Faulkner University offers tuition break for first responders

Published 2:01 am Saturday, November 11, 2017

Faulkner University wants to honor and support the nation’s first responders, and one way the university is showing its gratitude is by offering them a 50 percent reduction in college tuition.

The discount includes law enforcement, fire and EMS personnel. Staff members of these departments may qualify as well.

With the new tuition reduction, first responders will have access to some of the top ranked education programs in the country, offline and online.

The tuition reduction plan started in 2016, and has since expanded to public safety professionals across the country.

“One of the goals of our offer is to give back to those who risk their lives to protect and serve, while also expanding the footprint of Faulkner University across the region and throughout the nation,” Mike Hunt, Faulkner’s associate vice president for executive and professional enrollment, said.

Faulkner University offers the tuition reduction plan under the following guidelines:

  • Must satisfy all admission requirements and maintain satisfactory academic progress
  • Must remain continuously enrolled, including summers, until completion of the degree
  • Cannot be combined with any other institutional discount, award, grant or scholarship
  • Enrollment limits may apply in certain programs
  • Standard fees apply
  • Must provide a letter from employer on letterhead verifying employment prior to initial enrollment and again prior to every subsequent fall semester.

The offer does not apply to Faulkner Law (Jones School of Law), the MA/MS in Speech Language Pathology, the M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction, or to anyone entering as a traditional student on the Montgomery campus. Faulkner retains the right to exclude additional programs without further notice.

Offer not available to residents of Massachusetts or Pennsylvania
