Ok. Here's the skinny on this one. NLU cut it's tuition costs for Active Duty, Reserve, Guard, Spouses, and dependents. The catch is, you can't take classes on campus. Only online, on-base, or off site. And for Active Duty folks only, this tuition is covered by Tuition Assistance.

Tuition Cut By 43%


NLU Reduces Price For Active Military Personnel, Veterans, Military Spouses and Dependents, National Guard and Department of Defense Employees.


Beginning Fall Semester 2007, National-Louis University (NLU) is reducing the per credit hour cost of its tuition for active military personnel, veterans, military spouses and dependents, National Guard and Department of Defense employees. Tuition is now $167 per credit hour for undergraduate degree programs and $250 per credit hour for graduate degree programs. The new rate is covered by the Tuition Assistance (TA) for active military and is only available for programs offered online, on base and off site through NLU’s Virginia campus.


The new tuition represents a 60 percent reduction from NLU’s current rate—and a 43 percent reduction of the rate previously available to the military.


NLU is a private, regionally accredited, not-for-profit university founded in 1886 with a long history of serving the military in Northern Virginia and the District of Columbia. NLU faculty understand the needs of military students—and know what it means to be deployed. NLU is a member of the Virginia and Florida Advisory Council on Military Education (ACME) and Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC)—and many of the NLU faculty are retired from the service.


Military personnel can immediately begin earning a B.S. in Management and Management Information Systems and beginning next winter a B.S. in Health Care Leadership in about 16-18 months. Certain requirements must be met for these accelerated programs. Two graduate degrees—the MBA and M.S. in Management—are also available online and in face-to-face classes off site.


If certain criteria are met, transfer credits for military students can be evaluated in two hours and the entire enrollment process can be completed within ten days.


Fall classes begin in September 2007. More information is available online at www.nl.edu/military and by phone toll-free at 1-888-550-8040.
