American InterContinental University reviews

letibug
This is the only online university that offers a BS in Forensic Sciences (so my choices are, as an understatement, limited).  Has anyone gone through AIU?  Any info, recommendations, warnings, reviews, advice?????  Want to get as much info as possible before I jump.
Thanks!

Are you here in the U.S. or another country?  Are you wanting to work here in the US?

AIU is a great school but they are not the only one that offers forensic science or CSI classes.  After recieving my associates through them and was looking at the course work for the bachelor, I noticed that the forensic part of their coursework is just general knowledge and after you graduate with your Bachelor, you will still need extra work from another school to get what you actually need for your job.  Another school that offers this is Salem Intercontinental University in which I am now attending.  They offer classes like blood spatter, fingerprints, photography and many more while taking your general classes.  I hope this helps if it isn't too late.

Hi!  I'm in San Diego, California.  The only brick & mortar school I've found in the area only offers a certificate.  I'm interested in getting a Bachelors.  So it seems like I'm down to online schools at this point.

You have chosen a really interesting and adventurous career. Forensic science technicians apply scientific principles for the investigation of clues found at the crime site.
Entering into this career is also very easy as it needs only a minimum of associate degree. Many colleges offer forensic science courses. But since you are not getting courses in traditional education system, you can achieve your goal through online education also. The site http://www.forensicsciencetechnician.net/forensic-science-technician-program-rankings/ has information about some top ranked colleges and there online courses on forensic science. Even for this career full time college would not allow you to fulfill your wish. You need to get experience from outside world also, which can be done only through online courses.

Genius is seldom recognized for what it is: a great capacity for hard work.

Hi, I  am french, actually living in Spain and looking for a degree/master to complete my career.  I have an BA in Spanish language and lit, which did not really lead me to any job that I liked and afterwards I studied in the spanish system a 3 years diploma which is Criminology and security sciences, which englobes what I would call an "introduction" to criminalistics.  I was looking for an online program but over the years, I have been deceived by quite a lot of "so called GREAT programs" that ended up to be real s**t.  My own university back in spain sold their program as great and it seemed so, but the 2sd and 3rd year turned up to be really deceiving.
Anyways, I was wonderinf if your comment on the univ you are attending means that this specific program could be "better" or "much better" than it really is...I would not like to spend that much money one more time and be deceived.
There are really great American univs, and I like your studying system much better but than mine but with such a vast choice, it is quite dificult to find the best degree, master and well, talking with students that are enrolled, professionals and so on...it might help narrow down a bit to what one thinks suits him/her better.
I hope I get a feedback from you soon.
Best regards,
AG
