I am currently in my second year with UIU Online.Not so brightOther
I am currently in my second year with UIU Online. I have never taken an online course prior to this experience but attended quite a few different classes around the world, because of being in the military. The online courses are demanding, when it concerns your time and assignments. I do not understand why there are so many negative comments about this school. Did those individuals expect the school just to hand them a degree? If that is the case, I know a few schools that would be better suited to their needs. I would have to say that all of my instructors have been more than willing to help whenever contacted. They all seemed to have a legitimate concern for each student in each course. The coursework has always been very structured and requirements are known prior to the first day of class. No matter what is going on, each student has an obligation to log-in and participate 4 times a week. This requirement is not difficult at all. So, to sum up, the teachers are very helpful and interested in teaching; the coursework is expected for a college level course; the attendance requirements still allow people to work and go to school; and the online school resources are numerous. UIU online is great for those who expect to work, in order to gain the knowledge associated with their degree.

I took in person and online courses.Quite Bright
I took in person and online courses. I see coments here about attendance and requirements, I expect those requirements! If I want a good education and the online program allows flexibility in when to put your time in, but you need to put in the time! Some comments here talk about system glitches, well excuses! Once you know your professors email address (day 1) you can submit anything to them via email with an explanation. Solid education for working professionals who actually care about learning and not just getting a degree.

I went to the Milwaukee center, so noBrightAccounting
I went to the Milwaukee center, so no real campus life was there. Most students were working adults. I also attended online classes for Masters work. I thought online was almost more work than in class. Very helpful faculty with real world experience or teaching experience at other universities. It was a solid education if not spectacular but not everyone can afford the name schools and the time needed to attend regular classes. UIU was a great experience for me and I would suggest it for adult students wanting to earn an education while still providing for your family. Not to be too rude but i find it telling that the negative comments about this school are hardly legible and complaining about too much work. Like anything in life, you get out of it what you put into it. UIu is not a diploma mill or for profit school. I am glad I went there and was able to get two degrees.
