A University That Understands Military Spouses

As a military spouse, your pride and honor run deep. You serve right alongside your active-duty servicemember with every PCS, deployment, and TDY. American Military University (AMU) celebrates your commitment, and we know you have ambitions too. AMU has educated those who serve since 1991 with portable and accessible learning. We stand ready to serve you with affordable, flexible online higher education.

We believe military spouses and dependents deserve the opportunity to learn without the burden of debt too. That’s why AMU created a military tuition grant for U.S. active-duty military spouses and dependents. The grant caps undergraduate and master’s-level tuition at $250/credit hour. Fulfill your goals by enrolling at a university that supports your grit and dedication.

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