Amridge University is a Military Friendly University
Amridge University proudly supports our veterans by providing programs and tuition rates to help them complete their education.
Detailed information is provided in our Military Tuition Rate Sheet. To help military students understand their educational costs, Amridge University will send students who apply and register for courses a University Shopping Sheet that details tuition, books, and fees. Contact the Amridge Financial Aid Team for further information.
Amridge University is proud to demonstrate its commitment to our nation’s veterans by participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program. All veterans eligible for the program (as determined by the VA) will receive a Yellow Ribbon Scholarship. That scholarship, together with matching funds from the VA, will cover all tuition and fee expenses at Amridge University that are not covered by your Chapter 33 benefits. That means that the combination of financial support from Amridge University’s Yellow Ribbon Scholarship and the VA will cover the full cost of tuition and fees. For more information about applying for VA benefits, visit the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs.
Amridge University’s participation in the Yellow Ribbon program is determined annually. Should Amridge University cease involvement in the Yellow Ribbon program, eligible veterans will continue to receive other benefits under the Post 9/11 GI Bill.
The Post 9/11 GI Bill is an education benefit program for individuals who served on active duty on or after September 11, 2001. Students may begin using the benefit for study beginning August 1, 2009.
Under Chapter 33, the benefits you receive are determined by some factors, including the length of your qualifying active-duty service, how you take your courses and your “rate of pursuit.” Visit the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs for more information about the program or to determine your eligibility. Please contact us to understand better how your enrollment at Amridge University may impact your level of benefits.
Active-duty military personnel who are eligible for Chapter 33 benefits and have exhausted all tuition assistance in a given year may use their VA benefits to cover the cost of tuition and fees. You must notify the Certifying Official of your home campus for any classes you would like certified for VA education benefits.
Amridge University salutes all that America’s veterans have done to serve our country. Now, we want to assist you in achieving your educational goals. There are some benefit plans available for eligible veterans. An overview of the ones most often used for enrollment at Amridge University is provided below. More detailed information about each program and its eligibility requirements are available at the Department of Veterans’ Affairs website.
If you are using VA Benefits for the first time, you must complete a 22-1990 form and send a copy to Amridge’s Financial Aid Department. For those who have already used benefits with another institution, you will need to complete a 22-1995 form and send a copy to Amridge’s Financial Aid Department.
The Post 9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33): The Post 9/11 GI Bill is for individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate service or individuals discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days on or after September 11, 2001. Veterans, active-duty service members, and their spouses and dependents may be eligible for these benefits. Additional financial assistance is available for eligible veterans through Amridge University’s participation in the Yellow Ribbon program. This benefit is paid directly to the institution.
The Montgomery GI Bill – Active Duty (Chapter 30): The Active Duty Educational Assistance Program is generally for individuals who entered active duty after June 30, 1985, and served continuously for three years, or for individuals serving two years on active duty followed by four years of Selected Reserve. To be eligible, veterans must have contributed $1,200 during their first year of military service. Veterans or service personnel cannot withdraw money paid into the fund.
The Montgomery GI Bill – Selective Service (Chapter 1606): The Selected Reserve Educational Assistance Program is for members of the Reserve elements of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and the Air National Guard. To be eligible, reservists must have a six-year obligation to serve in the Selected Reserve signed after June 30, 1985. No contribution is required. Eligibility for this program is determined by the Department of Defense or Department of Homeland Security, as appropriate.
Today, active duty military, Guard members, Reservists, Veterans, and their families from all over the world are enrolled in our online bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral programs.
Maybe you have heard the old saying: Success is when preparation meets opportunity. As a service member of America’s armed forces, you know that effective educational planning leads to success! A degree from Amridge will prepare you to succeed when the opportunity arises for either a military promotion or a successful transition into civilian life. The discipline and commitment that you have learned in the military will assist you as you are enriched in one of Amridge University’s online degree programs. To honor your commitment to our country, Amridge University offers a Military Tuition Rate rate to active duty personnel and their immediate families, Veterans, National Guard and Reserves personnel, and civilian employees of the Department of Defense.

Hear what our students have to say about Amridge University
Amridge Military Graduate - Toneca Palmer
“The reason that I chose Amridge over other universities was primarily their support to the military community; not only the tuition breaks, which was a huge incentive, but just a staff that understood some of the challenges that come along with military service, whether it was drill weekend or whether it was a military break due to being called up to military service. It made a huge difference to know that the staff understood the military. They understood the challenges and some of the stumbling blocks to an academic career. The values that I have learned at Amridge I want to apply in both my personal and professional life to see success; whether it be running the organization I currently work with or seeking future professional opportunities or whether it’s being a better husband and father or better member of my community. Everything from organizational behavior to vision and values to leadership fundamentals are all things that I put to use on a daily basis, and I credit that to Amridge University.”
