Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2000

I attended AIU back in 1999-2000 when it first opened its doors in Broward County, Florida. It was a brand new school that was hyped on the local radio stations as offering a chance for a very lucrative career in Information Technology. Being an older student (39), I wanted to change my career and enter the much more dynamic and exciting world of IT. So, I entered the Master's Degree program and from the very start I found a majority of the staff to be unprepared as well as inexperienced in the "real world" which was entirely contradictory to the information given to the media as well as to the potential students. In fact, at that time the school expanded into South Florida from Canada and brought it's new alumni to Florida to teach the classes. I met with the school President at the time many times which offered no satisfactory resolution. So, I did my own networking with other students who were already in the IT field in order to get some benefit from this program. I ended up with over $40,000 in student debt and a degree that really didn't benefit me. It took me 6 years to obtain a job in the IT field that payed me enough money that I could even begin to think about starting to repay my student loans. Only by taking the initiative myself through the years, I was finally able to get more training and experience so that I now finally make close to what I am worth. However, I am now struggling with over $100,000 in student debt that will never be repaid. I was very disappointed with my education at AIU, and they are now involved in a class action suit for this reason, among others. If they had been more honest from the start, i would have been more prepared to examine the value of my education compared to the actual cost. For the amount of money I spent at AIU for 18 months, I could have attended an actual college like UNF and gotten a degree that actually means something in the job market. Perhaps AIU has changed over the years, but I would recommend anyone trying to get into the IT field to go to a REAL college where the degree is actually worth the cost of the education.

It was best for me at the time because my family moves often.

Degree: Business

It's a great idea to have a further education than a high school diploma. People look at you like you are an expert after certain degree levels.

Amazing! It was convenient and I was able to learn at my own pace and it made it very easy for me to get my Master's degree as well as be a stay at home mom.

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2011

I don't know in the end how much my masters degree helped me find a better job. I hope when opening a home daycare the M.S.E.D will help me attract clients.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2010

This was an online program with a face to face concept. We logged in to a weekly class session where we were able to ask questions and interact with the professor and each other. What I learned has promoted me to be one of the highest salaries in my field as well as work in a position where I am applying what I learned and gaining more knowledge. I do not feel that I would be as successful in my career if I did not attempt this wonderful college. I am constantly promoting this school to anyone that asks where I earned my degree. If you are looking for the convenience of an online program with the rigor of a face to face program where you actually feel like you are learning and can apply knowledge, this is the perfect school!
