SUU Continues Support of Students in the Military

Southern Utah University  online


Southern Utah University is proud to announce a renewed partnership with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to give tuition assistance to active members of the military.

Aid has always been given to military service members at SUU, but when the DoD issued a new memorandum of understanding in January of 2012, SUU chose to give comparable aid directly to service members instead of utilizing federal tuition assistance because of cost effectiveness.

“In the past,” explained John Allred, university registrar, “the University chose not to sign a memorandum of understanding with the DoD because it was deemed more cost effective to internally subsidize the education of those active service members who qualified for federal tuition assistance.”
