Military Tuition Aid
We’re Proud to Educate Our Nation’s Finest
Florida Tech salutes the many military servicemembers from all branches who serve our country while continuing their education. U.S. military and their spouses are welcome to attend Florida Tech’s online classrooms from wherever they’re based and enjoy special military tuition pricing, sometimes resulting in no tuition cost at all.
Special Military Pricing - Undergraduate
Florida Tech University Online is proud to offer a special rate of $250 per credit hour available for Active Duty, Selected Reserves, National Guard servicemembers and their spouses. Veterans and their spouses as well as dependents of deceased or disabled veterans are eligible for a 10% discount on undergraduate tuition rates.
Be sure to check with your ESO to verify your TA policies haven’t changed recently, but when combined with the majority of the current military tuition assistance programs, your out-of-pocket undergraduate tuition could be $0!
To qualify, simply provide a copy of your valid military ID. To request more information click here.

This program allows United States institutions of higher learning to voluntarily fund tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate. The institution can contribute up to 50% of those expenses, and VA will match the amount. To apply, please contact the VA Coordinator at 321-674-8204 or email at email@example.com.
College Fund Programs
Enlistees in the Armed Services who become eligible for their College Fund Programs receive up to $70,000 toward college tuition, when combined with the Montgomery G.I. Bill, and upon honorable discharge. Enlistees who are awarded the College Fund by the Marine Corps or Coast Guard receive even more.
Loan Repayment Programs
In the full-time duty Army, soldiers can qualify to have their loan repaid by the military at the rate of one-third of the loan for each year of full-time duty served (maximum loan repayment is $70,000). The Army also helps soldiers pay off student loans they've taken out, provided they attended schools on an approved Perkins, Stafford or other Department of Education Guaranteed Student Loan.
In the full-time duty Navy, a $65,000 loan repayment program is also available. Qualifications include prior military service, a high school diploma and a loan guaranteed under the Higher Education Act of 1965. You must qualify for Navy Nuclear Field or other designated critical rating as defined by the U.S. Navy, and other restrictions apply.
