Air Force Tuition Assistance

Air Force: Tuition Assistance

Air Force students may request Tuition Assistance (TA) only if they are on activated orders. TA is a benefit offered to service members to assist with the cost of tuition assistance for military. TA typically covers 100% of tuition, up to the $250 cap per credit hour. Our undergraduate tuition rate is $250 per credit hour and our graduate programs are discounted for military personnel, to bring the tuition down to the $250 credit hour cap.

Note: Liberty University does not determine eligibility for Tuition Assistance. The above noted items were received from the U.S Air Force. Please contact your ESO to determine your full eligibility requirements.
