Military Tuition and Fees

Excelsior College offers special tuition discounts and fee waivers to military servicemembers (active-duty, guard and reserves) and their families to make education as affordable as possible for military students. We also have military-friendly policies and advising services that make it easy to apply military tuition assistance and other educational benefits toward your Excelsior degree.

The information on this page applies only to military servicemembers (active-duty, guard and reserves), plus their spouses and family members. If you are a military veteran, visit the Veteran Tuition and Fees page to learn about Excelsior's special pricing and financial aid programs.

We offer two enrollment options:

  • The Excelsior Course Option—designed for students who need at least 6 credits to graduate.
  • The Multi-Source Option—designed for students who need to take fewer than 12 Excelsior credits.
