American National University - Roanoke Valley Reviews

Some classes where fun but the overall experience is not worth it.Once I was approved and they got my student loan, they instantly stopped contacting me. I do NOT recommend anyone to go here. First of all, once they get all of their tuition out of your loans, the remaining amount they keep. Makes no sense , and that is legally stealing because those funds aren't returned to the government or you. But you still have to pay it back with interest. This school is highly unethical and shouldn't even be open. I wish I would have did more research but I am $11,000 worth of debt because of it. Please don't go to this college.

This is a great college for gifferent generations and ethics all over. Not only are they committed to their students they be sure you have your learning materials. I didn't have a laptop when I first started but they helped me to receive my own. The schedule is very flexible and for a single mom like me it really helps out. I will stay at this school until I graduate and then I plan to go for my bachelor's degree afterwards. I am a freshman this is my first year in college. I just recently graduated highschool and the staff was amazing helping me get enrolled an showing they actually cared about me meant alot.
After finishing classes in April and even before graduation I have been told countless times by employers that they do not recognize the credits from this school. The city of Tulsa which is where I moved to try to find work even went as far as to say that I would not qualify for any city jobs.

The actual teachers were good and knew their subjects though often times they would have to do last minute reading to make sure they knew what they were teaching.

My issue is with administration though I am sure they will pass the blame on the students just like the previous one.

In general You would be better off spending the money on a house for a better return on investment. There is a high probability that you will end up in a low wage position after graduating. I obtained 2 different degrees from this school. It will likely not exist in a few years due to its dependence on national accreditation over regional
