Military Grant-in-Aid

The Military Grant-in-Aid program makes it possible for service members and their spouses to save on undergraduate tuition. Offered only through Penn State World Campus, this program lowers the cost of undergraduate tuition by bringing our tuition rate closer to the Department of Defense Tuition Assistance cap. Grant-in-Aid cannot be combined with any GI Bill® benefits.


  • Active duty, guard, and reserve for all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, and their spouses (individual Ready Reserve and inactive National Guard are not eligible)
  • Applicable to all undergraduate programs and undergraduate courses offered by Penn State World Campus
  • You, or your spouse, must be serving in the military at some point during the semester in which you are registering
  • Service members and/or spouses electing to use their GI Bill® education benefits (any chapter) or any other Penn State Grant-in-Aid are not eligible
