Veteran and Employee Benefits


The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs oversees benefits and services provided to veterans and their families.

The VA can help you cover the cost of furthering your education and skills through benefit programs that may pay tuition, housing, training, and other costs. Service members and Veterans are eligible for many VA-approved education benefits. The VA offers a variety of benefits and services to spouses, children, and parents of Service members or Veterans who are deceased or permanently disabled by a service-connected disability.

See Shepherd for more information.


Employers may offer financial aid opportunities for graduate school. Students should check with their employer for possible assistance in covering their education expenses. Tuition reimbursement programs, scholarships, or other financial aid opportunities may be offered by your employer.
