    Pros

    APU is a great middle option between community college and standard Universities. The classes are intended for full-time working adults meaning anyone going full-time as a student can do 4 courses at once with relative ease.

    Cons

    Site can go down and some Professors are better than others but in my experience it was extremely simple and with very little in the way of major stress.
