I have read quite a few of negative reviews regarding AMU. Unless things have changed since 2013, AMU was a pretty great school for military and was very accepting to active duty military life. My BS degree got me into a MS program at UF which was very rigorous to say the least. I am currently in a PhD program at UF, landed a GS-12 position as my first job outside of the military, and tutor undergraduates. It all started with AMU.

I would say APUS is a mediocre school at best. I had several issues while attending that makes me wish I went somewhere else. I know several people have commented on the financial aid at APUS, but luckily I didn't have the same issues. I do think they nickle and dime their students, especially as you get closer to graduation. It costs $100 to graduate, and $20 for offical paper transcripts to be sent. Of the two years I spent at APUS to complete my degree, I had only two or three classes that I really... Read More

I feel sorry for those whom have had a poor experience at APU/AMU. The class structure has been perfect for me - it's just self-paced enough to be flexible, but not so lackadaisical it's easy to fall behind. I never had any issues with non-responsive instructors. And as far as 'buying' a degree? Try taking some of my program's core courses - statistics, chemistry, biology, environmental law and policy, water science - they are no joke. It's challenging, and at times, the workload is miserable - but... Read More

As I read some of these comments I cannot believe the negativity of some of them. I have been taking classes for a year and a half and it is no walk in the park. You get what you put into it, if you don't study, expect poor grades. I have had no issues with neither my professors or school staff; they have been understanding when "life" becomes complicated. So far, nothing but positivity and good praise for this institution. Manage your time, study and make school a priority or expect to fail. This... Read More

American Military University (AMU) is an outstanding option if you are looking for an online college experience. AMU provided me with one of the largest selections of undergraduate and graduate degrees available online. There were numerous electives to go with each degree program, allowing me to choose electives that interested me and aligned with my degree program plan. As a career Soldier in the United State Army, AMU worked with me to adjust course requirements during times that I was deployed... Read More

All I have to say is best online school I have been compare to CTC, SLCC, and Parker University. I got hired at the EPA under the Recent Graduate Program and I am currently a Scientist for the agency. I get a fatty check every month :) Mission Accomplished!

I have had financial issues non stop since starting. Now they are telling me that I have to owe money to them that they sent back to dept of education from prior semester because they made a mistake and accepted to much money. Now since my financial aid was already 3 months late and I had late payments to pay, they are telling me to use the money I paid off my bills from to pay them back. This school is ridiculous.
