You serve our country and we’re honored to serve you.
SDI is dedicated to making education affordable for active duty military personnel. We gladly accept DoD Tuition Assistance (TA) that is available to eligible members of the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, Navy, National Guard, and Reserves. Additional standards exist to determine eligibility, and each branch has its own criteria for determining the amount of TA a service member may receive. Active duty military service members should contact their Education Services Officer (ESO) for details.
Upon enrollment, military connected students will be assigned a Financial Services Advisor (FSA) who will walk the student through the financial aid process including all relevant deadlines, eligibility requirements, and required documentation. All required documentation must be submitted no later than 14 days prior to the student’s start date. Students will keep their assigned FSA for the duration of their program.
