We Are Proud to Serve Our Active Duty Military & Our Military Veterans

Limestone University is dedicated to serving the needs of our military students. Limestone’s Military Service Center is staffed by prior service members who understand the unique challenges you may face.

Military and veteran students can receive transfer credit from military transcripts based on the America Council on Education (ACE) guide recommendations.

To show our appreciation for our armed forces, Limestone’s online program offers a military discount for our undergraduate degrees. The discounted tuition is nearly one-half of the regular tuition rate. Service members may qualify who are Active Duty, National Guard, or Reserve Members. The same service members can receive a $100 per credit hour discount for our Graduate Program.

In addition to military tuition discounts, we are here to help maximize your education benefits, including the GI Bill®, Military Tuition Assistance, and financial aid.

GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by the VA is available at the official U.S. government website.

Military Friendly 24-25 Gold
For the third consecutive year, Limestone University has been designated as a “Military Friendly® School” by Viqtory Media, earning Gold-Level status for 2024-2025. Only 13 percent of participating institutions earned the prestigious Gold-Level recognition.
