Military and veterans assistance

Detailed information about grants, scholarships and other financial assistance for members of the military and their families is available on the Federal Student Aid website.

Financial aid eligibility

In addition to any military benefits you receive, you may may qualify for assistance under Title IV. This includes federal grants, Federal Work-study, Federal Direct Loans, Federal Parent PLUS Loans, and Grad PLUS Loans. Federal loan  amounts are based on your enrollment status and other factors. To apply for federal grants and loans, you must file the annual Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Financial aid shopping sheet

The financial aid shopping sheet is a consumer tool that participating institutions use to notify students about their financial aid package. It is a standardized form designed to simplify the information that prospective students receive about costs and financial aid so they can easily compare institutions and make informed decisions about where to attend school.

You can view your financial aid shopping sheet at any time in Academica.

Education benefit programs

If you served on active duty, you might 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. You must have received an honorable discharge to be eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill.

If you are currently serving in the military, you may be eligible for funding offered through the Department of Defense Tuition Assistance program. Check your eligibility status and the amount for which you qualify with your service prior to enrolling.

If you are the spouse or child of a service member who is serving on active duty Title 10 orders in the pay grades of E1-E5, O1-O2 or W1-W2, you 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. You may also be eligible to transfer a service member’s Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits to you.
