Auburn University at Montgomery is proud to serve the men and women who serve our nation in the armed forces.
In addition to helping you navigate military education benefits, federal scholarships and the Armed Forces Tuition Assistance program, AUM offers several scholarships to military personnel, both past and present. Whether you are a new student, have some college credit already, or are seeking to change directions after the military, there may be a scholarship to fit you.
Most of AUM’s scholarships are automatically awarded–based on the student’s GPA and test scores–without the need for a separate application form. AUM offers scholarships to freshmen and for students transferring from accredited two-year community colleges in Alabama. Participants in AUM’s Army ROTC program may also be eligible for scholarship opportunities ranging from two to four years.
Active Military and Dependent Tuition Scholarship
reduces tuition to $250 per credit hour!
Below are some of the available military financial aid/scholarship resources.
Armed Forces Tuition Assistance (TA/MilTA) is a benefit paid to eligible members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard. Depending on your branch, you may be eligible to receive up to 100% Federal Tuition Assistance from military service, with a $250 cap per semester hour and limits that can reach up to $4,500 per fiscal year.

The Alabama National Guard Education Assistance Program is an award to be used for tuition and educational fees for Alabama National Guard members to attend a public post-secondary educational institution in Alabama.The award Is based on financial need. Funds are limited, so students who are Guard members are encouraged to apply early.
With AUM’s Military and Dependent Scholarship, military personnel and their dependents may qualify for a 15% undergraduate tuition scholarship or 35% graduate tuition scholarship. This scholarship reduces tuition to $250 per credit hour at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. That means undergraduate students would save $165.00 per 3 semester credit hour class and graduate students would save $405.00 per 3 semester credit hour class. Some recipients may be eligible for reimbursement of remaining tuition, so your full tuition might be covered. Talk to your command center about your benefits.
To be eligible for the scholarship, students must meet the following requirements:
Stipulations for the AUM Military and Dependent Scholarship include the following:
Scholarship can only be used toward one degree at each level (one bachelor’s degree and one master’s degree).
* Some recipients may be eligible for reimbursement of remaining tuition, so your full tuition might be covered. Talk to your command center about your benefits.
The Green to Gold Active Duty Option Program provides eligible, active-duty enlisted soldiers an opportunity to complete a bachelor’s degree or a two-year graduate degree and earn a commission as an Army officer. Those wishing to obtain a Green to Gold Scholarship must submit required paperwork, apply via goarmy.com and receive a letter of acceptance from Auburn University at Montgomery.
The Alabama GI Dependent Scholarship Program is administered by the Alabama Department of Veterans Affairs. The veteran must meet qualification requirements to establish eligibility of his/her dependents. A dependent is defined as a child, stepchild, spouse or the unremarried widow or widower of the veteran.
The ROTC Campus-Based Scholarship is a four, three, or two-year scholarship for students who meet all eligibility requirements necessary to contract to become commissioned officers in the active-duty Army, Reserves, or National Guard.
The GRFD scholarship is available to those Army ROTC cadets participating in the Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP) between AUM Army ROTC and a Reserve/Guard unit. GRFD recipients are funded each year at full tuition and receive $1,200 for books. They are given an ROTC stipend for 10 months of the year at $420 per month. As a member of the Guard or Reserves, they will also receive drill pay. Those cadets who accept the GRFD Scholarship are locked into the Guard or Reserves upon commissioning.
If you are receiving VA benefits, you are required to provide the Veteran Services Office with an Academic Plan of Study checksheet. Your academic advisor will provide this form and work with you in developing your plan. Once you have completed all necessary forms, it takes 6-8 weeks for the Veterans Administration’s Regional Office (VARO) to finish processing your claim.
As a VA benefit recipient, you are required to make satisfactory academic progress by maintaining a minimum overall 2.0 GPA on hours attempted at AUM. This measure generally becomes effective when you have attempted 24 hours at AUM. If you fail to maintain the required GPA, you will have your VA benefits terminated.
The AUM Registration Cancellation Policy requires that you pay tuition and fees by the registration cancellation deadline. We will permit re-registration only if you make payments or payment arrangements at the time of registration. If you are awarded financial aid for the semester at issue, you will not be subject to cancellation for that portion of fees covered by financial aid. However, veteran benefits, other than Chapter 31 VA Vocational Rehabilitation and Post 9/11 Chapter 33, are not considered financial aid for this payment policy, so you are encouraged to make payments or payment arrangements to prevent course cancellation.
