College For You?

Most of you probably don’t know that I attended college as a very non-traditional student. I went as a full time student for one year and the rest of the time I was going a variety of ways. I’ve done the community college thing, I’ve done the part time student thing, I’ve done the non-traditional weekend college thing. I’ve pretty much went to college any way you can think. (I’ve even taken online classes before anybody even offered online classes).

Since many online students are non-traditional students that favor a flexible school schedule, American Public University (APU) has stepped to the plate to allow these student to get a degree. APU offers classes on a monthly basis (versus semesters) with accelerated programs and flexible courses that enable students to earn degrees while balancing family and work demands. APU courses are 100% online, allowing students to obtain degrees from anywhere in the world – on their time, their schedules. They have over 100 online degrees and certificates in subjects ranging from homeland security to management and liberal arts to help students gain the knowledge and skills they need to advance their careers. APU’s tuition is among the lowest in the country for accredited online universities too:

• Undergraduate: $750 for a 3 credit course
• Graduate: $900 for a 3 credit course

They also allow you to transfer credit to them! If you are looking at going back to school, APU should be on your list of colleges to check out. I’ve gotten jobs just because I have a college degree (it sometimes doesn’t even matter what it’s in!). In this economy, a degree is a must and this is a great way to achieve that.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of American Public University. Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.

  1. I want to go back to college in a none traditional way also, so I will definitely be looking into APU. Thanks!

  2. thanks for sharing this ……..

  3. Wow, this sounds like a great way to go. As a returning student, I started out at community college, and the online classes and night classes were a huge help. Now that I've transferred to a four-year college, it's been hard to make the classes work around my regular schedule. The monthly classes sound like the way to go. And the price is pretty reasonable, too! Thanks for the info!
