Veteran's Benefits

Financial aid is available to veterans and their families through the G.I. Bill®, War Orphans Educational Law, and other programs. Widows and children of deceased veterans as well as spouses and children of totally disabled veterans are eligible for educational benefits. Further information can be secured from your local Veterans Administration Office. Students eligible to receive veterans benefits should complete the necessary forms in the Registrar's Office to certify enrollment to the Veterans Administration. Those expecting government checks are reminded that this aid may not be available for two to three months following application.

Information about Veteran's Benefits is handled by Student Financial Services. Please contact SFS at sfs@wheaton.edu.
