    An Affordable, Quality Education is Within Reach.

    Rising college costs have many of our nation’s hard-working professionals feeling left behind when it comes to making their higher education goals a reality. At American Public University, we believe it doesn’t have to be that way. At APU you’ll find programs that align to industry trends and are backed by individual support teams dedicated to helping you succeed. Our commitment to affordability doesn’t mean sacrificing quality

    Consistently Affordable Rates

    While educational costs are rising in most places, at APU we’ve raised our undergraduate rates just once since we were founded in 1991. Don’t sacrifice quality for cost. At APU, you get both.

    Undergraduate $270 per credit hour $250/credit hour with military grant Graduate $350 per credit hour $325/credit hour with military grant
    • Earn credits for your experience. Don’t leave your hard-earned credits behind. See if you can fast-track your education by earning credit for prior life experiences, college courses, or military service.
    • Books online at no cost. If you're taking an undergrad course for credit, your course materials are included. This can save you about $1,200/year if you’re enrolled full time, according to the College Board 2017-2018 Trends in College Pricing.
    • Serving the military. Active-duty servicemembers and their spouses/dependents, Guard, Reserve, and veterans receive a tuition grant. And we waive technology fees for active-duty, Guard, and Reserve servicemembers using military TA.
    • Help when you need it. Our excellent support staff can walk you through ways to fund your education, including FSA, military TA, veterans benefits, scholarships, private loans, and employer contributions.
