Active Duty and Retired Military Education Programs

Whether your intention is to translate your military training and experience into a civilian job, or explore an entirely new career path, William Howard Taft University offers a number of program options delivered in a way that allows you to advance your career goals even while in active military service.

Taft University participates in VA and TA education programs designed specifically for active duty, reserve, veterans or spouse and family.

In most cases your military benefits will cover 100% of your tuition, fees and books. You could earn your degree with no out of pocket expenses.

Active duty military (Marines, Navy, Air Force, National Guard or Army Reserve) can use Military Tuition Assistance to pay for university education.

Veterans have access to over $40,000 in education benefits, but they won't be available forever. If a degree at Taft University is a good fit for you, don't wait until it is too late, get started today!

Some of the benefits of earning your degree at Taft University include:

  • Courses offered on a 24/7 basis. Students have the opportunity to perform coursework from almost anywhere in the world without having to set foot on a campus. There are no set class times. Students work at their own pace subject to limitations of the degree program.
  • Affordable tuition and reduced fees. In most cases your entire costs may be covered through various military benefit programs. Active and retired military pay no application fees, no library fees, no trimester registration fees, and no graduation fees.
  • An Excellent fit for special needs. Taft University online programs can be delivered "anytime, anywhere". They are an excellent fit for students with restricted mobility, disability, geographic limitations, and family responsibilities.
  • Accommodating for special circumstances. Students involuntarily activated for military service can continue their studies even while on deployment, or may take a "leave of absence" without penalty.
  • Generous Transfer Credit. Taft University programs allow for the maximum allowable amount of credit transfer and credit for military training. There is no charge to active or retired military for transcript evaluation. Taft University will also consider credits earned from various approved exams (CLEP, DSST, PEP, etc.) depending on the degree program.
  • Practitioner Faculty. In most cases, faculty members are also practitioners in the subject areas they teach, bringing relevant and up-to-date knowledge and day-to-day experience to the online learning process.

Veterans can discuss eligibility directly with a VA education representative, using a toll free number 888-442-4551. They will answer your questions and provide instructions on the application process.
