Steps to Get Started
APU MILITARY GRANT
We are committed to helping our military students find additional savings beyond the military TA. We help you limit out-of-pocket costs by offering low tuition rates, a tuition grant, an undergraduate and master's-level book grant, and much more.
The Army’s credentialing assistance program is a training program that supports your professional development in your current MOS or in an occupation that you decide to pursue when you leave military service.
You can return to your program if you submitted a request to place your program on hold prior to a military deployment or if you did not make any progress on your academic program for a full year.
A Few Reasons Why We Are #1* APU Removes Barriers
*Alumni Graduated with No APUS-incurred Student Loan Debt
As of December 31, 2021. Includes alumni who graduated with an associate, bachelor's, or master's degree from APUS. Student loan debt is defined as student loans and private education loans used for tuition, fees, living expenses, and book costs associated with courses taken at APUS. Many APUS students receive military tuition assistance and veterans education benefits, which are not student loan debt.
