Veterans' education benefits are available to eligible students who have served in the military, are on active duty, or are enlisted in the Reserves or National Guard. These benefits are also extended to dependents of veterans who were 100% disabled or died because of service.

These benefits are considered 'gift aid' because the money received generally does not need to be paid back. Eligibility is determined by many factors; we encourage you to determine if you qualify.

Benefits may include:


To be considered eligible for and qualify for benefits awarded by Penn College, you must be in one of the following military affiliations:

Active Service Member – any military member currently in an active duty or drilling reservist status in any branch of the uniformed services.

NOTE: Penn College requires that you show a valid military-issued ID card to verify active duty status.

Veteran – any person who served in any status with a branch of the uniformed services, and:

  • Has received a DD-214, Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty;
  • Where block 24 of your DD-214 (Character of Service Narrative) shows Honorable.

Dependent or family member – one who is entitled to VA educational benefits under Code of Federal Regulations, title 38, section 21 [Vocational Rehabilitation and Education (2011)].

NOTE: Penn College requires a "member 4" or long form copy to verify Veteran Military status. Contact the Coordinator of Veteran & Military Services for clarification about Character of Service Narratives.
