Education Benefits

Military-Connected Education Benefits

Whether you are currently serving or separated from the service, you may be eligible for certain education benefits. Education benefits will vary depending on your branch of service, length and type of service, as well as, current military status. Some examples of military education benefits are the GI Bill®, Federal Tuition Assistance, State Tuition Assistance and MN GI Bill®. 

It is also recommended that all students complete a FAFSA for possible additional financial aid. Federal Tuition Assistance and State Tuition Reimbursement are branch-specific benefits. The MN GI Bill® is based on financial need. FAFSA can be used in conjunction with your military education benefits.

Eligibility for multiple chapters of the GI Bill® are dependent on individual circumstances. While you are the only person who can choose which program meets your needs, meeting with the Higher Education Veterans Program Regional Coordinator can help you to better understand your options.
