Military Waivers

Fees Waivers for Currently Students

Beginning Summer 2021, Albany State University (ASU) will waive all institutional fees for students who are currently serving in the military. In a continuation of strengthening ASU’s military friendliness, any student who is serving on active duty, reserve, or in the National Guard will be able to reduce their tuition cost. In order to take advantage of the military fee waiver, students must contact the Office of Military and Adult Education to set an appointment and show proof of service. Students can reach the Office of Military and Adult Education by emailing
