Military? Online Programs Might be Perfect for You

by South University
September 26, 2011

Are you an active duty member of military, a veteran, or the spouse of an active duty member of the military? Then pursuing your education at South University - Online Programs can be particularly well-suited for people like you - military personnel who want to earn a degree while on active duty or on reserve.

Obtaining a degree online can fit into your busy work and life schedule. You can attend class when it fits your schedule from anywhere you can connect to the internet. And, if you are deployed to different locations, you can stay in the same degree program.

Perhaps the best part about pursuing your associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s or even doctorate online while on active duty is that when you do leave the military, you will be ahead of the game and ready to pursue the next phase of your life and career.

The Same Types of Benefits as Ground Schools
Going to school online doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the potential for the same opportunity to receive the benefits military students do at “traditional” brick and mortar campuses. To recognize your service and commitment, South University has structured the tuition schedule for military affiliated personnel and spouses of active duty service members to eliminate or minimize their out-of-pocket costs.

Tuition Benefits
Thanks to our Active Duty Military Tuition Scholarship, the cost per credit hour for Active Duty, Drilling and Active members of the National Guard and Reserve enrolled in undergraduate programs is equal to the tuition assistance benefit provided by the military to you. For graduate level programs, South University offers a military tuition scholarship of 10%.

Undergraduate Programs $166.00 per credit hour
Master of Science in Nursing $335.70 per credit hour
Master of Science in Criminal Justice $428.40 per credit hour
All Other Master Programs $452.70 per credit hour

The application fee is waived for Active Duty, Reserve, National Guard and Veteran personnel as well as for spouses of Active Duty military personnel. Financial aid is available for those who qualify.

University Credit for Military Experience and Training
Your military service and/or previous education may qualify you for university credits. Students who wish to have their military experience and training evaluated for university credit should submit copies of DD Form 295 to the registrar's office.
