National American University is proud to have served students affiliated with the U.S. military since 1941. If you've served your country and earned funds to support your continuing education, NAU understands how you might access military benefits, and can help you make it happen. NAU is approved for veteran's training and is a member of the Service Members of Opportunities Colleges (SOCAD).
Transfer your years of military experience into college credit.
National American University offers services to meet your unique needs by offering flexible class schedules, credit for life, work and military experience, and free military evaluations. You may be surprised at just how fast you can complete your studies. NAU arranges the quickest path to degree and full credit for your military education by taking advantage of American Council on Education (ACE) credit assessment services. ACE continuously evaluates military schools, correspondence courses and occupations to determine the amount and level of academic credit each should be awarded. Through ACE credits, you may earn academic credit for most of the training you have received, including basic training, and you can reduce the time required and cost for your studies.
Military Tuition Assistance
You can make your studies even more affordable by making sure that you take advantage of your Tuition Assistance (TA) funding. Armed Forces TA funds are available to eligible members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard. Tuition assistance programs provide assistance of 75% to 100% of allowable tuition costs, depending on the branch of service. DANTES will pay course costs once a passing grade is received. You will need to submit the original DANTES 1562/31 three-copy form.
Military tuition assistance verification forms are obtained from your military education office. You will need to provide the course codes, class name, tuition costs per class to complete the form. Once a pre-approved tuition assistance verification form is obtained, provide a copy of that form to your financial service representative.
If you are using military tuition assistance resources you must provide completed verification forms and complete the National American University promissory note by the first day of class. Your financial service representative can help you complete this process.
You may also be qualified for GI Bill funding to cover tuition costs not already covered by TA. In all cases, eligibility for military benefits is dependent on your completion of application requirements as administered by your branch of the armed forces. You may be surprised at just how far along in our programs you might start, and just how affordable NAU can be as you continue your studies.
Veterans Education Benefits
Veterans and/or dependents of veterans who are disabled or deceased may qualify for educational financial assistance through the Veterans Administration. Since the regulations regarding eligibility are quite extensive and many times need interpretation, contact your local veterans service office.
