Military Spouses

As a military-supportive school, Regent University recognizes that military spouses are the "heroes at home" who love and support our service men and women defending our precious freedom. We are proud and honored to support the education of our military spouses as a Military Spouse Career Advancement Account (MyCAA) school. All of Regent's eight schools offer a military spouse discount, up to 25%. Please contact your individual school's admissions office for details.

MyCAA Program Overview

Spouses of active-duty military and activate National Guard and Reserves may apply for up to $4,000 of financial assistance to help pay for licenses, certifications and education (up to associate's degree) in high-growth, high-demand, portable career fields. As a participating institution, Regent University provides eligibility for students to take advantage of this program. For details, visit the official MyCAA website.

Here's how MyCAA works:

  • Visit https://aiportal.acc.af.mil/mycaa/ to open an account.
  • Complete the online application, telling the MyCAA counselor what course(s) you want, how much tuition the courses will cost, when they start and what your career objective is.
  • Once approved by MyCAA, submit your Letter of Authorization to Regent University's Business Office, who will bill the Department of Defense directly and deduct from your MyCAA account.
