Cal U is trimming the cost of higher education for military veterans and their families. A Cal U student in military uniform stands among his fellow Cal U graduates on commencement day.

Beginning with the Fall 2016 semester, tuition costs will be discounted for veterans of all U.S. military branches, as well as their spouses and eligible dependents, when they enroll in Cal U Global Online, California University’s 100% online learning community.

Undergraduates seeking an associate or bachelor’s degree through Global Online will pay a reduced rate of $250 per credit. Master’s degree students will pay $399 per credit, or 90 percent of the in-state rate, no matter where they reside.

The discount for veterans mirrors the reduced tuition rate for active-duty military members that Cal U first offered in summer 2014. Since its inception, the program for active-duty military has increased online enrollment by service members and their families by more than 80 percent.
