Veteran Educational Benefits (VA)
American Sentinel College of Nursing & Health Sciences at Post University is committed to solving financial challenges for our military students. Serving those who serve our country is a privilege, and we are honored to help you meet your educational goals.
Our military student scholarship program offers generous support for military members and their spouses. We understand that such assistance can make the difference in your ability to pursue your education. In addition to veterans benefits offered through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, students may be eligible to receive a military student scholarship.
Some general guidelines:
- Course terms are eight weeks in length and begin each month.
- Montgomery GI Bill® tuition benefits are paid directly to the student. However, Post 9/11 GI Bill® tuition benefits are paid directly to American Sentinel College of Nursing & Health Sciences at Post University
- VA benefits may be used in conjunction with company reimbursement as long as your employer is not the federal government. In addition, VA benefits may be used in conjunction with Federal Student Aid for which the student may be eligible.
Eligibility for VA Educational Benefits
Our Admissions Advisors are happy to help our military students through the admissions process, however, the Department of Veterans Affairs should always be your primary source of veteran benefit information. To determine your eligibility for VA educational benefits, visit the Department of Veterans Affairs website or call 800.827.1000 (U.S. only). All admissions requirements must be completed and the veteran must be a registered student at American Sentinel College of Nursing & Health Sciences at Post University before he or she will be certified for VA benefits.
