SNHU offers discounts up to 30 percent for U.S. service members, both full and part time, and the spouses of those on active duty working toward an online degree. In addition, we also accept Tuition Assistance (TA), Post-9/11 GI Bill® and Montgomery GI Bill benefits, as well as military spouse scholarships through MyCAA programs. For those interested in a full-time, on-campus experience, SNHU is proud to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program.

Your best source for additional information about your military benefits is your branch's Education Office or the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website. However, for your convenience, below is a high level summary of common benefits available for military personnel.
Veterans and servicemembers who have served on active duty for 90 days or more since September 10, 2001 are eligible for the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill®.
If you're currently serving in the U.S. Armed Forces, your Education Office is an excellent resource to learn more about benefits due to you.

A part of the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill®, the Yellow Ribbon Program covers education-related costs for non-resident, out-of-state students attending participating higher educational institutions. SNHU is a participant in the Yellow Ribbon Program for military personnel attending as traditional, on campus students.
The Montgomery G.I. Bill® is a military benefit for eligible active duty servicemembers and veterans (MGIB-AD/Chapter 30) and eligible selected reservists (MGIB-SR) administered through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
Veterans and Active Duty servicemembers who have applied to and have been determined eligible through the Veterans Benefits Administration may receive Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E) service benefits.
Active Duty personnel in the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, or Navy may be eligible for Tuition Assistance (TA).
Because each branch has its own application process and criteria for eligibility, please contact your duty station's Education Office to learn more about your available benefits.
Return of Military Tuition Assistance
Military Tuition Assistance (TA) is awarded to a student under the assumption that the student will attend for the entire period for which the assistance is awarded. When a student withdraws or stops attending, the student may no longer be eligible for the full amount of TA funds originally awarded.
SNHU will return any unearned TA funds on a proportional basis through the 60% portion of the period for which the funds were provided to comply with Department of Defense policy. TA funds are earned proportionally, during an enrollment period, with unearned funds returned based upon when a student stops attending. Any SNHU balance due to a TA return is the responsibility of the student.
If a service member stops attending due to a military service obligation, SNHU will remove the student from the coursework and reverse the charges and return the full TA amount so no debt is incurred by the student.
Depending on your spouse's benefits and eligibility or your circumstances, military spouses and dependents may be entitled to transferable benefits or to the VA's Survivors' and Dependents' Educational Assistance Program (DEA/Chapter 35). Contact your Admissions Representative or Academic Advisor for additional information.
Regardless of your eligibility for benefits through the VA, as the spouse of an Active Duty Servicemember, you're entitled to SNHU's Military Spouse Discount of up to 25%. We recognize the challenges of being married to the military and want to help you see yourself succeed.
You may also want to consider applying for the MyCAA Scholarship, which provides up to $4,000 of tuition assistance to eligible military spouses. Learn more about how to apply and the eligibility requirements.
