Minimum Number of Courses Required per Year

In order to remain enrolled as a student at APUS, you must register and complete at least one course in each 12-month period. If you do not complete at least one course every 12 months, you will be considered as having left the university, and you will be disenrolled. Courses that you drop during the first week do not meet this requirement. Other activities with the university other than course completion do not prevent you from being disenrolled.

  • If you are disenrolled from the university and wish to return later, you would be reapplying under the new program requirements in place at the time you reapply. This can cause loss of credit.

If you know you will need to take a break from your studies, you should submit the online Program Hold Request Form at no charge, so that your place in your program is reserved for you.

If you have any questions regarding the annual requirement, please contact studentservices@apus.edu.
