Military-affiliated students who complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) qualify for federal, state, and institutional aid. Additional aid options may be available for these students through the Department of Veteran Affairs and/or Department of Defense.
Students who served on Active Duty, may be eligible for education benefits offered by the Department of Veterans Affairs. For example, the Post-9/11 GI Bill provides financial support for educational and housing expenses to individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate service after September 10, 2001, or individuals discharged with a service- connected disability after 30 days. Students must have received an honorable discharge to be eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill.
If the student is currently serving in the military, they may be eligible for funding offered through the Department of Defense Tuition Assistance program. Students should check their eligibility status and the amount for which they may qualify with their Service prior to enrolling.
If the student is the spouse or child of a service member who is serving on active duty Title 10 orders in the paygrades of E1-E5, O1-O2, or W1-W2, the student may be eligible for financial assistance from the Department of Defense for education, training, and/or the occupational license and credentials necessary for a portable career.
If the student is the spouse or child of a service member, the student may be eligible for transfer of the service member’s Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits to the student.
