If you are eligible for prorated veterans’ benefits, you will receive significant assistance toward the cost of attendance. Depending upon your military benefits, you may receive a monthly housing allowance and a stipend for books and supplies. If you are eligible for full veterans’ benefits, the funds available to you under the Post-9/11 Veterans Education Assistance Act of 2008 (the GI Bill® and Yellow Ribbon program) will allow you to attend Adrian College tuition-free. More information on these benefits can be found at the Department of Veterans Affairs Education and Training webpage.
Application for Benefits under the GI Bill®
To apply for benefits, you must complete an initial application with the Department of Veterans Affairs. A person is usually eligible for 36 months of benefits. No one will receive more than 48 months of benefits. For details and necessary forms, please visit the Department of Veterans Affairs Education and Training webpage.
