Military tuition rates

If you plan to use your military or veterans benefits for your education, you are entitled to receive a Shopping Sheet as provided under Executive Order 13607 signed by President Barack Obama in April 2012. It provides a breakdown of your education costs so you can compare them among the institutions you select. It also shows how your benefits and any financial aid are applied to your education. The information provided in the Shopping Sheet is an estimate of your individual education cost and any financial aid for which you might be eligible. This estimate is based on the information you provided in the Financial Plan with Net Price Calculator. Please refer to your financial aid award letter for the actual amount of financial aid awarded.

Our tuition and expenses estimating tool, Financial Plan with Net Price Calculator, will help you create your Financial Plan and Shopping Sheet.
