Paying for School

Whether you’re planning to attend college for the first time or returning to complete your degree, there are many decisions to make along the way. And one of the most important decisions you’ll make is how to finance your education. From self-pay to tuition assistance to federal aid, we can help you evaluate these options and choose what works best for you. If you have any questions, please email us at finaid@apus.edu or call 877-755-2787.

Get Started Soon
If you plan to use some form of financial aid to pay for school (as opposed to paying out of pocket), you’ll want to start the process at least 6 weeks prior to your course start date. During this time, check your email frequently and please respond promptly to requests from our financial aid team asking for documentation such as tax information or transcripts.

We Are Here to Help

We understand that circumstances may occur which can affect your ability to pay for school (i.e., loss of employment, family death, or unusual medical expenses). Your education needs are important to us, so please contact our student support center for assistance if necessary.

Be a Smart Consumer

We have compiled key consumer information from across our university to help you make informed decisions regarding your education.
