Veteran's Education Benefits

Veteran’s education benefits are for veterans or dependents of veterans who may qualify for monthly education benefits. The Office of Financial Aid will not count VA education benefits as a resource when determining eligibility for other types of aid in accordance with federal policy. Students who anticipate receiving veteran's benefits and have questions should contact the Office of the Registrar.
