Military Tuition

Reduced tuition for those who serve

We’re proud to be a military friendly university that helps those in service improve their lives through education. To show our support and gratitude, we offer reduced tuition rates to active duty service members and their spouses, as well as reserves and National Guard members. The following sections detail the preferred tuition rates for active duty military students as well as the preferred rates for spouses, veterans, reserves and National Guard.


Preferred Tuition Rates for Active Duty Military Students

Active duty, reserves and National Guard students can use their military education benefits at NCU. The following reduced tuition rates are exclusively available to active duty students.

Eligibility for these rates is subject to submission of the required documentation. You will be required to provide a copy of your most current Leave and Earnings Statement (LES) to verify your active duty status. This must be updated annually. Follow these steps to obtain your LES.
