Military Spouse & Dependents

Military spouses and dependents are often required to move to new locations, which can make it difficult to achieve your educational goals.  To help keep you on track, UIU offers flexible and affordable educational opportunities.  We offer face-to-face, online and self-paced learning opportunities to individuals located around the world.  Members of the total military family can mix and match the style of courses to provide the best fit for their busy lives.   

Military Family Grant & Scholarships

The Military Family Grant offers a $250 per credit hour tuition rate for undergraduate courses and a $325 per credit hour tuition rate for graduate course to the spouses and dependents of all active duty, reserve, and National Guard service members.

Upper Iowa University also offers Military Spouse Scholarships annually. Contact your Academic Advisor for more details.
