Individually Designed Education for Adult Learners (IDEAL)
Averett University recognizes the importance of education for members of the Military. Our commitment includes providing programs and services for active duty and reserve Military members, DoD/State Military Civilian Employees, Military and Civilian Family Members, and Veterans.
Reduced Tuition for Active Duty Military
In recognition of the tremendous service that the active duty Military provides to the nation, Averett's IDEAL Program provides a special tuition rate of $250 per credit hour.
Averett University accepts tuition assistance from all military services. Tuition costs have been carefully examined to ensure that the maximum benefit is accorded to the service member. In many instances, military personnel will be able to complete their degree with limited out of pocket tuition costs.
Military credit is accepted from Military Training Courses, Occupational Specialty, and Service Colleges. Application of military credit to core curriculum requirements may be limited.
