Student & Graduate Reviews

3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

I am currently enrolled as a graduate student at American Military University, part of the American Public University System, in their online International Relations and Conflict Resolution Masters Program.I find the program to be academically challenging and I enjoy that my classmates are current, former, or married to government personnel. As a civilian, this affords me the opportunity expand my knowledge base not only on the course material but on the practical application of such. Their financial aid does not appear to be extremely available but loans are clearly available.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2014

At times I feel I didn't receive the correct level of cooperation from staff. I was working on the police department at the time and had some issues with time and the level of work assigned. Overall it has been a great experience except for a few setbacks some of which were partially my fault for attempting to take on too much responsibility.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

I did my bachelor's here and basically I didn't like their financial aid process. It is difficult to navagate and they do not return calls when you leave a message.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate program at APUS is challenging and convenient. The professors and very accessible and communicate regularly with the students. The program is also very affordable. Being a working adult student with a family, the price of an education is just as important as the education itself.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2018

Con: Does not extend beyond a Master's degree program. Pros: One of the best online schools I've attended...and I've tried a few of the more popular online schools. In addition to their degree programs they have certificate programs that anyone can take. From registration to graduation this school has been helped me achieve my goals. This is a great school for retired or active military and other working professionals, no matter your field, who require a little more flexibility because of their busy work schedule.

The program has many pros. Transportation & Logistics Management is a broad field that is in continuous growth. Transportation of goods affects everyone and the importance of the logistics supply chain cannot be underestimated.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2014

I enjoy the Managment program at AMU because the teachers are very helpful. The environment that AMU provides is a no-fail zone. The teachers support this mission to the fullest. I never feel overwelmed by the workload that is required. Being affiliated with the military makes it hard to have time to meet deadlines, but the teachers are very flexible and support you 100%.

The transportation and logistics graduate program focuses on a field which is continuously growing. This is why it is important to develop professionals with the quality and skills necessary to manage the expected growth of our nation's import and export capabilities. While the program is relatively new to many, it's importance is recognized worldwide. Transportation is the most crucial link in every supply chain.

Pros: Online classes provide for great flexibility Cons: Teachers are only accessible through email so it may take days to get a response to even a simple question
1.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Entrepreneurship
Graduation Year: 2015

I completed a Bachelors program under American Military University and found the University to be very flexible and afforadable. I recently enrolled for their Graduate's program and am excited to go through this process. Unfortunately, the classes are rather expensive therefore I need a scholarship to be able to afford the classes.
