Military Tuition Discounts & Scholarships

University policy restricts institutional financial aid (scholarships/grants) from paying more than 100% of tuition when combined with certain non-Regent awards. Should your GI benefit cover 100% of your tuition costs, there are certain situations in which your GI Benefit will take precedence over any institutional scholarships or grants for which you might otherwise qualify. Examples of this are:

  • All non-Law School Yellow Ribbon eligible students
  • Undergraduate students who are 100% post-9/11 GI Bill® eligible

Should your status for 100% eligibility change, or you reach your annual $17,500 cap, you would then be able to utilize your institutional scholarship or grant.

Under certain circumstances, your GI Benefit may be used in conjunction with other institutional awards for which you may qualify. Examples of this are:

  • All veterans or active duty service members whose percentage of eligibility is less than 100% (Regent awards will be reduced to the combined maximum of 100% tuition)
  • Graduate and doctoral students who are 100% active duty

The purpose for this policy is to best utilize the $17,500 maximum and have the minimum impact on the semester costs for students as a result of the new GI benefit tuition caps.
