Army Tuition Assistance

Checklist

Our Mission Is Making College Affordable

No wonder we've had so many Armed Forces graduates.

At APU, we believe in educating, inspiring and making dreams come true for the many, not just the few. That’s why we support you in navigating tuition assistance so you can maximize your benefits. We want to make your transition from military base to virtual classroom as seamless and affordable as possible. This is one small way we can thank you for your service. 

Books and Materials

A University book grant provides textbooks/ebooks at no cost to all undergraduate students. Some programs will have additional course material costs not covered by the University book grant. Simply select the course in your Academic Plan to review the required materials.

Please note that our Freedom Grant provides most course materials at no cost for master’s-level courses to active-duty servicemembers, National Guard members, Reservists, and military spouses/dependents.
