Enrolled military undergraduates are now eligible to attend the University of Arizona at a significantly reduced price.

In a press release, the university announced that beginning this fall, the total cost for active-duty military undergraduate students utilizing tuition assistance, including students in the National Guard and the Reserves, will be $250 per credit hour to attend the UA. The U.S. Department of Defense covers tuition costs for active-duty undergraduate students up to $250 per credit hour, covering the cost of UA tuition.

Military personnel utilizing this assistance may do so for undergraduate programs at main campus, Arizona Online or any UA satellite campus.

“Our servicewomen and men are a vital part of both the UA student body and the country’s workforce, and we as a university are committed to their graduation and lifelong success,” said Jeff Goldberg, acting provost for the UA.

The UA is home to nearly 100 eligible active-duty students who qualify for tuition assistance, and the university has started the notification process. The Office of the Registrar will issue tuition-assistance approvals to eligible students via their respective military education officers and portals such as Go Army and Air Force Virtual Education Center.
