This review is based on my experience at APUS, having gained my AS in Computer Applications there. First, the classes, the system and the overall approach I like. Its simple, effective and the work is enough but not unapproachable for a working adult. That said, this review is negative because of the financial aide department. IT IS ABSOULUTLEY THE WORST I have ever encountered in the 38 years of my life. I cant go to school because they keep screwing shit up. Not to mention, they done my wife the same way so I know its not a fluke. Theres no inter office communication, so if you dont obtain one individual to deal with then you will constantly be repeating yourself day in and out submitting the same information 20 times and getting no where. Its utter ridiculousness.

So understand this - if I were reviewing the school based on the degree program, professors and the content then Im totally satisfied. However, Im not - Im submitting this review on the financial aide department - its ridiculous and is so frustrating I will not continue my education here.

I was previously a DeVry student and I left because of the HUGE cost, I miss it. I guess you get what you pay for.
