Let us help you obtain a high-quality Penn State education with the use of financial and educational benefits offered only to veterans and their dependents.
Financial Benefits for Veterans
If you are a veteran, active duty service member, or dependent of either, you may be eligible for education benefits offered by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
To determine your eligibility and get started in the educational benefit process, please visit the VA's informational website.
Veterans are encouraged to apply for financial aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid at www.fafsa.ed.gov
For more information about financial aid, please visit studentaid.psu.edu

Students are required to submit a Certification Request Form for EVERY semester they plan to use VA benefits. All sections must be completed and submitted AFTER registration.
IMPORTANT: You will need to either download and print out the Enrollment Certification Request Form or they are available at the Office of Student Aid, room 145. You must complete the form by filling in the appropriate information and SIGN the form. Once the form is completed, return it to Maryann Hubick in the Office of Student Aid , room 145 or mail to:

Educational Benefits for Veterans
At Penn State, veterans have the opportunity to schedule their courses before anyone else through priority registration.
Looking for the Yellow Ribbon?
A recent change in the law allows all veteran students to receive the Pennsylvania tuition rate. Penn State Lehigh Valley students do not need to utilize Yellow Ribbon.
