Support for veterans, active-duty service members

Purdue University’s 100% online programs are accessible anywhere, anytime making it possible to complete them even while deployed. They feature the same high quality and academic rigor as the programs on Purdue University’s flagship campus in West Lafayette, Indiana, and are taught by the same world-class faculty.

Many students have questions about the military education benefits they may have earned through their service, or if they can use these benefits toward Purdue University’s online degrees.

Purdue’s Veterans Success Center (VSC) provides guidance about and access to military-related education benefits and opportunities for personal and professional development. This includes undergraduate and graduate program fee waivers for military veterans and active service members, and benefits such as the GI Bill and Military Tuition Assistance.

Federal Government Employee Benefits

Purdue University’s participation in the Federal Academic Alliance also gives federal employees, their spouses and legal dependents the opportunity to take advantage of reduced tuition rates and receive specialized support.
