Offering Tuition Assistance for Active Duty Military During Government Shutdown

Offering Tuition Assistance for Active Duty Military During Government Shutdown

This month, in response to the government shutdown placing a moratorium on U.S. Military Tuition assistance, City University of Seattle declared they will support Active Duty Military applying to CityU and not wait for the moratorium to pass. In the event tuition assistance was not retroactively provided for Active Duty Military who have received approval prior to the government shutdown, CityU committed to not holding these students financially responsible for classes taken during fall quarter.

As a nonprofit focused on access to education, CityU believes that the education of men and women in the U.S. Military should not be interrupted due Congress’ inability to agree on a budget. Active Duty Military personnel who are eligible for military tuition assistance are encouraged to register and begin this fall quarter.

“It is our conviction that we should do everything we can to support those serving our country. Providing tuition assistance is the least we can do for the men and women who have sacrificed much for our freedom,” said President Richard Carter.

This was one of two acts that CityU did in October which underscored its commitment to serving the United States Military. The second can be read about here. For more information about military financial assistance please contact CityU’s Financial Aid office at 206-239-4540 or visit its website here.
