Accreditation Matters
American Military University is part of the American Public University System, which is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), the same as Ohio State University and the U.S. Air Force academy, to name a couple. HLC is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.

Additionally, we offer programs that have obtained specialized accreditation from external accrediting organizations. This adds a level of rigor to the curriculum and demonstrates to employers that graduates of these programs have achieved the required knowledge and skills to perform in their professions.
