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.
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 withdrawal requests 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.
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 providing institutional 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.
students may contact the Army or Air Force ROTC departments on the New
Brunswick/Piscataway campus or ROTC representatives at the Newark or
