Supporting Airmen Who Aim High

Challenge the status quo and let your future soar to new heights with American Military University (AMU). We proudly serve Airmen seeking affordable, flexible, quality higher education.

Founded by a retired Marine Corps officer, AMU has educated those who serve since 1991. We believe all Airmen deserve the opportunity to learn without the burden of debt. That’s why AMU created the Freedom Grant®. This grant gives all U.S. active-duty servicemembers, National Guard members, and Reservists the freedom to pursue undergraduate and master’s-level education for potentially ZERO out-of-pocket tuition. Move with a purpose at AMU, where you may be able to turn your Air Force service into academic credit.

AMU is part of American Public University System (APUS), accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.

Tailored Academic Options for Airmen


AMU is one of a select few academic institutions participating in the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) GEM program. Through AMU, you can complete CCAF's 15 credits of general education requirements. Unsure which program to choose? Apply without declaring a program as an “Undergraduate Courses for Transfer Student.” Select this on the application to get started.


AMU is a participating institution with the Air University Associate to Baccalaureate Cooperative (AU-ABC). Through our 100% online programs, you can complete your coursework whether you are at home or down range.
