Antioch University Santa Barbara welcomes veterans and military-connected students to our campus. We are deeply grateful to those who have served our country in war and peace and honored to have them join our military friendly Antioch community.
At Antioch you can use your past experiences as a leader to work on behalf of others to promote a more just and sustainable world. We are dedicated to making education more accessible for our nation’s veterans and their dependents. We have a rich history of providing educational opportunities to veterans through our undergraduate and graduate degree programs. AUSB is committed to work with each individual veteran to ensure that you find the program that will be the best fit for your educational goals and aspirations.
We provide full-spectrum (military-to-civilian career) navigation and offer individualized and flexible services to help you earn your degree.
- VA Benefits, tuition assistance and financial aid counseling
We provide one-on-one GI Bill® assistance to student veterans and tuition assistance guidance for active duty military. We are subject matter experts in all of your financial aid benefits and needs. GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government Web site at http://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill.
- Acceptance of credits for Joint Services Transcript
We ensure you are getting your maximum amount of college credits for your military training and occupations. In addition, we offer other credit for prior learning as well as easy transfer of credits earned at other accredited institutions
- Career Counseling and Employment Services
We offer a broad range of assistance designed to provide the best opportunity for career employment upon graduation. We help research and match labor market indicators that best correspond with learned academic skills, work experience, and personal attributes; resume writing; and developing interview techniques. This resource may be especially lucrative for veterans seeking to translate military job experience to the civilian workforce.
In accordance with our legacy of service and social responsibility, Antioch University Santa Barbara is proud to participate in the Yellow Ribbon GI Bill® Education Enhancement Program, also known as the Yellow Ribbon Program, an initiative established by the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. The program will make additional funds available for student-veterans’ education through direct tuition grants, without an additional charge to their GI Bill® entitlement. We are pleased to honor U.S. veterans by helping financially support their education.
How It Works
Through the post 9/11 GI Bill®, significant undergraduate and graduate grant money is offered through AUSB to help fund tuition costs at AUSB.
Because AUSB gives credit for military training and experience and the ability to transfer up to 80 college credits for the BA Program, you can earn your degree for little or no cost (applies to the BA program only). This program has open enrollment and is not limited to any maximum number of students. We look forward to hearing from you!
