Tuition Reductions for Servicemembers,
Veterans, and Military Spouses

At Purdue Global, we believe you have earned a quality education through your service to our country and should not have to pay excessive out-of-pocket expenses. To help you achieve your educational goals, we have significantly reduced many of our tuition rates and fees.

Tuition Reductions

Current Servicemembers

  • 55% per-credit tuition reduction for undergraduate programs
  • 17% to 30% per-credit tuition reduction for graduate programs

Veterans

  • 38% per-credit tuition reduction for undergraduate programs
  • 14% per-credit tuition reduction for graduate programs

Spouses of Servicemembers

  • 10% per-credit tuition reduction for undergraduate and graduate programs

Military tuition rates cannot be used in conjunction with any other Purdue Global grants or tuition reduction, including Purdue Global Tuition Cap or ExcelTrack™ pricing. Undergraduate per-credit tuition reductions are based on standard tuition rate of $371.00; graduate per-credit tuition reductions are based on standard graduate tuition rates. Indiana resident pricing for undergraduate veterans and spouses is $220.00 per credit; no additional reductions are applied due to this lowered tuition rate. Military spouses enrolled in Purdue Global Tuition Cap or ExcelTrack™ programs are not eligible for this reduction.

Yellow Ribbon Program

Purdue Global also participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program, which assists eligible students covered by the Post-9/11 GI Bill® who attend schools with tuition over the annual benefit cap. In the majority of cases, Purdue Global tuition is within the cap, and the Yellow Ribbon Program is not needed. However, we do participate in the program should the additional funding be necessary.
