Veterans Education Assistance Program (VEAP)
The VEAP program is an optional matching contribution fund for veterans who entered the service between Jan. 1, 1977 and June 30, 1985. The government will match any contributions veterans make from military pay. For full details and eligibility requirements click here.
Yellow Ribbon for Veterans
As a participant in the Yellow Ribbon Program, TUW works with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to help pay for educational expenses that may not be covered by the GI Bill. Veterans who have more than 36 months of aggregative service following 9/11 typically receive full imbursement for public, in-state tuition. However, private and out-of-state schools may require additional funding. TUW will provide a set monetary amount toward any excess tuition, which the VA will match. Participation in this program is limited. Apply today to make sure you are accepted!
