Keep an eye on the balance shown in your Student Center

How is tuition calculated?

The amount that the Army will pay for is set by the State of Idaho.  You can receive up to $2,766 per full-time semester for campus-based degree programs and $250 per credit for classes in fully-online degree programs, including the Online Degree Pathway.
