Amendment Description This Amendment No. 1 on Form 10-K/A (the “Amendment”) amends the Annual Report on Form 10-K (the “2020 Form 10-K”) of Aspen Group, Inc. (the “Company”) for the year ended April 30, 2020 (the “2020 Fiscal Year”), as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on July 7, 2020. We are filing this Amendment to amend Part III of the 2020 Form 10-K to include the information required by and not included in Part III of the 2020 Form 10-K because we do not intend to file our definitive proxy statement within 120 days of the end of the 2020 Fiscal Year. Part II. Item 9B also contains information required by Items 5.02(b), 5.02(d) and 5.02(e), as permitted by the rules of the SEC. In addition, the Exhibit Index in Item 15 of Part IV of the 2020 Form 10-K is hereby amended and restated in its entirety and currently dated certifications required under Section 302 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 are filed as exhibits to this Amendment. Because no financial statements are contained within this Amendment, we are not filing currently dated certifications pursuant to Section 906 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.Except as described above, no other changes have been made to the 2020 Form 10-K. The 2020 Form 10-K continues to speak as of the date of the 2020 Form 10-K, and we have not updated the disclosures contained therein to reflect any events which occurred at a date subsequent to the filing of the 2020 Form 10-K other than as expressly indicated in this Amendment.
