If you have served the United States as a member of the military, you could be eligible to receive education benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs. MACU's Office of Veterans Services exists to help current and former members of the armed forces to utilize thoe benefits in conjunction with the VA.
MACU is committed to recognizing active duty service members, veterans and their family members. We are a proud participant of the Post-9/11 GI Bill Yellow Ribbon Program. In addition, MACU has been consistently named a Military Friendly School by G.I. Jobs since 2011.
All of MACU's on-ground, online and combination degree programs are eligible to use with VA Educational Benefits. For specific information about how your VA Education Benefits will work in coordination with your educational goals, please contact our Student Veteran Advisor, LaHonda Touissant, at [email protected]
To learn more and begin your application process for VA Education Benefits, please click here.
If you have previously used VA Education Benefits at another institution, you must submit Change of Program/Place of Training documentation through the Department of Veterans Affairs website. You can access those forms here.
Every MACU student receiving VA Education Benefits must fill out, update and provide a copy of the SRA at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters along with their VA Educational Update. Please click here to download the SRA.
Your MACU Student Veteran Advisor will certify your benefits according to your enrollment and billed cost of tuition and required fees. This certification communicates your enrollment and expenses to the VA electronically so they can award your eligible benefits. Please expect a 2-10 week time frame for all benefits to be received.
Please note: If you receive Chapter 30 or 1606, you must complete a Student Verification of Enrollment on the last day of the month. This can be done through the W.A.V.E. portal or by calling 1-877-823-2378.
To ensure timely awarding of your VA Education Benefits, your MACU Student Veteran Advisor will certify your benefits by term or class (CAGS students). Please notify the MACU Office of Veterans Services of all enrollment changes with as much advance notice as is possible. All class registrations, drops and program changes must be communicated with the MACU Office of Veterans Services immediately.
MACU participates in th Department of Defense Tuition Assistance programs. We serve as a liaison to the DoD in processing tuition assistance and other military educational benefits. Tuition assistance can cover a significant portion of your tuition for a Bachelor's or Master's degree for eligible active duty, reserve and National Guard personnel. Tuition assistance can help make a college education more affordable for you and your family!
Before enrolling in your classes, you may be required to develop an education plan or complete Tuition Assistance orientation. Please keep the following in mind when you apply for enrollment:
The Top-up program allows funds from the Montgomery GI Bill - Active Duty or the Post-9/11 GI Bill to be used for tuition and fees for high-cost courses not fully covered by Tuition Assistance funds.
Aside from using the MGIB-AD or Post-9/11 GI Bill for items such as tuition and fees not covered by Tuition Assistance, there are other funding opportunities available to service members, including the following:
VA Education Hotline: 1-888-442-4551
