Veteran Financial Aid

Based on your affiliation with the military, you may be eligible for Veterans benefits.

Currently Serving

If you are currently serving in the military, you may be eligible for funding offered through the Department of Defense Tuition Assistance program. Check your eligibility with the VA to find out your status and the amount for which you qualify with your Service prior to enrolling.

Veterans

If you served on Active Duty, you might be eligible for education benefits offered by the Department of Veterans Affairs. The Post-9/11 GI Bill provides financial support for educational and housing expenses to individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate service after September 10, 2011, or individuals discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days. You must have received an honorable discharge to be eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill.

Wittenberg participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program which subsidizes tuition and fees not covered by the Post-9/11 Gill Bill benefits.

Pre-9/11 veterans may be entitled to educational funds paid under other veterans’ programs. To ascertain such matters as eligibility, exact benefit levels, and procedures, contact your regional VA representative and/or Lynn Thoma, Associate Director of Financial Aid, at 937-327-7318 or lthoma@wittenberg.edu.
