Program Admission Requirements
All APU graduate and graduate certiciate programs require you to have earned a minimum of a bachelor’s degree from an institution whose accreditation is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
If you have a non-business-related bachelor's degree, or you have a bachelor's degree in a business program that is NOT accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), or the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE), your required first courses here will be:
- ENTR500 Ideation
- BUSN601 Global Management Perspective
- BUSN602 Managerial Analysis
- BUSN603 Quantitative Analysis
Note: You may enroll in other courses only after you have completed these 4 courses.
If you have a bachelor's degree in a business program that is accredited by ACBSP, AACSB, or IACBE, you are NOT required to take BUSN601, BUSN602, or BUSN603, and instead may take 3 master’s-level elective courses after completing ENTR500. Your admissions representative will need to review your bachelor's transcript to verify this information.
Please be prepared to submit a legible copy of your valid government-issued photo ID (civilian students) or government-issued JST or CCAF transcript (military students) upon request.
An APU admissions representative will contact you with further details about how to submit the required documentation after you complete the enrollment application.
Technology fees: $65 per course | $0 for active-duty military servicemembers, and for National Guard and Reserve personnel when using military TA.
Selecting the right program to meet your educational goals is a key step in ensuring a successful outcome. If you are unsure of which program to choose, or need more information, please contact an APU admissions representative at 877-755-2787 or email@example.com.
