Faulkner University Offers Half Tuition for First Responders

This discount applies to public safety professionals across the U.S.

Montgomery - Alabama, September 05, 2018

Faulkner University has a long tradition of honoring and supporting the nation’s first responders and local communities, and one way the university is showing its gratitude for their service is by offering them a 50 percent reduction in college tuition.

The discount applies to public safety professionals across the nation and includes Law Enforcement, Fire and Emergency Medical Services personnel. Most staff members of these departments also qualify.

With 50 percent tuition reduction in most Faulkner University programs, first responders will have access to some of the top ranked higher education programs in the country, both online and at campuses in Montgomery, Huntsville, Mobile and Birmingham.

U.S. News and World Report ranks Faulkner’s Master of Justice Administration #19 nationally for online graduate programs in criminal justice.

Faulkner University first offered the 50 percent tuition reduction plan to first responders in Alabama in 2016. It has since expanded to include public safety professionals across the country.

Mark Hunt, Faulkner's Associate Vice President for Executive and Professional Enrollment, said he's excited to continue the tradition of serving our communities, states, and nation and that Faulkner will continue to partner with first responders.

“One of the goals of our offer is to give back to those who risk their lives to protect and serve, while also expanding the footprint of Faulkner University across the nation,” Hunt said.

Faulkner University offers the tuition reduction plan under the following guidelines:

  • Must satisfy all admission requirements and maintain satisfactory academic progress
  • Must remain continuously enrolled, including summers, until completion of the degree
  • Cannot be combined with any other institutional (Faulkner-based) discount, award, grant, or scholarship, but may still be used in conjunction with state or federal financial aid, including loans and grants, if eligible.
  • Enrollment limits may apply in certain programs
  • Standard fees apply
  • Must provide a letter from employer on letterhead verifying employment prior to initial enrollment and again prior to every subsequent fall semester.
  • The offer does not apply to Faulkner Law (Jones School of Law), the MA/MS in Speech Language Pathology, the M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction, the M.Ed. in Elementary Education or to anyone entering as a traditional student on the Montgomery campus. Faulkner retains the right to exclude additional programs without further notice.
