About Academic Programs

The American Public University System offers several options for undergraduate study: associate degrees, bachelor’s degrees, undergraduate certificates, minors, and learning tracks. All degree programs include a general education component.  Associate degree programs require a minimum of 60 semester hours which must be completed within seven (7) years of the students’ first enrollment date. Bachelor’s degree programs require a minimum of 120 semester hours. Students are allowed ten (10) years from the date of first enrollment to complete a bachelor’s degree. Bachelors’ programs include general education, major and elective requirements; many offer an opportunity to focus on a specific area of concentration.
