APUS is providing a grant to cover the fee for Active Duty Military, Guard and Reserve personnel, or for anyone using Military Tuition Assistance. The grant will also cover the fee for students using VA education benefits.

Will financial aid cover this?
Will tuition assistance cover this?
If you are paying for your tuition with Military Tuition Assistance or VA education benefits the APUS grant covering the technology fee for your courses will be automatically applied.
If a course requires the purchase of software, will the technology fee cover this?
No. The technology fee offsets the cost of technology investments and support in the classroom and campus, but not the purchase of course-specific software for class assignments.
