Navigating the Education Benefit Process

Making sense of your education benefits as an active duty, reserve, or veteran member of the U.S. military can be a daunting task. Determining your benefits eligibility from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) begins with visiting the VA website. Our admissions advisors are also here to provide resources and help guide you along the way.

Many Ways to Finance Your Education

Several financing options are available including federal loans, tuition assistance programs and veterans benefits such as the Montgomery GI Bill® and the Yellow Ribbon Program.
