The Office of Veterans Services provides a variety of financial aids to undergraduate and graduate students who qualify for veteran’s benefits.

In order to qualify for full subsistence, applicants who are undergraduates must enroll in a minimum of twelve semester hours in a regular semester and six semester hours in a summer session. A graduate student must enroll in a minimum of nine semester hours in a regular semester and five semester hours in a summer session. Regular attendance and satisfactory academic progress is required throughout the semester to remain eligible to receive benefits. Tutoring is available to qualified students through the Veterans Administration. Limited work study funds are available to veterans. Further information concerning veteran’s benefits may be obtained from:

TA Refund Policy Open Close

Military Tuition Assistance (TA) is awarded to the service member, under the assumption that you will attend school for the entire period for which the assistance is awarded.  When you withdraw or stop attending, you may no longer be eligible to receive the full amount of TA funds awarded.

To comply with the Department of Defense (DOD), the University will return any unearned TA funds based on a proportional basis through at least the 60% portion of the period for which the funds were awarded.  TA funds are earned proportionally during an enrollment period.  The return of any TA funds will be returned directly to the military service, not to the service member.

If you are unable to attend due to military service obligation the University will work to identify solutions that will not result in a student debt for the returned portion.  For more information regarding this policy contact the Business Office, 580-745-2173, Administration Building, Room 101.

Recruiting Policy Open Close

The University refrains from providing commission, bonus, or other incentive payment based directly or indirectly on securing enrollments or federal aid (including Tuition Assistance Funds) to any persons or entities engaged in any student recruiting, admission activities, or making decisions regarding the award of student financial assistance.

The University refrains from high pressure recruitment tactics such as making multiple unsolicited contacts (3 or more), including contacts by phone, email, or in-person, or engage in same-day recruitment and registration for the purpose of securing member enrollments.

Cohort Loan Default Rate Open Close
