A passion for academic quality
and affordable access
Many of our students are working adults, pursuing their studies and careers simultaneously, often while raising a family. APEI creates opportunities for these adult learners by providing access to a quality, affordable higher education. Through longstanding relationships with corporate partners, non-profits, and the military and public service communities, we attract a diverse body of college-ready students and take steps to help them succeed.
Since our founding, we have kept tuition affordable through innovative initiatives that improve cost-efficiencies and customer service. Examples include our ePress initiative to combat inflation in the cost of textbooks; our automated transfer credit system, which streamlines the transfer process; Faculty Connect, a proprietary collaboration tool that enhances teaching excellence; and our industry-leading Partnership at a Distance (PAD) information technology system that keeps administrative costs down. The result: Our combined tuition, fees and books at AMU and APU are roughly 20% less for undergraduate and 40% less for graduate students than the average in-state cost at a public university.5 We’re opening doors by providing access to quality degree programs and helping our students move forward.
