Eastern Kentucky University says it is reducing tuition for students who are serving active duty in the military.
A statement from the school in Richmond says effective immediately active duty service members on federal orders for at least 180 days will be charged $250 per credit hour for undergraduate courses and $325 per credit hour for graduate courses. EKU spokesman Jerry Wallace says typical fees for online classes are $409 per credit hour for undergraduate courses and between $510 and $611 for graduate courses.
Eastern says the aim is to make higher education possible for service members on active duty, no matter their location. Students can still apply for federal financial aid and can use GI Bill benefits for any remaining costs.
