Veterans Benefits

The Office of the Registrar acts as liaison between students and the Veterans Administration, the Wisconsin Department of Military Affairs and the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs. Students eligible to receive educational benefits under one of the various federal Veterans Administration programs and State of Wisconsin programs must, at the beginning of each term for which they are registered, complete and/or submit the Marquette Application for Certification of VA Educational Benefits. First time VA benefit applicants or transfer students may need to furnish additional documentation. For more information on how to apply for Veterans' educational benefits, visit the Marquette Central Veteran's Benefits website. Information or consultation regarding Veterans educational benefits is available at any time during regular Marquette Central office hours.

Marquette participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program, a Post-9/11 GI Bill®/Forever GI Bill® enhancement program for students who qualify for 100% of the Post-9/11 GI Bill®/Forever GI Bill®. This program allows institutions of higher learning in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the VA to fund some or part of the tuition expenses of these students beyond the Post-9/11 GI Bill®/Forever GI Bill® annual cap.

Federal Law requires that educational assistance benefits to Veterans and other eligible students be discontinued when these students cease to make satisfactory progress toward their degree objective. Individuals who wish to receive Veterans educational benefits must qualify and meet the published academic standards and requirements of the university in order to be certified for Veterans educational benefits. Only courses that apply to a degree program may be certified for VA educational benefits; and students must inform the Office of the Registrar of changes to their enrollment after certification is submitted for the term.
