Course Materials Allowance

If you qualify for Title IV Federal Student Aid (FSA), you may also be eligible to receive a course materials allowance (voucher or check) within the first week of the semester in order to help you obtain the required course materials as soon as possible. Read our Course Materials Allowance Policy for complete details.

For Master's and Graduate Certificate Students

To minimize out-of-pocket costs, active-duty servicemembers, their spouse/dependents, National Guard members, and Reservists receive a master's-level book grant. This provides no-cost textbooks and ebooks for master’s-level courses to active-duty servicemembers, their spouse/dependents, National Guard members, and Reservists. Although master’s and graduate certificate students not eligible for this grant are responsible for acquiring their own course materials, APUS strives to minimize such costs. Items may be purchased from the vendor of the student’s choice. Further information regarding course materials can be found at

Course Material Confirmations

Master’s and graduate certificate students should contact to ensure they are purchasing the correct course materials. Materials may not be finalized until 30 days before the course start date. If students purchase incorrect course materials without contacting, they will not be reimbursed by APUS.
