If you’re a veteran who’s going back to school, or still active duty looking to get your degree, there are a lot of considerations in your choice of schools. Maybe you want to save time and money by receiving credit for your military experience, or to avoid out-of-pocket costs as much as possible.  That’s why we’ve compiled the colleges with the best veteran and military programs to help you succeed. Colleges are often ranked, most famously by US News & World Report.  Many educational opportunities in Military Friendly Colleges available to you.

Military tuition assistance covers college costs for active duty troops, and the generous Post-9/11 GI Bill is there for vets. Together, they can help you earn a degree without piling up tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in student loan debt, as your civilian counterparts often do.

So how do you make the most of these benefits? The first step is picking the right school. Feel free to use our Online College Tool as your first step.

About GI Bill Benefits

GI Bill benefits help you pay for college, graduate school, and training programs. Since 1944, the GI Bill has helped qualifying Veterans and their family members get money to cover all or some of the costs for school or training. Learn more about GI Bill benefits below—and how to apply for them.

The GI Bill Comparison Tool and Veterans Service Organizations can help you explore options and find out what benefits you can get. Find a Veterans service organization.
