American Public University System Reviews
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!
Overall the classes were good but my overall experience could have been better. After being with APUS for 2+ years and 4 classes shy of graduating I find out my financial aid is maxed out, so I immediately get on the phone to figure out solutions so I can finish school. There really are NONE! They don't offer scholarships and the only payment plan they have is to pay half up front when you register and the balance the first week of school. Mind you each class is about $900 so if your class were to start two weeks from registration you are pretty much forking out $900 on the spot. The financial aid office wasn't very helpful and couldn't offer me any help and said to apply for a private loan, of which Sallie Mae is the only lender I could find. Even with a co-signer that had excellent credit I could not get approved and scholarship websites are pretty much useless.
I think this is a wonderful collage for me being a single mom of a 4 year old and someone who also works two jobs at home as a customer service and reservations specialist! The flexibility to do school work sometime that week is amazing because I can do it around my own schedule and not have to worry that I am not going to have to miss work because of school. It makes my live so much easier to do I can be making money, earning my degree and taking care of my kid which are all very important to me!
