Being an exclusively Online College American Military Univer

Jul 09 2013Business - Management and Administration
Being an exclusively Online College American Military University is a Subset of the American Public University System other wise known as APUS and does not differentiate itself from APUS. there is no distinction between an AMU student and an APUS Student. the Curriculum and teachers are specifically apart of APUS. a the teachers were admittedly very structured but at the same time very strict about the syllabus. there were apparently broken links within the given course material and incomplete information within the given curriculum. but a student couldn't progress faster than the instructor allowed. the student body didn't interact beyond the discussion boards and the lectures were non-existent the syllabus referred to ebooks needed to understand the study material but beyond the syllabus the ebooks were underutilized if utilized at all. the school maintains the Satisfactory Academic Program. the SAP is a way of keeping students with high GPA's in and Denying students struggling with their GPA's due process of fixing their GPA's. the School policy for students with FSA (Financial Student Aid) is to deny the students usage of it if they fail to meet the SAP requirements.The school is "reasonably priced" compared to private schools and ivy league schools. the University is finance-centric with hidden fees and extra fees that are associated with APUS.

all they want is

all they want is your money. I live a busy life style with a full time job and then some. if you dont constantly take course and give them money they hound you and drop you out of the degree. they want the easy veterans gi bill money and care about nothing else.

I completed my degree while on Active Duty

Jun 13 2013Philosophy
I completed my degree while on Active Duty and AMU offered the best ability to balance my career and my school. The instructors were all incredibly responsive and helpful. I don't know if it's still the case, but books were covered in tuition, so that was a nice perk in addition to being regionally accredited. The program was arduous and while I missed the peer interaction I'd get in a brick & mortar institution, it was still a positive experience. Nearly every exam was qualitative, requiring constructing analysis and composition. I definitely feel I earned my degree.

The only "low" side, other than lack of peer interaction, has been a slight stigma against online institutions which seems to be waning in recent years.If you are military, TA will cover all your tuition and get your books too, since they're included in tuition. I would not recommend any other institution higher for those wishing to pursue a degree online while active duty.
