Military Tuition Assistance

As part of Liberty University’s commitment to providing excellent service to military students, we have a team of professionals available to assist you with your Tuition Assistance funding. Tuition Assistance (TA) is a government benefit offered to current service members of all branches of the Armed Forces to assist with the cost of tuition. Some Department of Defense employees and military spouses may also be eligible to receive a form of Tuition Assistance.
