Our Mission Is Making College Affordable

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

At American Public University, 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

The University provides ebooks at no cost to all undergraduate, doctoral and Preferred Military Rate-eligible1 students. A hard-copy textbook is provided at no cost if an ebook is not available. Some programs will have additional course material costs. Simply select the course in your Academic Plan to review the required materials.

1All U.S. active-duty servicemembers, National Guard members, Reservists, and military families, (parents, spouses, legal partners, siblings, and dependents) are eligible for the Preferred Military Rate of $250/credit for undergraduate and master’s-level courses.
