Navy Tuition Assistance

Tuition Assistance (TA) is a benefit offered to service members to assist with the cost of tuition. TA typically covers 100% of tuition, up to the $250 per credit hour and $4,000 per military fiscal year caps. Combined with Liberty University’s military tuition discount for undergraduate students ($250 per credit hour) and graduate students ($275 per credit hour), Tuition Assistance may cover up to 100% of tuition for students who qualify.

Benefit Summary

  • Must be on Active Duty or "Activated Reserve" status to be eligible.
  • TA will be approved only after one year at first duty station (approximately 18 months of service).
