Degree: Criminal Justice

AMU is a great school that offers 100% online degree programs. I transferred to AMU from the University of South Carolina because it was simple and was easier to use my chapter 33 GI Bill benefit without jumping through hoops like at a state school. I was able to learn more on the go with AMU because they provide you with electronic books at no charge. This degree was simple for a working law enforcement professional like myself. I will be getting my MPA from AMU as well.

This is a amazing University, I don't know how I would have made it this far without AMU. I have had a great time throughout my studies at this University. I have truly learned a lot throughout my course work and studies. I had no issues with the financial aid office. I have had one class that I felt the instructor was not reasonable, however, I made it through the course and I also had one science course which I found to be a bit too much for a introduction course. Before the end of this year I... Read More

I first started with AMU back in 2009 while in Iraq. AMU was recommended to my by a counselor. This college has been great. I never had any problems with financial aid or the teachers. Sometimes the teacher do not get the grading accomplished on time but that really isn't an issue. I am currently working on my Masters. My significant other has received her Masters and Bachelors from APU. She has nothing but good things to say about the school as well. The only areas that I would give APU/AMU 3 stars... Read More

This school is great for those who are living busy lives. This school is especially great for those serving or have served in the military as well. If you are deciding to try and "skate" through a college degree then you are truly mistaken and this place is not for you. In fact, you have to put forth even more effort and maintain even more discipline with an online setting than that of a traditional school. This school is accredited and they take that accreditation seriously. Just like any other... Read More

This is the WORST, I mean WORST school to deal with. Don't even THINK about getting anything done for your financial aid; no one is in a hurry here. Changing your major? They'll put a hold on your account. Dropping an unneeded class? Hold on your account. Have any questions? Hold on your account. Simply put, if you pay them money, they will give you credits but you'll NEVER see them because you have so many holds on your account. Oh, and did I mention I paid them in full and still have a hold on... Read More

I wanted to try out AMU for myself because it seemed like a great school for working adults & military. However it's too much that is expected from you. I have to read 3 plus chapters per week and on top of that I have forum postings that I have to constantly do all through out the week. This f****** school isn't satisfied with a student making the required posting but they want them to post four times a f****** week and respond to every d*** response you receive to your posting. 4 -6 page papers,...

AMU is a great school! I have been attending for four years now. I have an AA History, AA Criminal Justice, and graduate in May with a BA Criminal Justice. The classes are well paced, but do require self motivation and work. All this nonsense about "traditional schools" is a joke. Employers just want to know the answer to the magic question "are they accredited", and AMU is! I will be receiving a 10,000 dollar raise when I am finished with my bachelors. I am a post 9/11 student and have had no problems.... Read More

I am a current student at American Public University System. I was surprised to read a review where the person stated their experience was completely negative and decided to add my experience. I am currently about two thirds of the way to completing my bachelor degree and have been overall satisfied with the quality of education and level of cooperation I have received from the school. I have had a few minor problems over the years with financial aid and a couple of classes I have taken but nothing... Read More

Degree: Criminal Justice

I first attended this school (AMU) in late-2006. I had originally planned to major in Business Administration with an Entrepreneurial concentration, but changed my major to Criminal Justice. I have been pleased with this school since my first course. The instructors are all very knowledgeable in their field and many come from outstanding backgrounds and have held important positions prior to teaching at American Military University. Being that it is an online university, the student is responsible... Read More
