Veteran Benefits

Last Updated Oct 2013


As a veteran, you may be eligible to receive the following benefits from our College:

Tuition Waiver

You need to provide a CT driver’s license and a Member 4 copy of the DD-214 to OVA. The tuition waiver is available for fall and spring semesters credit courses only. You will be responsible for payment of college fees at the time of registration as well as all book charges.

National Guard Waiver 

You must first apply to the Commanding Officers at your unit, who will issue a Certificate of Eligibility to the College. You will be responsible for payment of college fees at the time of registration as well as all book charges. Guard waivers are available for fall and spring credit courses only.

GI Bill

As a veteran who has served at least 90 days of active duty (not including boot camp) and been honorably discharged, you are eligible for the GI Bill. Applications are available in OVA or you may apply online at www.gibill.va.gov. Once the application has been processed by the VA, you will receive a Certificate of Eligibility to submit to the OVA.
