I have been attending AMU/APU (both part ofBrightCriminal
I have been attending AMU/APU (both part of APUS - American Pulbic University System - for nearly a year now. I have had a wonderful experience. All of my Professors are down to earth and very helpful. I never have to wait for a response either. The admin staff is also helpful, as is my student advisor. Enrolling and registering for new classes each semester is easy and fast. The cost is inexpensive at only $250 a credit hour and they pay for and ship you all of your books if you are an undergrad. I would not attend any other online college (based on much research).

Love AMU!Quite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Love AMU! Some folks have concerns about accreditiation and have susggested looking at websites to check out AMU's accrediation. If they would have listed the official name of the university, American Public University System, they would have found it is regionally accredited by the North Central Association. :) If you are looking for online classes, this is the place to be..even if you are not military. The do specialize in that arena..and although someone in an earlier post stated they did not understand TA etc..had to have been a plant..because after serving 27 years in the Air Force and attending many schools, I can say they totally get it and are extremely helpful. Great school...quality education...caring professors...for undergrads they pay for all your books. I cannot say enough great things about this school.

AMU has been great.Quite BrightCriminal
AMU has been great. I move constantly with my wife being active in the military and me in the reserves. I went to a junior college for my electives which I would suggest to most because of cost. I use my GI Bill for AMU which is working fine. AMU also accepted 26 credits from the military (SMART transcripts) that my junior college would not.

The instructors have a wealth of knowledge. Most have graduated from service academies, war colleges, etc. and have real world experience. They also understand that many students are working as well so are flexible with turn in dates for assignments. The school is also pretty demanding. No easy A's here.

The types of classes are great as well. I didn't find any other schools that offered counter terrorism as a concentration and I believe that AMU is only one of two RA schools that offer a masters in strategic inteligence.

AMU is geared towards those that which to work in the emergency management field or other government areas. Most students are military which makes the environment comfortable talking with like minded individuals. Going to a junior college as a 27 year old outside DC with 18 liberals in no fun. Most of the AMU students are there for one reason, an education. I would definatly recomend AMU for the quality of the education and ease of use.
