Graduate Admissions for Veterans

Ecampus Tutorial

You've Mastered Life in the Military

Now it's time for that master's degree or  graduate certificate.

Folks in the military have always given more. Sacrificed. Never quit until the mission is complete. And now, that includes putting your service time toward your master’s or graduate certificate. Join our AMU community dedicated to serving those who serve.

Books and Materials

As a student enrolled in a master’s degree or graduate certificate, you will be responsible for purchasing your own course materials. The materials needed can be viewed within the Academic Plan. Simply click on the course title and select the Course Materials block under the course’s description to see what materials are needed.

Please note that our Freedom Grant provides most course materials at no cost for master’s-level courses to active-duty servicemembers, their spouse/dependents, National Guard members, and Reservists.

Submit the Application for Admission
If you have not done so already, complete the Admissions Application. This link can be found in the header of most pages on the website.
Complete the Acknowledgement of Student Rights and Responsibilities
Hey, you’re military. If anything, you know how to respect rules. But please read over the University’s policies and procedures, accept the University’s agreement to handle disputes through arbitration, and review the Veteran Student Acknowledgment information. 
Verify Your Identity
We believe you are who you say you are. Still, we request a copy of the Joint Services Transcript, on your behalf, in lieu of requiring a photo ID. Air Force applicants are required to submit a valid government-issued photo ID to documents@apus.edu.
Send Official Undergraduate or Higher Transcript
As a student enrolled in a master’s degree, you must provide documentation of your conferred bachelor’s degree or higher from an institution whose accreditation is recognized by CHEA. You will not be eligible to register for courses until you have demonstrated conferral of a bachelor’s degree or higher. You may provide an unofficial transcript of your bachelor’s or graduate degree (with conferral) or a copy of your diploma to your admissions representative so you may be permitted to register for courses. Students will then have 8 weeks from the start of their first course to submit their official transcript and complete their record.

Please have official transcripts mailed to:

APUS - Attn: Student Records
111 West Congress Street
Charles Town, WV 25414

Receive Educational/Benefit Counseling
Your admissions representative will brief you on education benefits, funding and University policies.
Tour the Ecampus
Log into the ecampus, select the down arrow beside your name in the page header,  and click Edit Profile to review and confirm that your personal information is correct. While you’re there, get familiar with the various areas of the ecampus. It may not include a fancy stadium or manicured lawns, but that’s just one way we put valuable resources back into YOU, our students.
Begin the Transfer Credit Process
For students with military service, we initiate a transfer credit application on your behalf. Once all documentation is received the process can take 2-3 weeks to review prior college, military and/or professional credit.
Determine Payment Options
Affordability is one of the main differences between us and the other guys. So after determining the best payment options for your budget, we accept several forms of payment such as Veterans Benefits, Military Tuition Assistance, Federal Student Aid, Self-Payment, and more. Details can be found within your ecampus and are also located on our website.
Register for Classes
Click Register Now within the top banner of the ecampus and follow the prompts until you receive a confirmation number or the course shows as registered in your Academic Plan.

Enter Classroom
With your work ethic, you’re no stranger to the phrase, “the early bird-gets-the-worm.” The classroom opens at 6 a.m., ET. You must log into each classroom at least once the first week and complete the first week’s introductory forum post. This post must contain at least 250 words and be submitted by 11:59 p.m., ET on Sunday. If you do not complete this requirement during week one by the noted specifications, you will be automatically dropped from the course.
