Welcome from the President

Whether you’re visiting as a prospective student or checking in as one of our 105,000 alumni, I would like to welcome you to the student-centric learning community of American InterContinental University. It’s an honor for me, as the University’s president, to build upon AIU’s strong foundation and help students realize their full potential.

For 50 years, AIU has helped students personally, professionally and academically. Our regionally-accredited institution emphasizes the teaching of marketable knowledge and skills that can help motivated professionals pursue opportunities in business, healthcare management, information technology, criminal justice, design and education.

Our degree programs are specifically designed to blend focused knowledge with practical, skills-based experiences you can leverage as you prepare for the challenges and opportunities found in today's competitive job market. AIU has been widely recognized for its innovative programs and approach to fostering student success. Our online bachelor’s degree programs were ranked on U.S. News & World Report’s Best Online Bachelor’s Programs listing for 2019, and our online M.Ed. program was also ranked by U.S. News in its Best Online Graduate Education Programs listing.

AIU has received multiple awards recognizing our service to military students as well. We were named among the Military Times Best: Colleges 2018 rankings and Best for Vets: Colleges 2020 rankings, which are based on a comprehensive school-by-school assessment of veteran and military student services and rates of academic-achievement. In 2017, we were named a “Top School” in the Military Advanced Education 2017 Guide to Colleges and Universities for the 10th year in a row and also were ranked by U.S. News & World Report among the Best Online Bachelor’s Programs for Veterans.

We have a tremendous team here that is committed to serving students and fulfilling AIU’s mission of preparing you academically, personally and professionally.

At AIU, you're in control. You can attend classes at one of our traditional ground campuses, study online with the award-winning intellipath® personalized learning platform,1 or choose a flexible combination of both that conveniently adapts to your current schedule and responsibilities.

Maybe you're seeking a degree to complement the experience you already have in your current job. Or perhaps you've identified a field of interest you'd like to pursue academically and professionally. At AIU, our students’ success is our success. That’s why we have an unwavering commitment to ensure that students are exposed to the skills and knowledge that can help them pursue their career goals now and in the future.

Once you discover the refreshingly-different approach we take to help you pursue your goals, we hope you'll want to take part in our growing community.
