At a May 17 event, Boise State announced that it will honor the federal government’s Tuition Assistance rate of $250 per credit in select undergraduate online degree programs for active duty, guard and reserve members. The per-credit rate promise is available for students utilizing Tuition Assistance beginning fall 2019. Eligible online degree programs include multidisciplinary studies, applied science, management, public relations, public health, imaging sciences and the online degree pathway.
“Boise State is committed to our goal of modernizing the university’s relationship with the military and providing opportunities to expand access and reduce barriers to quality education resources,” said Sean Hunter, the director of Community-Based Educational Outreach at Boise State and a member of the Idaho Army National Guard.
The event was attended by military leaders from Mountain Home Air Force Base, as well as the Idaho National Guard, university leadership, members of the State Board of Education and military students to highlight higher education support for the armed forces. It promoted the efforts and partnerships of Idaho organizations that meet the educational needs of the modern military student – access, support, cost and quality – and demonstrate the state’s commitment to education and workforce development.
Boise State’s Division of Extended Studies has revamped how the university supports the unique needs of military members. These students benefit from flexible options, such as a wide variety of fully online degree programs that can be completed when and where students need them, testing services that enable service members to earn college credits and professional development opportunities that enhance a student’s military and post-military career.
