We believe that our military servicemembers should have affordable access to quality post-secondary education.
AIU offers a 45% tuition reduction to active military undergraduate students, including members of the Reserves and National Guard and a 20% tuition reduction to active military graduate students, including members of the Reserves and National Guard.1
In addition to the financial aid available for those who qualify, we’ve established four grants specifically for active-duty military members, veterans and their families.
