Tuition Assistance for Active Duty

Our TA scholarship reduces tuition by nearly 50% for undergraduate courses ..... and more for graduate courses!

Stratford University processes Tuition Assistance (TA) for the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. The Military Student Office helps all active military navigate the educational system to secure this benefit.

TA Scholarship Program

Active military personnel, using tuition assistance, can receive a scholarship to offset nearly 50% of the tuition. This program is designed to reduce the out-of-pocket expense for active duty military.

This scholarship will reduce the cost of a 4.5 credit course to only $840.00. This tuition is substantially lower than regular tuition for a graduate course of $1,845 and an undergraduate course of $1,665. This information is summarized on the table below.

TA Scholarship Tuition Reduction

Course Level Credits Full Tuition Tuition with TA Scholarship
Undergraduate 4.5 $1,665* $840*
Graduate 4.5 $1,845* $840*
*Tuition includes required textbook

*Since the scholarship only applies to tuition, you will still have some out-of-pocket expense for laboratory or culinary classes which carry additional fees. You can use the Veterans Administration Tuition Assistance Top-up program to pay for any educational expenses not covered by tuition assistance. Please note that this tuition assistance scholarship does not apply to the nursing program.
