Getting Admitted to APUS
As an equal opportunity educational system, APUS bases admission to our programs of study solely on the required documentation outlined in this section.
Studying online requires that you use a computer, an internet connection, and desktop productivity software to complete your degree. Some programs and classes may require additional software. You should always check the course description and, once the course opens, the course syllabus, to verify if you will need to purchase any software or be able to access provided software.
It is your responsibility as a student to ensure you have timely access to a computer that meets the technology requirements for courses as well as appropriate internet access to be able to fully participate in courses. It is also your responsibility to ensure you have access to a computer that does not restrict access to sites you will be required to access during your course. If you will be using a computer that is locked out of required sites or functions required for your participation in a course, you should consult the course description and, once your course opens, the course syllabus to verify any access needed. If the computer you will be using is restricted from sites you will need for participation in the class, you should drop the course prior to the end of the first week of the course until you are able to resolve your access issues.
