Value for the Long Term

APU ranks in the top 2% for a return on investment compared to colleges and universities nationwide, according to the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce report, A First Try at ROI: Ranking 4,500 Colleges, 2020, based on the 20-year net present value (NPV) for completers who received federal financial aid.

Recognized for Quality

APU is part of the accredited American Public University System (APUS). Several APU programs also have specialty accreditation from external organizations.
