Undergraduate and Master’s Education for Potentially Zero Out-of-Pocket Tuition*
AMU has created the Freedom Grant for all U.S. active-duty servicemembers, National Guard members, and Reservists, providing tuition that caps at the military TA rate:
- $250 per credit hour for all undergraduate, master's degree, and graduate certificate programs
Military spouses/dependents also receive a tuition grant that caps undergraduate, master's degree, and graduate certificate tuition at $250/credit hour.
To minimize out-of-pocket costs, the University also provides no-cost textbooks and ebooks for all undergraduate, doctoral, and military-tuition-grant-eligible master’s-level students.
AMU also offers a technology fee waiver 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. The Freedom Grant is available to all U.S. active-duty servicemembers, National Guard members, and Reservists.
