American Public University System Reviews
APUS and AMU are perfect for those that want to further or begin their education while fulfilling obligations of work, parenthood, etc. Completely online, APUS/AMU offer almost every degree you would find at an in person college for both undergraduate and graduate programs. Military members, veterans, and their dependents have a tuition cap making it easily affordable compared to other 4 year institutions. The application process is made easy with continuous communication from the first click to graduation from all departments who are invested in your success. I have always been so impressed by the helpfulness of all departments with any and all questions I may have along the way. It's convinent, affordable, and even though it's online they make it feel personal and inclusive!
I have just finished my Bachelors in American History and the courses were challenging and the professors were pretty decent. I have heard it said that online courses are not difficult; I disagree. I have taken courses at traditional schools, and the online courses at American Public University System were hard, but enjoyable. APUS gives a quality education for a great price! I would recommend the online school to anyone who wants to start or further their education.
For those who are a little intimidated about pursuing their education or even hesitant because you don’t know where to start, American Public university is the best place for you. While serving active duty in the United States Marine Corps, I knew at some point in life I’d need more. When speaking the the representatives of APUS I was able to make a seamless transition into pursuing my education. The university was very flexible for me. deployments, temporary duty assignments, I was able to complete my mission without worrying about not submitting assignments on time. I am currently 12 classes into my degree and I must say it’s been an amazing experience. I feel myself getting wiser and more adapt to life because of thing things learned from the university, and I believe you can too!
