Veterans Educational Benefits– The federal government provides monetary assistance to veteran students if they have a record of serving active duty for more than 180 days. Veterans are not limited to a specific field of study; it is unrestricted. The amount of monthly assistance provided depends on the veteran’s marital status (married or single) and enrollment status (full-time or part-time). Certification for benefits is completed by the Financial Aid Office. These benefits are administered by the Veterans Administration.
