Military Benefits

We have honored veteran and military personnel for their courageous service since 1986. Every branch of active military, reservists, veterans, and military spouses can access exclusive benefits:

  • Military Tuition Discount

    Online military, veteran, and military spouse students are given a discount to reduce their tuition to $250 per credit hour for undergraduate students, and $275 per credit hour for graduate students. This discount applies to associate, bachelor's and all master's level programs, as well as the Doctor of Education and Education Specialist programs. For undergraduate students, this keeps tuition within the Tuition Assistance cap per credit hour requirement.

  • Military Book Voucher

    Undergraduate, military, veteran, and military spouse students are given a book voucher worth $100-$400 based on the number of courses taken per term. This is a free benefit for all undergraduate military students and is not based upon any outside aid.

    Trained professionals are dedicated to assisting military and veteran students with academic and financial needs, the admissions and enrollment process, and military and veteran benefits.
