Continue Your Journey

Maximize your credits at a transfer-friendly university. At American Public University (APU), you enjoy the convenience and flexibility of online learning as you work toward your bachelor’s degree.

At APU, you can apply up to 90 credits toward a bachelor’s degree through transfer credit for eligible prior learning, work experience, or professional training.* And that’s just the beginning of how we help community college students and graduates break barriers to higher education.

To support your quest for further learning, we evaluate and apply transfer credit at no cost. Typically, your evaluation can be completed in five days.

Join motivated professionals from business, healthcare, and public service communities in learning how your academic achievements thus far can move you closer to a bachelor’s degree at APU.

* The University applies transfer credits within current policies and procedures.
