| For a military member in a time of instability due to deployments, TDYs, and more work with fewer resources, AMU is an excellent alternative to traditional schools. Where I am stationed, there are plenty of local opportunities; however, none were as accommodating as AMU. |
The issues I have with local schools are the travel time to the campus, the fixed/inflexible schedules, and those of the faculties who are not very empathetic to your situation.
The positives of AMU are it is regionally accredited, TA covers the class AND books, career related programs (mine is Space Studies), flexibility to manage your time, and most of the facility are/were in the military and very understanding. In addition, AMU is now part of the Air Force's, Air University-Associates to Baccalaureate Cooperative Program adding to the school's creditability.AMU and distance learning are great alternatives to the in-residence universities, because these allow for personal management of your most valuable resource, time. If you possess self-discipline, time-management skills, and personal accountability, AMU is an excellent choice.

| I have been attending AMU for 1 year and was a little intimidated at first since I had never taken online classes. Once4 I got started taht all went away. the work is challenging and writing based. If you think you're going to pay your money and get credit like some other online schools, you're wrong. If you want to buy your degree this is not the palce for you. They will challenge you and ensure you know your stuff. Great experience. Only one semester left! |

| I have been taking classes with AMU for 2 years now. My transfer-credits were evaluated and accepted fairly. As a soldier in the Army, this school provides me the flexibility to work, go to the field, and still complete my education goals. I would recommend this school to anyone! The faculty is helpful and willing to work with you. The couse work is ecellent, and challenging. It is well worth the investment! |
