School should accommodate to your lifestyle, not hinder it. Learn more about our military tuition options.

Military Discounts

All military men and women receive a waived application fee. Spouses or children of active-duty military will receive the application fee waiver and a 10% tuition discount.

Education Benefits

CSU is approved to offer Military Tuition Assistance (TA) and assist with Veterans Affairs benefits. Additional education funding is available to those approved for TA and eligible for Montgomery GI Bill® Active Duty (MGIB-AD) benefits. In most cases, these benefits cover the entire cost of your program.

GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government website.

Active-Duty Military Discount

CSU’s tuition rate for associate, bachelor’s and master’s courses is $250 per credit hour for all active-duty military members using tuition assistance except those who are using a Learning Partner discount. The lower rate is offered to keep the tuition rate at the DoD cap of $250. Most courses are 3 credit hours. Tuition and fees are payable in U.S. funds. Tuition rates are subject to change.

Military Scholarships

Hero Behind the Hero Scholarship

CSU recognizes the sacrifices made by the family members of America’s military men and women, and public safety personnel (firefighters, law enforcement officers, EMTs & dispatchers), therefore, we are proud to introduce the Hero Behind the Hero Scholarship Program.

Forever a Hero Scholarship

Columbia Southern University salutes active-duty and military veterans and their contributions to our communities. CSU will award one Forever a Hero Scholarship annually to a military veteran.
