We support our military in the following ways:

Military and Advance Training

  • Reduced tuition rates and fee waivers for military students
  • Participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program
  • Military-friendly change of orders withdrawal policy
  • Acceptance of military credits earned through DANTES/CLEP exams
  • Advisors specially trained to assist with military and VA benefits

Study While You Serve

We offer over 180 programs of study, most of which are 100% online. Undergraduate terms last 10 weeks and are structured so students take fewer subjects at a time, allowing for greater focus. Graduate terms last 6 to 10 weeks depending on the program.

New Classes Start Every Few Weeks

Purdue Global offers flexible deployment and leave of absence policies to accommodate the mobile lifestyle of servicemembers.
