At Wilson College, we value the men and women who bravely volunteer to serve in today's military and defend the freedoms we enjoy. We welcome you to explore the many high-quality educational opportunities we provide. Many veterans of the armed services are eligible to receive financial assistance through the Veterans Administration. In addition, new G.I. Bill implementation affords higher education opportunities for more veterans than ever before.
Military veterans, active-duty personnel, dependents of disabled veterans, National Guard and Reservists may receive educational benefits at Wilson College. Federal VA education benefits as well as State Grant programs are available to part-time and full-time students.

Yellow Ribbon Program
The VA has approved Wilson's participation in the Yellow Ribbon program. Under this program, participating schools pay the portion of the tutiton that exceeds the amount the Post-9/11 GI Bill covers and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) matches the school's contribution - often eliminating all costs to military students who have 100% eligibility. Students are also eligible for a housing and book allowance through the GI Bill. The maximum tuition and fees paid by the VA for 2016-17 will be $21,970.46. Wilson College,along with the VA, will pay the balance of the tuition and fees charged for the academic year. Students who are enrolled more than half-time and are eligible for 100% benefits may receive $1410 each month for housing. Students are also eligible for up to $1000 towards books.
