California Baptist University’s online programs now are eligible for Tuition Assistance for Active Duty, Reserve, and National Guard Military Personnel.
California Baptist University (CBU) recently signed an agreement with the Department of Defense (DOD) to offer the standardized Tuition Assistance (TA) program. This program provides financial assistance for voluntary off-duty education programs in support of military personnel who are on active duty, and reserves/national guard components. Participation in this program opens up a significant new market for CBU’s online degree and course offerings for our servicemen and women.
“I’m proud of our student veteran and military friendly efforts at CBU and I am thrilled that we can now open up TA benefits to serve a whole new population of those serving our country,” said Jay Villasenor, academic coordinator for Veteran Services at CBU.
“Online courses offer servicemen and women flexibility and convenience to complete their college education, regardless of where they may be stationed, live, or in some cases even if they are currently deployed overseas,” Villasenor continued. “The ability to offer TA is a testament to the University’s strong commitment to our nation’s veterans and active military personnel.”
Pamela Daly, vice president for Online and Professional Studies said the addition of Tuition Assistance for military personnel will benefit troops looking to choose an affordable, accessible and reputable online degree program.
“Since CBU is a repeat recipient of the U.S. News and World Report annual ranking for Best Online Programs for Veterans, service members can feel confident in earning a CBU degree,” Daly said. “As a G.I. Bill, Tuition Assistance, and Yellow Ribbon Program participant, our goal at CBU is to significantly reduce the tuition rate and open the door to our accelerated, fully online degree programs for the entire U.S. military population. With the addition of Tuition Assistance, I am happy to say that goal has now been met,” Daly added.
