Riverside – The Division of Online and Professional Studies (CBU Online) at California Baptist University is now offering tuition assistance for active duty, reserve and National Guard military personnel.

CBU recently signed an agreement with the U.S. Department of Defense to offer the Standardized Tuition Assistance (TA) program. The program provides financial assistance for voluntary off-duty education programs. Participation in this program opens up a significant new market for CBU’s online degree, and course offerings.

“I’m proud of our student veteran and military friendly efforts at CBU and I am thrilled that we can now open up TA benefits to serve a whole new population of those serving our country,” said Jay Villasenor, director of Veterans Resource Center at CBU.

“Online courses offer servicemen and women flexibility and convenience to complete their college education, regardless of where they may be stationed, live, or in some cases even if they are currently deployed overseas,” Villasenor continued. “The ability to offer TA is a testament to the university’s strong commitment to our nation’s veterans and active military personnel.”

Pamela Daly, vice president for CBU Online, said the addition of the Standardized Tuition Assistance program for military personnel will benefit troops looking to choose an affordable, accessible and reputable online degree program.

“As a G.I. Bill, tuition assistance and Yellow Ribbon Program university, our goal at CBU is to significantly reduce the tuition rate and open the door to our accelerated, fully online degree programs for the entire U.S. military population. With the addition of the new tuition assistance program, I am happy to say that goal is being met,” Daly said. “Additionally, CBU is a repeat highly ranked recipient of the U.S. News and World Report annual ranking for the ‘Best Online Programs for Veterans.’ Service members can rest assure that they will earn a quality degree at CBU.”
