Veterans Administration Education Benefits
Veterans and/or dependents of veterans who are disabled or deceased may qualify for educational financial assistance through the Veterans Administration. Since the regulations regarding eligibility are quite extensive and many times need interpretation, contact your local veteran’s service office. You may need a copy of your DD214.
All students receiving Veterans Educational benefits must maintain satisfactory academic progress in accordance with the regularly prescribed standards and practices of United States University. If the student is not making satisfactory academic progress according to these standards and practices, education benefits will be discontinued for the student. Veteran and non-veteran students alike will be referred to Student Services for counseling to a program that may offer the possibility of success.
Military Tuition Assistance
We provide certification for veterans. You can make your studies even more affordable by making sure that you take advantage of your Tuition Assistance (TA) funding. Armed Forces TA funds are available to eligible members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard. Tuition assistance programs provide assistance of 75 percent to 100 percent of allowable tuition costs, depending on the branch of service.
Military tuition assistance verification forms are obtained from your military education office. You will need to provide the course codes, class name, and tuition costs per class to complete the form. Once a pre-approved tuition assistance verification form is obtained, provide a copy of that form to our Financial Aid Department.
If you are using military tuition assistance resources you must provide completed verification forms.
You may also be qualified for GI Bill funding to cover tuition costs not already covered by TA. In all cases, eligibility for military benefits is dependent on your completion of application requirements as administered by your branch of the armed forces.
