Helping Propel Our Airmen
At American Public University (APU), we take great pride in being an Air Force-friendly college. Through our online programs, you can complete your coursework whether you are at home or deployed. We're also committed to saving you time and money by awarding transfer credit for your prior college coursework and Air Force experience.
*The University reserves the right to accept or deny credits according to the policies outlined on these transfer credit webpages. Actual time to completion will be based upon transfer credit evaluation and eligibility.
Steps to Get Started
Complete Admissions Requirements
We are one of a select few academic institutions participating in the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) General Education Mobile (GEM) program. Through APU, you can fulfill the 15 general education credits needed to obtain a CCAF associate degree.
If you choose to continue your education journey, you can transfer your CCAF associate degree credits toward a bachelor's degree through our Air University Associate Baccalaureate Cooperative (AU-ABC).
Your Degree May Be Closer Than You Think
Let us help you get the credits you deserve. We accept many forms of professional military education, non-academic experience, and training based on guidance from the American Council on Education. These credit recommendations appear on the servicemember’s Joint Services Transcript (JST) or Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) transcript. We reserve the right to accept or deny credits according to policies outlined on our University website.
