Veteran Educational Benefits

Western is committed to helping veterans and their dependents achieve academic success. Through coordinated efforts with resources across campus, we strive to simplify the process of receiving educational benefits.

Yellow Ribbon Institution

Western is a proud participant in the Yellow Ribbon program. Through this program, Western and the VA will partially or fully fund tuition and fee expenses that exceed the established thresholds under the Post-9/11 GI Bill.

Title 38 Compliance

Western students who are covered under Chapter 31 or 33 are not subject to late fees, disenrollment or other penalties if they are waiting on a payment from the VA.
