Grace Christian University is proud of the courageous men and women who serve our country, and we delight in being a military friendly university.

We offer military tuition assistance, help processing your GI Bill college benefits and other applicable military scholarships and benefits.  We also offer college credit for qualified military training and/or experience. We are here to help you with your military scholarships and veteran benefits, so that you can focus on your academic goals.


As a military friendly school, the Online Programs at Grace Christian University offer a military tuition discount of $250 per credit hour on our Online Associate, Online Bachelor, and Online Master courses. (The military discount applies to our Online degree programs only, and does not apply to the On Campus degree program.). This discount is offered to all military service members, veterans, military spouses, and dependents 23 or under (Honorable Discharge required). This is in an effort to match the GI Bill® college benefit of $250 per credit hour and potentially allow military students to attend Grace Christian University with no out of pocket cost. The military tuition assistance is offered at any time throughout the year to all qualified individuals and applies to all classes taken online. Individuals receiving the military discount are required to cover the Resource Fee associated with each course.
