Center for Military & Veteran Students

Eastern University values those who have served in the United States Armed Forces and have defended our nation's freedom. We seek to serve our military and veteran students by providing easy access to their veteran benefits, and helping them to acclimate to higher education and civilian life.

Why Military Students Succeed at Eastern


Eastern values your military service and provides special financial aid opportunities to military service-members, their spouses and dependents, and veterans. Reduced tuition is also available for students using Military Tuition Assistance. As a Yellow Ribbon Institution, Eastern also accepts all benefits administered by the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) including the Post 9/11 GI Bill® and Vocational Rehabilitation.
