    (1) Notwithstanding any other provision of this chapter, beginning on August 1, 2019, a State approving agency, or the Secretary when acting in the role of the State approving agency, shall disapprove a course of education provided by an educational institution that has in effect a policy that is inconsistent with any of the following:

  • Active Duty Veterans

    Eligibility for education benefits via the Department of Veterans Affairs may provide financial support during your collegiate experience. The Post-9/11 GI Bill® could, potentially, cover educational and housing expenses for individuals with an Honorable Discharge, at least 90 days service post-September 10, 2001 or those discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days.

  • Spouse or child of a service member?

    If you are the spouse/child of a service member, serving on Title 10 orders, you may be eligible for financial assistance from the Department of Defense, for educational expenses.

    If you are the spouse/child of a service member, you may be eligible to transfer the service member’s benefits to you. Transfer of benefits will need to be done via the VA through the service member.

  • VA Education Benefits for Survivors or Dependents
  • Currently serving?

    You may be eligible for educational funding through the Department of Defense Tuition Assistance program. This is a benefit that will need to process through your chain of command not via The University of Tulsa.

  • Veteran Readiness and Employment (Chapter 31 benefits)

    Veteran Readiness and Employment (Ch. 31), previously Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment, is a program that assists with exploration of employment options and addresses training needs for those with service-connected disabilities that limit the ability to or completely prevents you from working.

    In some cases, family members may also qualify for certain benefits via this program.
