Helping Soldiers Find Their Most Powerful Weapon: Knowledge

Challenge the status quo and seize your next mission. American Military University (AMU) stands ready to serve you with the education you need: an affordable, respected degree that fits your demanding schedule as a Soldier.

Founded by a retired Marine Corps officer, AMU has educated those who serve since 1991. We believe all Soldiers 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 potentially ZERO out-of-pocket tuition. Move with a purpose at AMU, where you may be able to turn your Army service into academic credit.

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