Tuition Assistance (TA) is a benefit offered to service members to assist with the cost of tuition. Military Tuition Assistance typically covers 100 percent of tuition, up to the $250 cap per credit hour. Our undergraduate tuition rate is discounted to $250 per credit hour, and our graduate programs are discounted for military personnel. Tuition Assistance only applies to tuition; students still need to pay semester fees.
Please see the Military Tuition Discounts & Scholarships page for information about military tuition discounts and instructions on how to apply for a discount.
