New Policy for Mitigating Circumstances Begins November 15, 2015

Beginning November 15, 2015, VA will require students using the Post-9/11 GI Bill to provide mitigating circumstances when they withdraw from or drop a course after the drop/add period and receive a non-punitive grade.


Our Office

Our mission is to smooth the transition from military life to student life by devoting individualized support to veteran students and their families in providing a broad range of services, coordinating with VA, university departments, and other community organizations.

Our staff can assist with the following:


  • Identifying federal and state education benefit options
  • Advocating military transfer credit
  • Withdrawals/re-admit due to deployments or call to Active Duty status
  • Connecting veteran students with campus resources, veteran service providers, and other agencies encouraging academic success at the University of Louisville


Active Duty Military Tuition Rate : Beginning Spring 2012, this includes Reserve Component Service Members who are receiving Department of Defense Title X tuition assistance funds. This rate is applicable to undergraduate and select graduate programs.
Active Duty orders must reflect 180 consecutive days duration or longer.

*NOTE does not apply to fixed-cost programs or to the professional schools

KY In-state Tuition Rates for Eligible Veterans : In support of our country's Veterans, the University of Louisville offers eligible Post 9/11 GI Bill education beneficiaries resident tuition rates for those who enroll as a non-resident. The current resident rates of $440 per credit hour are available to eligible Veteran students pursuing a baccalaureate degree at the University of Louisville.
