Resources for Student Veterans


Many of Arizona College’s students have served their country proudly as members of the nation’s armed forces and have decided to continue in that spirit of service and pursue a challenging and rewarding career in healthcare.

Whether you’ve earned Montgomery GI Bill® Active Duty or Selected Reserve, Post 9/11 GI Bill®, Veterans Educational Assistance Program, or Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts (MyCAA) benefits, you can put these programs into action to help you receive a well-rounded education and hands-on training at Arizona College.

Eligible members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard may qualify for the Federal Military Tuition Assistance Program, as well as the Top-Up Program. With these programs, students could receive 100% federal tuition assistance for their military service.

Arizona College students can also apply their Montgomery GI® Bill-Active Duty or their Montgomery GI Bill®-Selected Reserve to their education costs. This program provides up to 36 months of educational benefits for military students.

Another program providing financial support for educational and housing costs is the Post-9/11 GI Bill®, which applies to those with at least 90 days of aggregate service after September 10, 2011, or individuals discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days.

Even those who are a spouse or dependent of a qualifying veteran may have educational benefits available to them. There are many military spouse and family educational assistance programs that include the Post-9/11 GI Bill® Transferability, MyCAA, state-provided educational benefits, private scholarship and grant opportunities, Army Family Education Programs, and more.

For more information about using your military education benefits for training at Arizona College for any diploma or degree programs, call (877) 759-5504 or contact Arizona College today.
