Tuition Assistance for Active Duty Military
Peru State College is glad to be continually recognized as one of the most affordable
four-year schools in the nation and Nebraska. Plus, with our One Rate, Any State Program
you never pay out-of-state tuition!
Military Tuition Assistance is a benefit paid to eligible members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard (in regular service and reserves). Congress has given each of our armed services the ability to pay up $250 per credit hour and $4500 per year for tuition.
Any service member interested in attending Peru State College should first speak to their education service officer (ESO) or counselor within their military service prior to enrolling.
Each service has its own criteria for eligibility, obligated service, application process' and restrictions. This money is usually paid directly to the institution by the individual services. Tuition Assistance is not a loan, though some services may require repayment if you are academically deficient in a course.
Tuition Assistance covers up to 16 hours a semester, but books and other course materials are not covered.
Additional scholarships, including the Military Service Scholarship, are also available for Peru State students. New and transfer undergraduate students are encouraged to review more information about scholarships and Peru State College's cost of attendance online or call The Office of Admissions at 402-872-2221.
The Business Office provides a complete breakdown of tuition and fees for undergraduate and graduate students. Peru State's Net Price Calculator can also be an important tool in determining your total cost of attendance.
