Military & Veteran Benefits

Get assistance in applying for federal educational benefits

The Office of the Registrar acts as a liaison between the government and students who are receiving Veteran’s Affairs (VA) educational benefits. Only the VA determines if a student is eligible to receive educational benefits.

The University of Saint Joseph is approved for the training of military personnel, veterans, and for children of veterans under the appropriate chapter of Title 38, the United States code. To apply for educational benefits please contact the VA at 888-GIBILL-1 (888.442.4551). Or, visit their website.

The University will not charge VA students (Chapter 33 and 31) a late fee while awaiting tuition and fee funds from VA. The school may apply fees to VA students with eligibility less than 100%, prorated to the percentage of charges not covered by VA benefits.

Learn about program costs, and read more information about Financial Aid. Students receiving VA educational benefits may also receive federal financial aid. For more information on financial aid please the contact the department at 860.231.5223 or [email protected].
