Union Institute & University is proud to serve students affiliated with the U.S. military. Union Institute & University’s programs and services provide you with the opportunity to secure full credit for your military education and experience. You may be surprised at just how quickly you can complete your studies.
You can assure yourself the quickest path to full credit for your military education by taking advantage of American Council on Education (ACE) credit assessment services. Since 1942, ACE has developed and refined credit assessment processes to recognize the educational value of military training and experience. ACE continuously evaluates military schools, correspondence courses, and occupations to determine the amount and level of academic credit each should be awarded. Through ACE, you have the opportunity to transfer much of the training you have received into academic credit, this includes basic training.
Our undergraduate tuition rate is $490 per credit hour. Check the Tuition & Payment Options for complete tuition and fee information for our undergraduate, masters and doctoral programs.
