APUS and AMU are perfect for those that want to further or begin their education while fulfilling obligations of work, parenthood, etc. Completely online, APUS/AMU offer almost every degree you would find at an in person college for both undergraduate and graduate programs. Military members, veterans, and their dependents have a tuition cap making it easily affordable compared to other 4 year institutions. The application process is made easy with continuous communication from the first click to graduation from all departments who are invested in your success. I have always been so impressed by the helpfulness of all departments with any and all questions I may have along the way. It's convinent, affordable, and even though it's online they make it feel personal and inclusive!

For those who are a little intimidated about pursuing their education or even hesitant because you don’t know where to start, American Public university is the best place for you. While serving active duty in the United States Marine Corps, I knew at some point in life I’d need more. When speaking the the representatives of APUS I was able to make a seamless transition into pursuing my education. The university was very flexible for me. deployments, temporary duty assignments, I was able to complete my mission without worrying about not submitting assignments on time. I am currently 12 classes into my degree and I must say it’s been an amazing experience. I feel myself getting wiser and more adapt to life because of thing things learned from the university, and I believe you can too!
I was seeking info on this university specifically for their online degrees. I heard so many awesome things about them and what they do for our military and their families. I haven’t started classes yet, but hope too very soon. They have been very helpful so far providing me with answers to all my questions and resources that will help pay for school. I can’t wait to start my new journey with AMU!
