Veteran Student Aid Programs
Important news for veterans
Effective July 1, 2009, federal veterans educational benefits are not considered a resource in determining financial aid eligibility. This means that financial aid packages will not be reduced by the amount of your veteran’s benefits. This applies to all GI Bills for veterans, their spouses, and their dependents. If you are a veteran and need financial assistance, see specific veterans information below, or learn more about applying for other types of financial aid.
When applying for non-veteran student financial aid, U.S. military veterans and students who are active duty follow the same process as other undergraduate and graduate student applicants. This page lists Portland State's veteran programs, where to find instructions and who to contact for more information.
