National Guard & Reserve

The National Guard or Reserve member is a special breed of American. In addition to a civilian life and career, they dedicate time to serve our beautiful country and they are also entitled to military tuition assistance and GI Bill benefits. For those wishing to further their education, students at Sullivan University receive college credit for military training according to the degree program by using the Joint Services Transcript system. We hope you will join the many other service members who have trusted Sullivan University with their education and career goals!   The below links were compiled to facilitate information about the claim process of educational benefits for veterans and tuition assistance to be used at Sullivan University:

Post-9/11 GI Bill versus Montgomery GI Bill (MGIB) You may be eligible for several types of VA education and training benefits, but there are many things to consider before you apply for a GI Bill program. For most participants, the Post-9/11 GI Bill is the best option. However, other students would benefit more from the Montgomery GI Bill. To maximize your educational benefits, please refer to the following Comparison Tool provided by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs to help make it easier to decide which education benefits are better for you. According to your service, you may qualify for the following benefits:

  Yellow Ribbon Program

Sullivan University participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program by contributing $8,500 for an unlimited number of students in all school divisions at all degree levels. Only veterans entitled to the maximum benefit rate, as determined by service requirements or their designated transferees, may receive this funding. Active duty servicemembers and their spouses are not eligible for this program. Child transferees of active duty servicemembers may be eligible if the servicemember is qualified at the 100 percent rate. Find out more information about the Yellow Ribbon Program.

Military Grant

Student veterans accepted to Sullivan University may use the Sullivan University Military Grant to defray school costs such as supplies, food, housing books, etc. Student veterans who do not have tuition 100% covered may qualify for a military grant. The exact grant amount will be determined by financial planning.
