Why Partner with Us

APUS offers more than 200 academic programs through American Public University (APU) and American Military University (AMU). We are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and also hold specialized accreditations in accounting, business, public health, nursing, and emergency and disaster management programs.

We built our online learning model specifically for working adults. Your workforce will study alongside other diverse, career-focused professionals located around the globe. Our flexible course schedule helps with time management, and our engaging online classroom and mobile app allow for anywhere, anytime studying.

We offer affordable tuition and minimal fees with no surprises. In fact, our combined undergraduate tuition, fees, and materials are approximately 16% less than the average 4-year public university’s in-state total published rates. We are 43% less when comparing graduate student tuition and fees. (According to The College Board Trends in College Pricing 2018, and National Center for Education Statistics Digest of Education Statistics 2017.)

We provide ebooks at no cost for students enrolled in undergraduate courses for credit through our university's undergraduate book grant. This is estimated to save $1,250 per academic year* for full-time students, according to the *College Board Trends in Higher Education report.

Additional Partnership Benefits

We provide your organization with metrics and reporting to help with your succession planning and to demonstrate the return on your workforce development investment.

Partner organizations receive dedicated webpages highlighting programs relevant to their industry and workforce. This makes it easy for employees to access information about the partnership such as relevant degree and certificate programs as well as detailed information on how to receive benefits.

Your organization will be supported by a client services manager who will help you promote the academic partnership benefits to your workforce. You also receive reporting so leadership can track employee progression and performance.

You can feel confident referring your employees to APU or AMU. Our partnership admissions team will help them take full advantage of partnership benefits and guide them in making the best choices to meet their educational goals.

Eliminate paperwork by choosing the option of making a direct payment in one invoice for all students from your organization each semester.
