American Military University Freedom Grant

Undergraduate and Master’s Education for Potentially Zero Out-of-Pocket Tuition*

AMU's Freedom Grant covers tuition above the military TA cap of $250 per credit hour for all undergraduate and master's-level programs. The grant is available to all U.S. active-duty servicemembers, National Guard members, and Reservists.

Military spouses/dependents also receive a tuition grant. After the grant is applied, undergraduate and master's-level tuition is $250/credit hour.

To minimize out-of-pocket costs, the University also:

  • provides no-cost textbooks and ebooks for all undergraduate, doctoral, and Freedom Grant-eligible master’s-level students
  • waives the technology fee for U.S. active-duty servicemembers, National Guard members, and Reservists

Join fellow servicemembers and start the next chapter of your life reducing the burden of college debt by advancing your education at AMU.

*Zero-out-of-pocket tuition may be possible when the Freedom Grant is combined with other forms of financial assistance, such as military TA or federal Pell grants.
