A University That's Got Your Six

Seize the Opportunity

At American Military University (AMU), we take great pride in being an Army-friendly college. Our classes are 100% online with no set login times and start every month, so you can begin on your schedule. We 're also committed to saving you time and money by awarding transfer credit for your prior college coursework and Army experience.
 

Steps to Get Started

The professors know what we go through when we’re deployed. They understand. That really was important to me because it makes it a lot easier to be able to take your classes.
