What Does It Cost?

Higher education comes with a cost, but it is one of the most worthwhile investments you can make in life, and APU offers many options to help make college more affordable. As you review APU’s tuition and fees, keep in mind that most students do not pay the full price each year. In fact, 100% of new students who began in spring 2020 received some form of financial aid, such as scholarships, grants, and loans.
