Military

Be sure to let your college counselors know that you served in the Armed Forces.


Education is one of the greatest benefits of serving in the Armed Forces. As a servicemember, veteran, or family member, you have special opportunities that can help provide money for school, support, and ways to save both time and money.

The DoD, Department of Veterans Affairs and many states offer programs to help pay for college. These programs include up to $4,500 a year for Military Tuition Assistance and the GI Bill which can help cover expenses like tuition, fees, books, and living expenses.

In addition to the programs that provide Money for School, there are federal and state funded programs that offer support that can help you prepare for success and save time and money. The Defense Activity for Non–Tradition Education Support (DANTES) offers servicemembers the opportunity to take college level equivalency exams that can help you avoid taking classes in subjects you already know :this can save you time and money while you pursue your education. DANTES can also you help identify the ’distance learning’ programs and classes that can help you earn your degree outside the classroom.


As a servicemember or veteran you have years of experience and training that can be counted toward college credit. The American Council on Education (ACE) provides the guidance and support to help you and the school you plan to attend figure out how much college credit you have earned
