If you are currently serving in the military, have served in the past, or are a dependent of someone who has, you may be eligible to receive financial assistance from the Department of Veterans Affairs (V.A.). Northland College actively assists eligible students with applying their educational benefits towards a degree.
Veterans who are Wisconsin residents may also be eligible to participate in the Vet Ed reimbursement program offered through the state of WI Department of Veterans Affairs. The Wisconsin G.I. Bill Tuition Remission Program cannot be used at Northland.
The V.A. School Certifying Official at Northland does not make determinations of eligibility, nor is she able to discuss specific remuneration amounts with eligible students. Please contact your V.A. representative with eligibility questions. If you are not sure of who your V.A. representative is, you can obtain further information by calling (888) GI-BILL-1 (1-888-442-4551) or visit Federal G.I. Bill.
