Tuition Assistance.

The Office of Military and Veteran Services is experienced in assisting students with military tuition assistance (TA) from all service branches and UNO is approved for TA with all branches. Students must submit their TA request via the process for their branch (see below) for each course and semester they are taking at UNO. Students are welcome to contact the Office of Military and Veteran Services if they have any questions about course name/number, tuition and fee rates, or TA processing.

The current federal tuition assistance cap is $250/credit hour. UNO is a great choice for military because all undergraduate tuition rates ($189.75-$232.00/credit hour) are within that TA cap. The graduate tuition rates for courses on campus ($236.50/credit hour) are also within that TA cap, while graduate courses online are competitive with other schools ($271.00-$596.00/credit hour). Tuition assistance can only be used to cover courses required as part of a degree program.
