    I've been thinking about my graduate plans (just received my Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Ashford) and I was wondering if you guys know of any schools that give discounts for veterans. For example, Central Michigan University charges just $280 per credit hour ($250 for undergraduate) for honorably discharged veterans but I'm not interested in any of their graduate programs. Columbia Southern seems like a great deal, but they aren't RA (and I prefer RA because I'm thinking about going for my doctorate once I'm done with my master's). I know American Military University is pretty cheap too ($300 per credit hour) but I've been hearing that this school is not very respected outside of government circles. Plus I prefer an online degree from a brick and mortar school (if I go online for my classes).

    Right now I'm leaning towards going to George Mason University because of the quality of education, the decent cost ($431 per credit hour), and it's local (I would take classes at the school). However, if I can find a good online program with similar prices and prestige, I'd prefer that route (parking stinks at George Mason and I like doing my homework in my pajamas :wiggle:).

    I'm thinking that I can only find schools in George Mason's price range if the school offers a veteran's discount. So do you guys know of any schools with tuition in this range, or that offer a veteran's discount and/or book grant?

    By the way, I'd like to study sociology, anthropology, psychology, or other area that continues my education in sociology.

    IIRC, New Mexico State University has an MA in Sociology program with a reasonable tuition (lower than GMU, of which I am an alum).

    Liberty University offers discounts for veterans and their spouses. I am in their MS in Accounting program at $250 per unit. For those students working on an undergraduate degree, they give book vouchers from $100 to $400.

    TEKMAN Semper Fi!
