Tuition Assistance

Federal Tuition Assistance (TA) is a benefit offered to service members to assist with the cost of tuition assistance for military. TA typically covers 100 percent of tuition, up to the $250 cap per credit hour. Our undergraduate tuition rate is $250 per credit hour and our graduate programs are discounted for military personnel, to bring the tuition down to the $250 credit hour cap. 

For additional information on amounts covered by TA and who is eligible according to branch of service, please visit the Military - Tuition Assistance Program website.
