Educating Those Who Serve.®

Please view recent changes to the Coast Guard Tuition Assistance (TA) program.

As one of the largest providers of academic programs to the U.S. Coast Guard, AMU offers the right blend of mission relevant courses and degree programs to those seeking to enhance their careers in a meaningful way.

Our degree programs such as Homeland Security, Intelligence and Criminal Justice are tailor-made for those entrusted with protecting the public, our borders, and security interests around the globe.

See why more than 1,000 Coast Guardsmen are current AMU students. We specialize in  meeting the needs of “those who serve.”

American Military University (AMU) is proud to join the schools offering degree programs in support of the SOCCOAST Servicemember Opportunity Colleges (SOC) Degree Network System, a system of college curriculum networks designed by SOC for Coast Guard Servicemembers and their adult family members.

As part of SOCCOAST, colleges have agreed to accept each other's courses in a particular program of study. Students can move freely among the colleges in a network without having to worry about whether or not major related courses will transfer. View the SOCCOAST Degree Network System matrix with the approved AMU degree programs eligible for the SOCCOAST Degree Network System.

Our AMU's Education Coordinators help students at more than 125 U.S. bases including Clearwater CG Air Station, Elizabeth City CG Support Center, Petuluma CG Training Center, and many others.
