Note: In addition to applying for veterans educational benefits, our office recommends that all ISU students completing degrees (or pursing required teacher certifications), complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) by March 10 each year to ensure that they will be considered for all possible types of funding, including state and federal financial aid, loans, grants, and work-study programs.
This program provides up to 36 months of education benefits to eligible applicants.
To avoid a delay in acquiring your benefits, the process should begin 12 weeks before classes begin.
For instructions and on-line application, go to:
Montgomery GI Bill® Active Duty (MGIB-AD)
Department of Veterans Affairs
Upon receipt of your application, Veterans Affairs will issue a VA Claim Number. The benefit is paid to you. You are responsible for paying Indiana State University.
In order to receive veterans educational benefits, students must verify enrollment.
Students must report a change in major or program by contacting the Office of Registration and Records at (812) 237-2020.
Failure to report a change in major or program may result in delay or loss of payment of educational benefits.
