The investigation concerns whether American Public Education and certain of its officers and/or directors violated federal securities laws.

AMU is operated by the Company's wholly owned operating subsidiary, American Public University System, Inc. The Civil Investigative Demand requires the production of documents and information relating to recruitment, enrollment, job placement and other matters. When this news was announced, shares of American Public Education declined in value.

If you have any questions concerning this notice or your rights, please contact Joon M. Khang, a prominent litigator for almost two decades, by telephone: (949) 419-3834, or by e-mail at joon@khanglaw.com.
