Q: How do I participate in the Navy College Program Distance Learning Partnership with AMU?

A: Students should follow the steps below to participate in the Navy Distance Learning Partnership with AMU.

  • Step 1: Students choose their program of study and review the admissions criteria. 

  • Step 2: Students complete and submit the online application for admission. There is no fee. They are asked to give us information about their previous educational experiences, including names, dates of attendance, etc. and declare their academic program. During the application process, students receive their AMU student ID number and password which is needed each time they log into the electronic campus.

  • Step 3: Students complete orientation and build their degree. In orientation, they learn about AMU's academic and financial policies and rights as a student.

  • Step 4: Next step is to submit all necessary documentation within 15 weeks from the date of their application. If they are a transfer student or have military or civilian training certificates for evaluation, they submit the Transfer Credit Evaluation (TCE) application along with a one time fee of $50.  As of August 20, 2010 this fee has been waived for all active duty military, guard, and reserve personnel.  AMU requests all official U.S. college transcripts on a student’s behalf when we receive their signed Transcript Release Authorization form (TRA).  If a student plan to use Federal Student Aid (FSA) to finance their education, they must complete the Statement of Intent form and choose a start date.

  • Step 5: Register for courses.  Students log into the Electronic Campus and open their Academic Plan, click on the course(s) they would like to take first, then follow the prompts to register.  Undergraduates are required to take RQ295 as one of their first courses.  If they are using Federal Student Aid (FSA), students must register for the same number of credit hours that was declared on their Statement of Intent form.* All students receiving Federal Student Aid must register for the entire Academic Semester to comply with FSA regulations. Students pursuing Associate degrees or certificate programs may not use FSA to finance their program of study.It would be the responsibility of the student to forward a copy of his or her evaluation.
