Tuition Grant for Military Spouses
As a military and veteran friendly school we understand your unique challenges and have a tuition grant to limit your out-of-pocket costs. It caps our undergraduate tuition at $250/credit hour (the military Tuition Assistance cap) and master's and graduate certificate tutiion at $325/credit hour for U.S. active-duty servicemembers, Guard, Reserve, military spouses and dependents, and veterans.

Military Spouse Career Advancement Account (MYCAA) Program
As a top provider of education to the U.S. Military, AMU supplements the $4,000 scholarship awarded to eligible military spouses through the MyCAA scholarship program with an additional $500. This scholarship, coupled with the tuition grant, helps military spouses pursue certificates and degrees with little to no out-of-pocket expenses.

MYCAA Eligibility
The MyCAA program is available to spouses of servicemembers on active duty in pay grades E-1 to E-5, W-1 to W-2, and O-1 to O-2. This includes spouses married to members of the National Guard and Reserve Components on Title X orders in these same pay grades.

If you are not eligible for the MyCAA program, there are other financial aid resources available that may help you join the many military spouses currently studying at AMU. Complete our brief form to request additional information on these programs.
