Hello fellow families!

I am looking to see if any of your Marines have experience with attending the American Military University? Pros/cons?

My Marine is looking into attending, and I want to give her good guidance, especially in light of the recent issues with the recent closure/issues with Everest Colleges.

Any feedback would be appreciated!

I received my bachelor's of arts from American Military University and I had a fantastic experience! I went on a well-known grad school with no problem. They are regionally accredited which is what employers and graduate schools look at heavily. I actually went to my brother's Navy OCS graduation a few years ago and they announce the colleges in which they graduated from and one of them was AMU! Again, I had an absolute fantastic experience. My husband received his AA from there as well and moved on to Eastern Kentucky University due to them having the degree program he wanted, but again no issues with transfer credits and AMU gave him a lot of credit for military experience! I hope that helps!
