American InterContinental University Online Regretful "Graduate" Schaumburg Illinois
I decided to attend AIUonline, in 2010, since I had two young children to care for at home. It started out great, but I should have quit during my first class after seeing they accept anyone into their university. I had a few people in my class who couldn't even form a whole sentence. I admit they were weeded out as my classes continued, but even half way through my program there were still a few who could not write a sentence that made sense. Even some who copied my discussion board posts word for word.. It's pretty sad that this university will accept illiterate people..now those poor people who probably already have a rough life are in debt.
This school is a joke, the assignments are a joke, the advisors stalk you...it's a for-profit school..so all they want is their money. The classes are 5 weeks long..You have 1 essay assignments and 2 discussion board assignments a week per class. These assignments take up a lot of time so you don't even have time to read the books all the way through. Most of the time the question had nothing to do with anything in the books. I guess that's why the books were included in with tuition. They don't even test you about the material you learned! The only class with a test was Algebra!
So, if you want a school where you could get straight A's just by doing the easy essay questions and super eary discussion board assignments, this school is for you! This school would probably be ok for someone who is already working in the field and just need a degree to get a promation but if you're looking for an entry-level position I suggest checking with your local community college to see if they offer any online classes..most do and are a lot more affordable!
