I found Amberton while looking for a college to complete my second master's degree. I have an MS in Adult Education and wanted to get a more focused degree to advance my knowledge in the field I'm currently working in, which is faulty and staff professional development. I opted for AU because they are fully accredited, offer numerous online degrees, and are the most affordable of any college I found. The quality of education is excellent and I like that I can plan my classes well in advance. They post a master schedule that lists when each class will be offered during the year and often offer several sections of each class so you can choose the professor and text book you think is best for you.Admissions, registration, and student services couldn't be easier. They took many of the credits from my prior master's degree so I will be able to finish this one in 18 months (2 months left to go as of this writing). Payment plans make it easy to pay as you go without incurring debt.As a state technical college administrator, I often recommend AU to our faculty and staff. I would, without hesitation, recommend AU for anyone who wants a quality, accredited (regional accreditation is needed for credit transfer) higher education experience.
