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 documents@apus.edu or an official CCAF transcript.

This starts the process of evaluating your prior college, military and/or professional credits. A Transfer Credit Application is required for all undergraduate degree-seeking students who have attended other accredited institutions. Once all documentation is received the process can take 2-3 weeks, so start it early!
