SDI helps military students succeed

Resources for You

We hold our nation's service men and women in highest regard. The freedom we have to educate our students comes from your sacrifice and dedication. And we do not take that for granted.

We strive to provide the best possible service to our current and former service members as they pursue their educational goals.  

SDI makes it a priority to promote lifelong learning and professional development for veterans, active-duty military, and their families by offering:

  • Active duty tuition rate of $250 per semester credit hour
  • Educational Resource Fee waiver for active duty students
  • Scholarships for active duty and veteran students
  • Support and assistance in navigating U.S. Department of Defense Tuition Assistance (TA) benefits and Veteran Affairs benefits funding
  • Student advocacy from SDI Military & Veteran Services staff at every level, from the admissions process through graduation
  • SALUTE National Honor Society for eligible student veterans
