Military Tuition Assistance Scholarship Update

Explore Programs

Many branches of the military discontinued tuition assistance for active-duty service members in early March in response to the sudden, unexpected budget cuts of the sequestration. These actions greatly impacted Southern New Hampshire University’s active-duty military students, and many contacted their academic advisors expressing concern about their ability to continue their education without this funding. SNHU made an immediate decision to scholarship all current active-duty military students for the upcoming term.

Congress passed a bill on March 19 to prevent the termination of the tuition assistance program, and legislation to restore the program cleared the House on March 21. President Obama then signed the bill into law. While military tuition assistance will once again be available for active-duty military students, the specifics of the benefit reinstitution vary by branch of service. Southern New Hampshire University will stand by its commitment to scholarship its activity-duty military students for the graduate term, which began on April 1, 2013 and, if necessary, for the undergraduate term beginning April 29, 2013. Southern New Hampshire University will continue to monitor the situation in keeping with its goal of providing affordable and accessible education to those who serve our country.
