GET STARTED WITH YOUR MILITARY BENEFITS

At Summit College, our faculty and staff are proud to support military members, veterans, spouses, and dependents as they further their education. Veterans, survivors, or dependents may be eligible for benefits via the Veterans Administration, while active duty service members might be entitled to tuition assistance. Our Student Services Department is here to help you navigate the process and find the benefits to which you are entitled.

To use your military benefits at Summit College, you will need to complete a three-step process:

Apply for Admissions to Summit College. Check out our admissions requirements and request your joint service transcripts.

Apply for Military Benefits. To apply for your particular military benefit, you will need to submit an application through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The amount that you receive will be based on the type of training you pursue, the length of your service, college fund eligibility, and your category, among other factors.

Understand Your Responsibilities. To keep your benefits, you may have certain responsibilities, such as maintaining good academic standing or submitting your grades upon completion of your courses.

We are honored that you are considering Summit College as you begin your career climb. Call or stop by the Student Services Department to speak with the VA Certifying Official for more information about our military benefits.
