Reduced Tuition for Active Military Members:
As of January 2015, BHSU-RC has been approved to offer a pilot program with reduced tuition rates for all current and active military men and women enrolled in courses at BHSU-RC. The reduced rate is $250 per credit hour. The federal government currently provides federal tuition assistance up to a maximum of $250 per credit hour to military students, so this reduced rate will cover the full cost of a military student’s education.

 This tuition rate is applicable to all undergraduate classes offered face to face at BHSU-RC, regardless of which institution offers them, for active military personnel.  For any questions on this program, please contact Jonathan Elm, BHSU-RC Veterans Resource Coordinator or the home school certifying official.
