Purple Heart Tuition Waiver
NAU is proud to be officially recognized as a Purple Heart School by the Military Order of the Purple Heart. As part of our commitment to serving our veterans and military affiliated families we manage the Purple Heart Tuition Waiver process for our students who qualify.
The Purple Heart Tuition Waiver agreement states:
“The Arizona board of regents, after verification by the Arizona department of veterans’ services that a person is a member or former member of the United States armed forces who received a purple heart citation, who was a resident of the state of Arizona or was stationed in Arizona at the time of the injury that resulted in the purple heart citation and whose disability rating determined by the United States department of veterans affairs is fifty percent or more, shall provide the person who otherwise meets the qualifications for admission with a tuition waiver scholarship at any university under the jurisdiction of the board.”
If you qualify for the Purple Heart Tuition Waiver please contact Director of Veteran & Military Services, Pete Yanka, directly.
