Welcome back to AMU! We are excited that you have chosen to return to pursue a second degree. As a returning alumnus, you will not need to re-submit the AMU online application; however, there are several steps that you will need to take to get enrolled in your new degree.
To get started, alumni must have their previous AMU Student ID. If you no longer have access to your Student ID, please visit the following link to retrieve your ID: Forgot ID?
Now that you have your Student ID, the admissions team has developed a series of downloads that you will need, as a returning alumnus, to complete your new program enrollment. Please visit the following links for more information regarding next steps and frequently asked questions (FAQs):
I completed my degree at APUS and want to return for another program. Do I need to submit a new application?
No, you do not need to submit a new application; in fact, you will not be able to submit one. Instead, you complete a "New Program Enrollment Application" (NPE) form. You can find it under the Forms Menu, the OTHER FORMS link, on the left side of your E-Campus; it’s in that list. After you submit it, you will receive an email from your advising team asking you to verify this request. Be sure to respond to this email.
How do I access my previous student account?
To access your student account, visit the website for American Military University or American Public University, depending on the school from which you graduated. Once on the appropriate website, click on the "current students" login link in the upper right corner and enter your student ID and password to gain access to your e-campus.
I no longer remember my student ID and/or password.
If you no longer remember your Student ID and/or Password, there is a "Forgot ID or Password" link in the student login section; click on it, and this information will be emailed to you. If you are not able to retrieve your information after clicking this link, call the Admissions department at 1.877.777.9081 for assistance.
What if my contact information has changed?
You can change you contact information via the "Change Contact Information" link in the left side of your E-Campus. As you will receive ALL communication to the email we have on file, it is extremely important that you provide your current email address.
Where can I find the “New Program Enrollment (NPE) Application”?
You can find it under the Forms Menu on the left side of your E-campus; click on the OTHER FORMS link, and it’s in that list.
How long will the NPE take to process?
The NPE process can take up to 10 business days. Be sure you respond to the verification email you receive from your advising team so that your requested change can go through
Will my credits from my earned degree at APUS be applied toward my new degree?
If the APUS degree you earned is on the same academic level (e.g., Undergraduate), then that credit will be evaluated toward your new undergraduate degree program. These previously earned credits will have to meet all transfer credit requirements to be applied toward your new degree.
How do I transfer college credit earned from another institution?
Once the NPE process is complete and your program has been updated, submit the “Transfer Credit Evaluation (TCE) Application,” found under the Forms Menu on the left side of your E-Campus.
What if I previously submitted the TCE but have newly earned credits?
Submit a “TCE Update Request Form” available from the Forms Menu on the left side of your e-campus; click on OTHER FORMS, and it’s in that list.
I previously submitted the TCE application and paid or had the fee waived; will I be required to pay the TCE fee again?
No, the TCE fee is a one-time fee.
How many credits can I receive during the TCE?
If you are entering an Associate degree, you can receive a maximum of 46 credits toward your program; if you are entering a Bachelor’s degree, you can receive a maximum of 91 credits; and if you are entering a Master’s program, you can receive a maximum of 15 credits.
What is the cost per semester credit hour?
Undergraduate tuition is $250 per semester hour.
Graduate tuition is $325 per semester hour.
What types of financing are available?
APUS accepts many forms of tuition financing from public and private sources: military tuition assistance (TA), federal student aid (FSA), VA/GI bill benefits, private loans, and employer voucher.
It has been a while since I took an online course; are resources available?
We have a variety of resources to help you with our online classroom environment. Please take a moment to view the short, 4-minute demo of the classroom or attend a live Virtual Open House on the classroom. You can request recorded versions of this open house as well.
It’s the first day of classes; what should I do?
Courses open at 6:00am ET on the first Monday of the month. Log in to you courses by clicking on the “Enter Classes” button on the top left of the E-Campus. Each course has a syllabus available that you should open, read, and save for future reference.
You are required to log in to each course at least once during the first week and complete the first week discussion board forum. If you do not complete this, you will be dropped from the course. The discussion board forum post should be a minimum of 250 words.
