Affordability for Veterans & Active Military

We aim to give our service members the best chance at an affordable education. Here’s how:

  • Eligible out-of-state veterans can apply for resident student status to receive in-state tuition.
  • Student veterans receive priority registration after orientation.
  • Credit may be awarded for certain military service training and experience. Learn more here.
  • The state of Utah offers the Tuition Gap program, which pays tuition for qualifying veterans who have established Utah residency, have no VA educational benefits available, and have only a year left before earning their first bachelor’s degree.

Location is Key

  • The U is across the street from a regional VA office and one of the top VA hospitals.
  • We are a top-ranked school located in a beautiful veteran-friendly state.
