| I've just finished my first year at AMU and am completely satisfied with the experience. For instance, I changed majors without a headache. As a matter of fact, it was completed in a couple of days and all I had to do was reply to a couple of emails. The schoolwork is what you make of it, because you aren't being lectured it solely relies on you to get the most out of it. I like the flexibility to spend a whole weekend doing homework, and virtually finishing half of an 8-week class in 2 days. And because there aren't breaks for holidays and the such, I'm not pressured to get things done early. In terms of my degree program, AMU is the most comprehensive degree course I've ever seen. My degree program is in Intelligence Studies, and have yet to find another school with the same coursework. Yes, some of the classes, especially the general studies bloc seem very infantile and uninspiring, the fact that military Tuition Assistance pays 100% makes it very easy to deal with. Overall it is a great school that expects the best out of its students, for instance, my last class I got a 89.9%. A 90% would have given me a 4.0 for the class. Think of it what you will, but diplomas aren't just thrown around in this school. |

| I have been taking classes with AMU since 2008 and I am finishing my last class this month. I am very happy with this school and satisfied with what I accomplished. This is not a degree mill. You really have to work for your grades and study hard. I plan on going to a different online school for my Masters degree but this is a good school to get your CCAF and B.A. completed because it is flexible and is made for military students. I did not have any bad experiences with the school. the bad reviews for this school come from people who do not know how to study and work hard. If you work full time and have children, go to AMU and finish your undergrad work because you will not have to pay for your books. |

| I am active duty US Navy currently attending AMU/APUS in the Business Management Bachelors program. This school is entirely online which makes completing the degree quite easy. The school is accredited both regionally and nationally under the American Public University System (APUS) which is the parent school to AMU. Search American Military University on http://www.ope.ed.gov/accreditation/Search.aspx and it will bring up APUS and the accreditations that it holds.|
To the classes themselves. The instructors tend to be very helpful (so far) and answer questions in a timely manner. The classes are well formatted and informative. Attending is flexible and the learning is great. They transfered a great deal of my credits from my Associates degree.
The only class I have taken that I did not agree with is the required Intro to online learning. But it is a school requirement and almost all colleges have some type of intro course they require you take.Overall this college is great for anyone on a tight schedule that can not attend a hard stand school.
