Has anyone ever gone to american military university online or any other university online?

If so did you graduate and were you able to find a job? I am just very apprehensive about doing online schooling because I have heard so many bad things about it. So I need some positive input.

  • Stay away from for-profit schools. They exist, by law, to make money for their owners/shareholders; education is not their priority. When I was in HR, I did not interview candidates from the for-profit schools.

    Start with a community college; they will likely have many classes on line and the credits will easily transfer to a state university.

  • I am currently an online AS in Medical Assisting student at Kaplan University and am finding it to be a very thorough program. I will have to take on campus courses as well due to the nature of my program. Clinical studies and an externship at a local health care facility are necessary. I checked in to a lot of programs and this one works for me. I live in Maine and signed up at Andover College, which changed to Kaplan University during my first term.

    Good Luck
