Veterans

Veterans of the US Armed Services can benefit from a variety of ways to help pay for college as well as specific support services at many colleges.

 

BEFORE GOING

 

Nonresident In-State Tuition

Veterans attending undergraduate programs at Oregon public colleges and universities pay in-state tuition, even when they aren’t yet permanent residents of the state. Graduate students pay reduced out-of-state tuition. Contact a college’s financial aid office for more information.

Voyager Tuition Assistance

Members of the Oregon National Guard or Reserves who served as active duty personnel in a combat zone on or after 9/11 may receive additional funds to pay for tuition and mandatory fees beyond their federal military benefits. Contact a college’s financial aid office for more information.

Statewide Apprenticeships

Veterans benefits can often be used for apprenticeship programs offered through the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries. When an apprenticeship site doesn’t have an approved program, veterans can help establish one by contacting the Apprenticeship and Training Division.
