Veterans

 


Veterans who have earned eligibility for educational benefits through active military, selective reserve or National Guard may receive federal and/or state veteran benefits. Spouses and dependents of veterans who have become totally disabled, M.I.A. or have died as a result of their military service may also qualify for federal and state veteran educational benefits.

Federal benefits include Montgomery GI Bill, Post 911 GI Bill, Reserve Educational Assistance Program (REAP), Post-Vietnam Era Veterans’ Education Assistance Program (VEAP), Survivors & Dependents Assistance, Disabled Veterans Training and the new Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP). State veterans benefits include the Wisconsin GI Bill and VetED Reimbursement Grant.

Veterans and their families who are receiving educational benefits are encouraged to apply for financial aid at www.fafsa.gov. Many veterans can receive further educational assistance in the form of tutoring, counseling and VA work-study programs through the US Veterans Administration.

If a student is receiving veterans’ educational benefits, it is their responsibility to notify the Financial Aid Office on their VA eligibility, course enrollment, and changes of their course enrollment or withdrawing from school.
