Fort Detrick Soldiers

Hood College honors the full GoArmyEd tuition benefit of $250 per credit for active duty soldiers stationed at Ft. Detrick interested in a master's degree and/or post-baccalaureate certificate.

Interested in furthering your education?

Take advantage of the Fort Detrick-Hood College educational partnership, which provides scholarships for master's degrees to active duty military stationed at Fort Detrick. This scholarship program honors the full GoArmyEd tuition benefit of $250 per credit, so soldiers only pay for their one-time Hood College application fee ($50), textbooks and the annual campus fee ($125) as long as they are Tuition Assistance (TA) eligible.

See how to request Army Tuition Assistance (TA) here - for assistance contact the Education Services Officer at Fort Detrick at (301) 619-4537.
See Army Tuition Assistance (TA) policy here

* Please note that if you already have a Master's degree using TA benefits, Hood College will still honor the $250 per credit tuition price (should you choose to pay out of pocket). Also, if you are using your Veteran Educational Benefits (GI Bill or Post 911), you will not be eligible for this TA tuition discount as you can only apply for one or the other.

All masters-level tuition is covered under this program, which applies to ~20 master's programs in a variety of fields, like education, biomedical science, bioinformatics, cybersecurity, business, mental-health counseling and beyond! Peruse a list of Hood College graduate programs (degrees and certificates, including in-person, hybrid and online programs).

Learn more about this educational benefit and Hood master's degrees, which can help you to "Go further in your life, your career and community." Meet with current soldiers in Hood College's graduate programs in the ACES office on base Wednesdays, 0800-0930. No appointment is necessary.
