Veteran Resources

25 Nov 2013 3:26 PM | Anonymous

Financial aid offices around the country are becoming increasingly aware of the needs of our veterans. With the increase of veterans transitioning into higher education, we as financial aid administrators must be conscious of the unique needs of this student population. In order to better our customer service and provide the best care, below are a few resources for financial aid administrators to use to assist their veteran students. These resources reference various military aid options (including the GI Bill), financial literacy, financial counseling, FAFSA information and more!
