We understand how your work and family commitments don’t always align with a traditional semester schedule. That’s why, at AMU, you may enroll at any time and our online courses start monthly and run for 8 or 16 weeks.

This grant applies to all U.S. active-duty service members and their spouses/dependents, Guard, Reserve, and veterans.
