Bellevue University Offers Deferred Tuition and Grants to Military Students Impacted by Federal Tuition Cuts
Bellevue University will defer tuition charges for current military students in response to the federal reductions in military tuition assistance. In addition, the University will offer new active duty military students a grant valued at three credit hours and will continue to provide all military students a clear map to apply and maximize their GI Bill benefits.
Recently, the Air Force joined the Army and Marine Corps in announcing that their students would have to use other tuition funding sources to fill the void left by the federal cuts in tuition assistance.
"The founding mission of our University was to serve nearby Offutt Air Force Base and today military servicepersons around the globe comprise a quarter of our student population," said Bellevue University President Dr. Mary B. Hawkins. "We are committed to the success of our military students and are proud to support them in their time of need."
"Our primary focus is to allay the concerns of those currently using Department of Defense tuition assistance," said Colonel Jim Biernesser, USAF (Retired) and director of Bellevue University Military Programs. "Alternative funding sources are available, most notably the various chapters of the GI Bill. Bellevue University is prepared to help with a smooth transition to this entitlement with knowledgeable counselors who will navigate the process with as little interruption to their studies as possible."
A military friendly institution for more than 40 years, Bellevue University offers counselors dedicated to military students, a military outreach team comprised entirely of veterans and one of the nation's largest Student Veterans Association. The University's award-winning online classroom offers a seamless learning experience, and the University's library provides complete access to extensive research materials from anywhere in the world, anytime.
"We make a concentrated effort to remain at the forefront of military trends, educational benefits and requirements," said Dr. Hawkins. "Our experience with military students and partnerships with military friendly organizations will help ease the transition of those students affected by the federal reductions in tuition assistance."
