    Apu?

    I'm thinking about taking APU's online chemistry course, has anyone here taken their course? Is APU fully accrediated?

    American Public University System (APUS) is accredited by DETC.
    APUS is a Candidate with the Higher Learning Commission and an affiliate of the North Central Association. APUS accreditation site visit planned for Feb. 6-8. The next step in the process is to host a four-member evaluation team from other regional member institutions, as they conduct their site visit February 6-8, 2006. The evaluation team will make an accreditation recommendation to the North Central Association's Higher Learning Commission, which will inform the University System of its decision in mid-April.

    That should answer your question.

    If you're considering taking it to transfer to most institutions, you'll have a problem, since they don't have regional accreditation yet. They're a good school, and I expect they'll get it, but that doesn't help you in the meantime.

    Thanks for the help I dont need to take this course until next year, so I will probably know by then. BTW I'm a Houston native.

    Southeast, I will be glad when APU can get their regional accrediation, because their intro to chemistry class looks great, APU emailed me their course syllabus. I need intro to chemistry for nursing school. Once I'm done with all of my pre-reqs I plan to have all of my college transcripts placed on one transcript by exclsior. I talked with Exclsior today and they said they would only accept a regional accrediated campus, but I just talked wiwth APU and they said they are nationally accrediated and they always accept excslior students, and they said they dont why excslior wouldn't accept credits from them?

    I am not sure why the question. It clearly states on their website that they are DETC A and a candidate for regional.

    Thomas Edison State College accepts transfer credits from schools which are candidates for regional accreditation. Perhaps you could consider Thomas Edison State College instead of Excelsior College.

    APU is not brought up as often as some other schools, but the link below is the result of a search for APU on DI.

    Take a look at the threads in the search to find DI members who are [have] considered APU and contact them directly.

    You may also want to contact students that have attended American Military University (AMU) since APUS and AMU are essentially the same university.

    I believe Ted Heiks has attended AMU and would more than likely not mind sharing his experience. Ted...are you listening? :)

    I actually am in the Military Studies program. I am taking a historiography course as we speak. Just as demanding as the courses I took at UH and NCCU. It is RC 576. We have a 20 page paper, 4-6 page Oral History Interview and 6 2-3 page book reviews. I would say that is quite demanding.

    I am currently enrolled in the Associate of Arts General Studies programme at APU. I have enjoyed the courses thus far, perhaps a bit too much and overdid it last year.

    I'm in the process of taking the first 5 classes for the graduate certificate in Emergency and Disaster Mgt. Man, is it a lot of work! It is very rigorous.

    I noticed they dropped a lot of their grad programs like Human Resources , etc... What are left are mostly military/government type programs, but this is their niche, anyway. I have no doubt they'll get their RA, they are definitely a good outfit. Outside of the *%*!# hard work they make me do, I’m impressed.
