Helping Propel Our Guardians
At American Public University (APU), we take great pride in being a Space Force-friendly college. Our classes are online with no set login times and start every month, so you can begin on your schedule. We 're also committed to saving you time and money by awarding transfer credit* for your prior college coursework and Space 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 RequirementsAfter you submit your admissions application, review the undergraduate or graduate admissions ecampus tutorial and relevant tuition checklists (financial aid and military TA). An admissions representative will walk you through the follow-up steps you need to get started.
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 requirement 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. We reserve the right to accept or deny credits according to policies outlined on our University website.
