Funding for Veterans

Post 9/11 GI Bill
Veterans should fully explore the new G.I. benefits as outlined on the G.I. Bill website. Eligible veterans may receive up to:

  • Partial tuition benefit equal to the cost of the highest cost undergraduate degree program in the state.
  • Monthly living allowance based on the zip code where the school is located.
  • $1,000 annual book and supply allowance.


Survivors' and Dependents' Educational Assistance Program (DEAP)
DEAP provides education and training opportunities to eligible dependents of veterans who are permanently disabled due to a service-related condition, or who died while on active duty as the result of a service-related condition. The program offers up to 45 months of education benefits. These benefits may be used for degree and certificate programs, apprenticeship, and on-the-job training. If you are a spouse, you may take a correspondence course. Remedial, deficiency, and refresher courses may be approved under certain circumstances.


Montgomery G.I. Bill
Much like the old G.I. Bill, the Montgomery G.I. Bill is intended for veterans who entered the service after July 1, 1985, served two years of continuous active duty, accepted a $100-a-month reduction in their military pay for the first twelve months of service, and received an honorable discharge. The monthly rate depends on the veteran's length of active duty, service in the Selective Reserve, or service in the National Guard. The benefits entitlement period is 36 months of full-time enrollment or part-time equivalent in a graduate program.
