We’ve Got Your Six!

From application to graduation, we’re here to help. If you’re pursuing a bachelor’s degree, see if you qualify for UA Online’s Military Tuition Grant.

We appreciate the service of our active-duty military, National Guard and Reserve student service members. We believe there should be no limits to your education, no matter where your service takes you. The UA Online Military Tuition Grant was created  to cover tuition costs not paid by military tuition assistance, up to the maximum amount allowed by your service branch. This grant can help cover up to 6 credit hours each term (fall, spring and summer) and up to 18 credit hours per academic year, minimizing the out-of-pocket expenses incurred by service members.

Service members interested in applying must complete a grant application and submit military  verification documents for consideration each year. The grant does not cover the cost of any additional course fees, including textbooks or proctored testing.
