Military Tuition Discount

Online, military students and spouses

All qualified online military students and military spouses (as defined by Liberty University) are given a discount on the cost of tuition. For undergraduate programs (Certificate, Associates, and Bachelors), the tuition rate is $250 per credit hour, which is the Tuition Assistance cap for Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marines. The tuition rate for graduate online military students and military spouses is $275 per credit hour. This tuition rate applies to all graduate programs (Certificate and Masters), as well as the Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) and Educational Specialist (Ed.S.).

Please note: Other than the Ed.D and Ed.S. programs mentioned, the tuition discount is not applied to any other Post-Graduate or Doctoral degrees [ex: Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.), Doctor of Philosophy Counseling (Ph.D.), Doctor of Philosophy in Theology & Apologetics (Ph.D), Doctor of Business Administration (D.B.A.), etc.].

Once approved for this benefit, the discount is automatically applied to the tuition within 3-5 business days of enrollment in course(s). You may verify your charges have updated accordingly by viewing your Summary of Account through ASIST and when you complete Financial Check-In for the semester.
