A commitment to academic quality, affordability, innovation—and service.
APEI has a unique vision that is rooted in our history. Originally established in 1991 as American Military University (AMU) to serve the needs of a highly mobile military, we are guided by a strong sense of social responsibility, and a commitment to serving our students and the broader community. Today, through APUS and Hondros College of Nursing, we serve more than 100,000 adult learners worldwide and offer more than 100 degree programs. Our mandate has broadened, but our mission remains the same—to prepare our students for leadership and service in a diverse and changing world, and to help them reach their full potential by providing quality, affordable, innovative education programs.
