American Public University: Online College Courses for Busy Dads

My wife and I have each had our own college adventures. We've faced challenges along the way, such as raising a family and work, but it's all paid off in the end.

I took a couple of online college courses while in the Marine Corps. Having that option was so helpful and convenient. I was able to work and go to school at the same time. Having a job, being a dad and attending college can really become quite complicated. I was lucky that I had online courses available to me.

After serving in the military, I received my diploma from a California State University and pursued my dream in the business world. I now work for a Fortune 500 company and couldn't have done it without my college education.

American Public University (APU) offers Dads a reason to get excited again about our education. Through their diverse, entirely online curriculum, Dads can participate in more than 100 degree programs tailored to their own schedules, whether that means after the kids' bedtime or even during a dance class. By providing class starts on a monthly rather than semester basis, APU offers greater flexibility than most universities. Plus, APU makes it easier to achieve your educational goals with some of the lowest tuition rates in the country: undergraduate classes cost just $750 per 3-credit course.

In addition to undergraduate degree offerings, APU also offers a wide variety of graduate programs for those looking to advance their careers. Over a lifetime, the typical bachelor's degree recipient can expect to earn $800,000 more than a high school graduate, while a graduate who earns a higher degree can expect to make over $1,000,000 more. Additionally, a 2008 National Survey of Student Engagement survey found that 97% of seniors enrolled at APU had an extremely favorable view of the university and would choose APU again.


If you would like to speak with other parents about their experience going back to school at APU, a chat is scheduled for Tuesday, August 17 at 8PM EST.
