JIU Offers U.S. Military Personnel And Families Special Tuition Discounts And Extensions
DENVER, Colo. (Feb. 10, 2003)-Jones International University®, Ltd. (JIU™), the first fully online, accredited university, announced today that it will offer military personnel and their dependents a 20 percent discount on all courses for which they register by the end of 2003. In addition, if any such student is deployed while taking a JIU course or courses, the student can receive a full refund or register to retake the course at a later date, without incurring additional costs or fees.
“Many of our students are in the military. Some of them
have already been deployed, and others could be at any time,” said JIU’s president, Dr. Pamela S. Pease. “If, in the service of our country, our enlisted students cannot immediately complete the JIU courses they’ve begun, we want them to know that they can retake the courses or receive a full refund.”
Jones International University created the discount and refund program in response to inquiries from potential students in the military reluctant to commit to continuing education because of the uncertainty of their immediate futures.
“The new military discount from Jones International University is a valuable benefit for service members and their families,” said Christopher Michel, CEO of Military Advantage, a membership organization connecting its two million members to the benefits of service through www.Military.com. “We salute Jones International University for their strong support of Americans in uniform and their families.”
The JIU 20 percent military/family tuition discount can be redeemed by new or existing students or their dependents and can be applied to all of the courses in the 28 bachelor- and master-level degree programs JIU offers. To redeem the discount, students must present JIU with a copy of their military identification cards.
