The Department of Defense has various Tuition Assistance programs. For active duty military members, military Tuition Assistance may cover up to 100% of tuition costs for all courses offered by nationally or regionally accredited institutions. It is important to understand that each branch of the service manages Tuition Assistance differently, and each branch has specific eligibility requirements. The military service members must refer to their specific branches of service for current information regarding military Tuition Assistance policies and procedures.
Post University has a dedicated team of specialists who work exclusively with military students. They are not able to advise students on which benefits to use, that decision must be discussed between the veteran students, the eligible family member students, and the Veterans Administration. For more information on determining which benefit to use, please visit www.va.gov.
