AIU Atlanta: A Military-Centric Campus
American InterContinental University (AIU) is committed to helping those who have served in the United States Armed Forces. It’s why we offer tuition reduction for active duty military students as well as a number of grants and scholarships for current and former members of the military. We also provide the opportunity for you to receive college credits for qualifying military experience by evaluating your transcript, prior education and MOS Codes held. Our MOS Pledge gives students the opportunity to get maximum transfer credits for qualifying military training and experience related to an MOS Code*.
Our military students are one of AIU’s strengths, and one of the ways we show that is through the AIU Atlanta Veterans Center. This serves as a dedicated space for active duty military and veteran students to connect, find mentorship, participate in special military events, and help you navigate your educational journey and transition into civilian life.
