How much does the program cost?

Daemen University received a $1.5 million dollar grant from Foundation 214, an organization committed to helping improve the lives of veterans through education. In partnership with Foundation 214 and Total Testing Education, Active Duty, Reservists, and Veterans will earn a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration by completing 30 courses online with all testing fees covered by Foundation 214 saving up to $85,000 depending on transfer credit.

The remaining 10 courses will be completed online with a small group of veteran and military students.  Daemen University’s Veteran Services Team will provide every participant with personalized assistance accessing military educational benefits, tuition assistance, state and federal financial aid, if eligible, covering the full cost of the remaining 10 courses.
