Western Kentucky University offers a military tuition rate of $250 per credit hour for undergraduate and graduate courses to all service members currently on Active Duty, serving in a Reserve unit (excluding those on Individual Ready Reserve) or in a component of the National Guard.  This tuition rate is applied when you utilize Department of Defense Tuition Assistance (DOD TA) through your service branch or when you utilize state-funded tuition assistance through your guard unit.

  1. You, the service member, are responsible for the costs

  2. Must be admitted to WKU unless you are a GoArmyEd participant

  3. All Active Duty, Reservists (excluding Individual Ready Reserve) and National Guard members are eligible
