financial aid department needs new staff or a good tuning up because they are by far the worst i've ever dealt with. Their miscommunication and missed correspondences could ruin a person. I received an email that was referencing a previous email that they never sent! I checked my spam, deleted, inbox and there wasnt an email sent from financial aid so when i asked them, to resend the original... Read More

I wasn't sure how much this degree would be worth coming from an online-only school. Well, thankfully almost every school, even Ivy League, has online programs these days, so credibility didn't end up being an issue. My BBA got me hired by a Fortune 100 financial services corporation and admittance to LSU's AACSB accredited MBA program. If you are disciplined and focused, you will enjoy great utility from this degree. NOTE: their financial aid department is TERRIBLE and got my financing wrong seven... Read More

This is a diploma mill, and as such, it will always have that stigma with the degree attained. I have taken many courses from here, but I will not graduate with a degree from here. I am transferring the credits from here (mostly general studies) to a non for profit school. The classes were very basic and simple. Most of the answers to any test or quiz are online. The quizzes or tests are not proctored and most are multiple choice. You basically teach yourself. Half of the classes, the "professor's"... Read More

This school is TERRIBLE! They treat their employees terribly, staff and faculty included. The school was once phenomenal, but the dire state of the current management has led to decreased morale, zero benefits and no motivation. Transparency with staff and faculty is non-existent which means there is a lot that's being hidden from students. Do yourself a favor and avoid this school. I wouldn't want to attend a school if I knew the staff and faculty weren't valued because that means management sees... Read More

When I first started in 2014, I loved attending the school. My professors were always helpful and attentive. As time went on, things started to slip. It almost felt like robots took over as teachers. When I brought this observation up to one of my first intructors on email, he offered to talk on the phone privately. It was then (to my horror) I learned that faculty are required to teach 450 students a year. He also filled me in on all of the requirements forced on faculty. I felt so bad for him and...

I am in my senior year of the BBA program at APU. The course materials used are the same you would have in a brick-and-mortar school. I did my research on that to make sure the level of coursework and depth of learning objectives were where they should be. Every class has a weekly discussion forum participation requirement and this consists of an initial posting of 250-300 words due Wednesday or Thursday, along with replies to at least two peers' threads (usually 100 words). You will take tests and... Read More

APUS makes it easy to work towards your degree while working full time. The schedule was flexible and professors were knowleable in their field. I appreciated that the school understood not everyone has the ability to commit to normal school hours due to job / family related responsibilities.

I'm highly dissatisfied with my degree from APUS. My degree is not worth the paper it was printed on! The majority of employers expect 50 years of experience plus a degree. I can't wait until the unicorn phase of hiring starts to die out. I worked really hard to earn a degree that the majority of employers scarf at for no apparent reason.

American Public University is the best school I've ever attended. From the helpful admissions people to the great teachers and advisors. I have received valuable support and encouragement the whole time. I've been to 2 other universities, prior to APU and had both on campus experiences and hybrid courses. If you're comfortable with computers then 100% online is a great fit with APU. I have been going to this school for a little more than a year and have found no issues with the financial aid, probably... Read More

I completed an Associates in Business Administration at a state school. After having my first child I decided I wanted to finish my Bachelor Degree in Business as well. I was working full time and was not able to attend a traditional school. I graduated in 2014 with my Bachelor's, and I found the classes to be challenging and thorough. The professors will not let you slack off, so if you miss a deadline, or post late, you will either get points deducted or receive a 0 for that assignment or forum.... Read More
