Madison, WI (November 20, 2015)

TASC is pleased to announce an educational alliance with American Public University (APU) that will benefit clients using our BeneScholar™ Education Assistance platform.

Under the terms of the agreement, BeneScholar™ clients’ employees are eligible to receive a 5% tuition grant,  bringing tuition costs down to $256 per credit for undergraduate and $332.50 per graduate credit. Also, through a book grant, textbooks and/or e-books are provided at no charge to students earning undergraduate academic credit.

”TASC is very happy to be working with American Public University to provide our BeneScholar™ clients with a better educated workforce," says Duane Chapman, TASC’s Executive Vice President of National Accounts

In 1991, American Military University (AMU), now part of American Public University System (APUS), broke new ground by offering career-relevant education for a mobile population of military learners. In 2002, APU was established as part of APUS to provide a broader audience of motivated working adults with access to the same quality, affordable, and flexible programs offered at AMU.

“Our core mission is to offer adult learners affordable, career-relevant education to enhance their professional skills and help advance their career goals,” said Mike Harbert, vice president, strategic markets and relationships, for APUS. “We’re proud to assist TASC in making this invaluable benefit available to their clients seeking to attract, cultivate and retain their current and future leaders.” 

Today, APUS is one of the leading providers of online higher education, offering more than 190 academic programs – from certificates to graduate degrees – to approximately 100,000 students, with 50,000 alumni worldwide. It is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), and has specialized accreditation through the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) and the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
