Military / Veteran Students

Thank you for your previous and continued service to our great country!

As a Non-For Profit Lutheran institution that demonstrates the characteristics of being Military Friendly, you can be assured that we are committed to providing first class service to support our Active, Reserve, and Veteran personnel and their families.

Active Duty Personnel

Concordia University accepts the Armed Forces Tuition Assistance (TA) Programs. This program offers eligible Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, National Guard, and Reserve members a benefit that pays up to 100% of tuition expenses for voluntary higher education taken during off-duty hours in support of professional and personal self-development goals.

Reserve Duty Personnel

Reserve personnel who are activated under Title 10 orders may qualify for the Tuition Assistance (TA) Program.

Each branch of service administers its own benefits criteria, including award amounts, eligibility, restrictions, and application process. Please visit the following for more information.


Concordia is dedicated to working with our Veteran students and their families to ensure affordable tuition and our education programs have been consistently recognized as a great return on investment. Veterans have numerous options using military education benefits, applying for scholarships, and utilizing financial aid if needed. Click here to see the Federal and State benefits.
