American Military University (AMU) has service members and veterans studying with us around the world, supported by a vast array of staff and faculty who are also veterans. As a result, AMU truly understands the specific needs of our country’s veterans. To support you, we have dedicated advisors skilled at addressing the questions veterans face when enrolling in school, such as how to utilize benefits for financial aid. And, if you are a veteran with a disability, you are not alone. AMU has staff trained at empowering our disabled veteran students to succeed.

As a top veteran-focused online university, our goal is to make your decision to advance your education simple and straightforward by identifying the necessary steps and services available to you along the way. AMU will help you navigate through questions such as: how to enroll, where to find support, and an explanation of veteran's benefits. At any time you can simply request additional information or to speak with a member of our admissions team.
