Financial Aid

In the military, you have both a primary route to complete your mission or objective and a secondary route as a backup. This holds true with funding for your education.

Nearly 80 percent of those who join the military join for education benefits. Between the GI Bill ®, tuition assistance and state benefits, you may find that your education funding is covered. However, are you prepared if there are delays in benefits, funding gaps, or unexpected education expenses? A valuable secondary route starts by completing your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is required to be filled out each year and used to determine eligibility for grants, scholarships and student loans. While student loans have to be repaid, grants and scholarships typically do not and can help with extra education expenses.
