AIU Online / Terrible experience

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

I attended AIU Online a year or so ago. Due to family complications I had to drop out and am I ever happy that I did.

I recently re-enrolled in a school nearby. I requested a transcript to be sent to my new school. AIU has been on probation for YEARS! Credits won't transfer, this school is going to close because of this. I wasted time and money, I'm still paying for my student loans from this school and the classes I took mean nothing...I want answers why was I told this was an accredited university when they are and have been on the verge of losing it??

Don't waste your time on this school!

    I don't know where you get this information. AIU is an accredited school they are not at risk of losing it either. get your facts right. Only reason your credits wont transfer is that's the new school course don't match to the course offer at aiu.

    I am four classes away from graduating from AIU. I am not sure how the credit transfer process will work, but I do know that AIU standards suck. They let anyone into their school. I am not proud to say that I am graduating from AIU. There are so many uneducated people getting degrees just because they pay tuition. Getting your degree should be based on the knowledge aquired while attending the school. It makes me sick!

    I am NOT defending AIU, however, please realize that most community colleges also accept anyone who is able to pay for classes. Many times these schools only require a prospective student to take placement tests. AIU does require a prospective undergraduate student to prove that person has a US High School diploma or equivalent. With regard to transfer credit, it is always up to the school to which one is transferring as to whether previous course work is accepted. No school ever guarantees course work will transfer. AIU is accredited and always has been. Yes AIU was on probation for 2 years. AIU has recently switched accrediting bodies moving from SACS to NCA. A word to the wise, always check out any school thoroughly before enrolling there.
