Tuition Reduction

Several tuition reduction options may be available to you depending on your situation:

  • Employees - Some institutions, including many Seventh-day Adventist entities, provide benefit-eligible employees with tuition reduction or assistance. This often applies to the employee and his or her spouse and dependents. Check with your employer to see if this benefit is available in your situation.
  • Peace Corps volunteers -Students who volunteer with the Peace Corps receive funding while serving, as well as a stipend at the end of their tour. Students with outstanding student loans may also defer repayment while volunteering, and some Perkins loans may even be reduced altogether. Check the Peace Corps web site for more information, and see our Peace Corps pages for our program information.
  • Recruiting new students - Students at LLU School of Public Health are eligible for tuition reduction when they recruit new students. If a current student has encouraged you to come to LLU SPH, give them a tuition break by naming them.
