American Public University System Graduate Reviews
American Public University is a great school for students looking for a online university. The staff are friendly, helpful, and eager to help you succeed. There are many difficult processes when enrolling and/or being in College but the staff and process to receive help addressing any issues that arise is great!
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.
Good solid education but you HAVE TO BE self motivated. It’s the epitome of independent study. The professor is available for questions and guidance but the lions share of the work is independent. It’s the way school was long ago and if you are not good at independent direction and self learning you will find it difficult. The staff and faculty are extremely supportive. I absolutely recommend this school if you have the mettle!
