COST AND Financial aid for military students
At BHSU, we are committed to supporting those who have served our country. If you are a member of the military community, you may be eligible for tuition assistance for active military tuition reduction. When you apply to Black Hills State University, you WILL NOT be charged an admissions fee, as you will be considered a non-degree seeking student since you will just be taking general education courses.
Discounted Active Military Tuition Rate
Active military members can apply for a reduced military rate for undergraduate classes. This will lower your tuition to $250 per credit hour. If you apply for the reduced tuition rate and Air Force TA (see below) you would cover the cost of your tuition. To apply for this discounted rate, please complete this form, and return to Greg Krajewski (Admissions Office--RM 134) or give to front desk person to give to Greg at the BHSU-RC campus. You can email it to him at Gregory.Krajewski@bhsu.edu. Include your most recent LES with the application.
Air Force Tuition Assistance
You will need to contact your education service officer to determine your eligibility. You will also need to get authorization from your command before you can apply. Once you are deemed eligible, you can then register for classes. To learn more information about Air Force FTA, click here. For detailed step-by-step instructions, click here.
