We Put the "U" in University

AMU fits your schedule and budget, not the other way around.

Many colleges treat you like a line item, and make you fit into their schedules and budgets. Not AMU. We recognize and respect your unique needs, schedules, financial situations—you name it. And make it all work best for you, not the other way around. Check out our admissions checklist below.

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 Orientation
Read over the University’s policies and procedures as well as accept the University’s agreement to handle disputes through arbitration.
Verify Your Identity
Students are required to upload a valid government-issued photo ID in our secure document portal. For military and veterans, 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 [email protected] or an official CCAF transcript.
Send Official Undergraduate or Higher Transcript
As an enrolled student, 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 coach 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: Document Services
303 W. 3rd Ave.
Ranson, WV 25438

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.
