LPS for Military Personnel
Round out your military experience with a civilian leadership degree and use your veteran’s benefits to complete your bachelor’s degree in leadership at NC State.
The LPS program is a great fit for veterans: it offers you the chance to make a difference for yourself, your nation and the world, by providing an academic background that dovetails with your professional experience.
LPS is specifically created to provide active duty military, veterans and their families with a liberal arts foundation in the ethical, theoretical and policy analytical skills necessary to be effective leaders in public sector organizations. The LPS core curriculum focuses on leadership in local, state, federal and nonprofit organizations, but the program itself includes a broad range of courses that allow students to complete their bachelor’s degree requirements within NC State’s College of Humanities and Social Sciences.
The LPS program allows students to advance their military careers or prepare for transition to the civilian sector — no matter where you are stationed or deployed — and earn a B.A. degree or certificate that is identical to any other NC State University program. LPS graduates find career opportunities in public and nonprofit organizations and firms, as well as additional educational opportunities in political science, public administration, nonprofit sector management and law.
We Accommodate Your Needs
Soldiers and their family members can work toward their B.A. wherever they are stationed and retain their in-state tuition as long as they begin the program while stationed in North Carolina and maintain their enrollment status. The LPS program provides military-friendly resources, such as advisers trained to assist with military and VA benefits.

Courses Transferring Into The LPS Curriculum
Tuition and Fees
Distance Education courses are charged per credit hour. To obtain detailed information about current tuition rates please visit DELTA’s financial information web site.
Please note that most courses are 3 credit hours, so you need to multiply the cost per credit hour listed by the number of credit hours for the course. Once a student has applied and enrolled in classes, the Cashier’s Office can process payments.
Tuition rates and fees are subject to change. A student is responsible for charges incurred if they do not drop the course from their schedule prior to the last day to receive a full refund. Drops after that date will receive partial refunds based on the schedule prepared by the Cashier’s Office. No refunds will be given after the last day to drop a class with a refund.
These rates are not included as part of on-campus tuition and fees and are subject to change. These rates apply only to Distance Education courses, which are identified with a 601 section number or higher and are calculated on a per credit hour basis for all semesters. All other section numbers are considered campus-based and are billed as such. Undergraduate level courses are identified with a course number of 499 or below.
For Military Members, Veterans and Spouses
Military members, veteran and spouses have different sources of financial support and residency requirements.
Active duty military personnel whose permanent duty station and location is in North Carolina — and their military dependents — are eligible to receive the benefit of in-state tuition even if they are not residents of North Carolina. As long as students begin their course work as an LPS student while stationed in North Carolina, they can maintain their instate status no matter where they are transferred as long as they maintain their enrollment status.
For more information regarding Military Verification Documentation, contact Allison Bennett via email or at (919) 513-4277
Military members also have access to financial aid resources such as the GI Bill. The NC State Veterans Affairs website is also an excellent resource for information about military educational benefits.
Payment Once You Are Enrolled
Payment of tuition and fees for distance education courses is handled through the Cashier’s Office. While that office is your best resource for information, we have provided some quick descriptions below, along with links to those specific areas of the Cashier’s Office website
