At Hodges, we know how important it is for you to make the best use of your VA Benefits. We’re experienced in helping you manage the post-9/11 GI Bill® application process. Whether you are eligible for 100% benefits or a different benefit level, we are committed to helping you find as many funds as possible for your education. That’s why we also participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program offered by the Department of Veterans Affairs which helps bridge the gaps between the post-9/11 GI Bill® and needed financing for your higher education.
All active duty service members should speak with their Educational Service Officer or military counselor to receive approval before enrolling at Hodges University. HU admissions and financial aid counselors are also available to answer any questions you might have.
When you choose Hodges, you’ll receive a tuition discount of $100 per credit hour for veterans who are not eligible for VA education benefits or additional tuition discounts. Most veterans receive an educational benefit between 40 and 100 percent.
We also offer tuition discounts to active military. Ask us how you can receive up to $250 reduction per credit hour off our normal tuition rate.
Additionally, our skilled VSC Staff will work hard to help you identify the financial aid for which you qualify so that you can take the next step in achieving Your Success. We are one of a select number of universities that offer services for our military veterans, and we are proud to be here to serve you as you take the next step in your career path.
Tuition Assistance (TA) funds are a unique, distinct source of financial aid available to eligible Service members. TA benefits are applied to student accounts before any additional financial aid that the student is eligible to receive.
Students are also encouraged to apply for financial aid to determine what other sources they are eligible to receive. To obtain federal, state, and institutional financial aid (including many scholarships), complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). To apply for financial aid, you will need to create a Federal Student Aid ID or FSA ID at the FSAID website and submit the FAFSA at fafsa.ed.gov.
Don’t worry if Tuition Assistance or Financial Aid sounds confusing. Hodges’ Veterans Services Center Staff is here to assist you with your Tuition Assistance and will guide you through the process of funding your education. You can do this!
You can apply for Tuition Assistance online at the Air Force Virtual Education Center. You must create a user name and password before accessing the online TA request.
After your request is approved, you will receive notification of approved TA form. The approved form will have both of the approved signatures. Finally, you need to send a copy of the approved TA form to the Cashier’s Office.Apply For Air Force Tuition Assistance
