Antioch University welcomes military 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 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 undergraduate and graduate degree programs in Business, Education, and Healthcare.
AU 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.
Antioch University provides specific support for AUO students in these areas.
Post-9/11 Yellow Ribbon Program
Antioch University is a full participant in the U.S. Department of Veterans’ Affairs Post-9/11 Yellow Ribbon Program. We’ll match dollar-for-dollar the VA Yellow Ribbon amount paid towards your tuition once you reach your annual VA tuition limit.
Other Benefits-Eligible Veterans and Dependents
We honor active duty and honorably discharged Chapters 30 and 33 benefits-eligible veterans and family members with a tuition discount when enrolled in an approved degree or academic certificate program. Benefits-eligible veterans with other VA entitlements also may qualify.
To determine your eligibility for Antioch University’s Veterans’ Benefits, submit your DD-214 and Certificate of Eligibility to the AUS VA Certifying Official in the Registrar’s Office. If transferring from another institution, submit also your VA form 22-1995. Until we confirm your eligibility, you are responsible for paying full tuition.
