APU’s total costs of combined tuition, books, and required fees are approximately 17% less for undergraduate and 37% less for graduate students than the average published in-state total costs at U.S. public 4-year institutions.* Undergraduate courses are priced at $270 USD per credit with an additional $50 USD per course technology fee, so a three-credit undergraduate course costs $860 USD. Graduate courses are priced at $350 USD per credit with an additional $50 USD technology fee, so a three-credit graduate course costs $1,100 USD. Prices are subject to change in the future.
