Military Service Education Assistance

Veterans' Benefits.The U.S. Veterans Administration operates various education assistance programs for eligible veterans, war orphans, surviving spouse or child of any veteran killed while on duty with the Armed Forces, disabled veterans, dependents of a veteran with service-related total disability, and certain members of the selected reserve. Inquiries concerning eligibility may be directed to the Veterans Administration office in Newark, New Jersey (800/242-5867) or to the veterans coordinator on each campus. For New Brunswick, the number is 732/445-4112.

Veterans and others mentioned above who plan to make use of veterans' education benefits should initially present the Veterans Administration Certificate of Eligibility Form(s) and/or discharge papers (certified copy of the DD214) when registering for courses. If applying for other financial aid with the university, veterans must report the fact that they will receive veterans` education benefits to the Office of Financial Aid.

Veterans planning to train under Chapter 32 VEAP, Chapter 30 of the New (Montgomery) GI Bill of 1984, or Chapter 1606 for Reservists, are required by the university to pay cash for tuition, fees, books, and supplies when due. Veterans, in turn, receive an allowance for each month of schooling based upon credits and the number of dependents.

No veteran may officially withdraw from a course (or courses) without prior approval from the college dean of academic affairs and dean of students offices. All withdrawalrequests must be submitted in writing. The date of official withdrawal will be the determining date for changes in benefits. Failure to comply with the official college withdrawal procedure may affect both future and prior benefit payments. Any change in schedule must also be reported to the appropriate certifying official (college registrar).

Army and Air Force ROTC Scholarships. Competitive scholarships are made directly to students by the Army and the Air Force in accordance with Department of Defense policies. The university is precluded from providinginstitutional support to ROTC scholarships because Department of Defense policies discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation, which contradicts university policy.

Army scholarships provide full tuition and fees and a $205 per term flat rate allowance for textbooks. Air Force scholarships cover tuition, fees, and textbook costs up to $8,000 per year. Successful Army and Air Force scholarship winners also receive a $150 per month personal allowance during the academic year.

To apply, students may contact the Army or Air Force ROTC departments on the New Brunswick/Piscataway campus or ROTC representatives at the Newark or Camden campuses.
