Financial Aid for Veterans
The United States Armed Services, both active duty and reserves, have developed programs to assist enlistees in obtaining a college education. Veterans and/or their dependents may be eligible to receive benefits for their education. Students should contact their area recruiter for additional information.
Veterans attending Aultman College may be eligible to receive benefits through the Department of Veteran Affairs when pursuing most degree programs. Each veteran has individual requirements for eligibility. For additional information, contact the Department of Veterans Affairs at 1-888-GIBILL-1 (1-888-442-4551) or visit their website at http://benefits.va.gov/gibill
The VA requires veterans receiving benefits to attend all scheduled class meetings. Failure to do so may result in the loss of benefits and payback of veterans benefits already received for the semester in question.
