AIU is a greatBrightBusiness - Management and Administration
AIU is a great place for working adults to earn a degree. It offers a lot of freedom to work full-time and have a family. The program does, however, require a lot of discipline to be self-paced and self-motivated. This is not the place for newly graduated high school students.

I have had aQuite Bright
I have had a great experience at AIU. The curriculum works well with my schedule, and for the most part my instructors have provided a clear understanding of the class objectives and expectations. I am certainly glad that I embarked upon this challenge.

I have earned my Associates Degree in BusinessQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I have earned my Associates Degree in Business Administration from AIU this year. Overall I found the school to be mediocre. I often found myself bored with the classes, and I rarely received the challenge that I felt I need.

There are a lot of exceptional resources available to students which are quite nice including: Ebrary (an extensive online library), Learning Labs (which provide additional assistance in several subjects, mainly English, Math, and Writing), Online Tutoring in a variety of subjects, Live chat sessions with instructors that are archived, and several clubs for students, as well as an online "commons" area for socializing online.

The Admissions office is a bit of a Hard Sell, but they are all kind, helpful, and keep their appointments.

Financial Aid office was very helpful, and really always took the time to make sure everything was well aligned, AIU offers a good deal of University specific scholarships to student, which you must apply for. FA advisor's do not go out of their way to point this out though, you must know about them and ask for them to give you any info about them. You can find all of the scholarship information in their course catalog. One thing to point out is that Admissions Advisor's attempt to imply that it is very difficult to get into this school. The reality is that most students have barely earned their GED, and you will rarely if ever be intellectually stimulated by your classmates at AIU. Classes are far from difficult, but when facing the situation where you must reply to fellow students I have found myself ripping my hair out while trying to find more than one post written in an intellectual way. Replies are graded, so this is not something you can opt out of.
