American Public University System (APUS) is a private for-profit, online education institution consisting of the American Military University (AMU), american public university (APU) and Hondros College of Nursing. APUS is wholly owned by The American Public Education Corporation, a privately owned public shareholding company (NASDAQ: APEI). APUS maintains corporate and academic offices in Charlestown, West Virginia, and administrative offices in Manassas, Virginia. APUS offers fellows, bachelor's, master's, and doctorates, as well as double degrees, degree programs and learning pathways. Despite its name, APUS is not a public institution and is not part of the U.S. government or the U.S. military. In 2018, the school paid $270,000 to Massachusetts after an investigation by the state attorney general into allegations that it misled potential students. Approximately 56% of APUS students reported that they served in the army in active service in initial enrollment. About 55,000 military service personnel receive study assistance (TA) for APUS schools. Another 16,702 use their benefits from the General School Education Bill.
