Students can choose from a variety of top-ranked online master's degree and certificate programs while learning from the same world-class faculty who teach on campus at the University of Miami.

"This university makes it a priority to take care of active-duty service members and veterans. My advisors and VA representatives were always quick to answer any questions that I had and always ensured I was taken care of while utilizing my GI Bill for the program. UOnline is structured to accommodate full-time working professionals. Every class afforded me the opportunity to learn at the pace that I needed. All of my professors held their Zoom office hours during realistic times for full-time working adults. I am so glad I got to attend the University of Miami. The knowledge I gained has truly made me a better learner, teacher, and leader."

We participate in the Yellow Ribbon Grant program, which awards eligible students funds for tuition and fees that the GI Bill does not cover. The VA matches these funds.

In addition, UOnline tuition waivers and a variety of external scholarships are available for active and veteran service members and their families to remove financial barriers to completing a degree or certificate.

The University of Miami also participates in the Department of Defense (DoD) Tuition Assistance (TA) Program which provides financial assistance to service members for voluntary off-duty education programs in support of their professional and personal self-development goals.
