Quick March to a Better Future

At Florida National University (FNU), we understand your role as a Marine (Active-Reserve) and how important education is in assisting you on the career path. Whether it’s achieving the next rank or transitioning into the corporate world, education is the key to opening new doors. FNU offers fixed-affordable pricing for both onsite and distance learning education helping you to maximize your tuition assistance (TA).

Tuition Assistance

TA is authorized only for tuition charges and is authorized for up to 100 percent of tuition and fees including lab, technology, and distance learning fees, not to exceed $250 per semester hour, for undergraduate and graduate courses, and $4,500 per individual per fiscal year. Marines are responsible for costs that exceed TA authorized funding limits, as well as all non-tuition fees including, but not limited to, costs associated with room, board, equipment, supplies, books/materials, exams, insurance, parking, transportation, admissions, registration, or fines.

Initial and continued usage of TA is at the commanders’ discretion. Marines have no minimum time in service requirement for utilization of TA, however, there are several prerequisites that the Marine must meet prior to TA approval.

Marines who fail to successfully complete a course must reimburse received TA funds.  Successful course completion is defined for the purpose of reimbursement as a grade of “C” or higher for undergraduate courses, a “B” or higher for graduate courses, and a “pass” for “pass/fail” courses.  TA funds will be recouped from Marines for “D” and “F”/ “fail” grades, unresolved “I”/Incomplete, or courses from which the Marine voluntarily withdrew, resulting in a “W” grade.
