Veterans Education Grant

The Veterans Education (VetEd) grant program provides a reimbursement grant for tuition and fees following successful course completion.

Eligible Wisconsin Veterans who have not yet been awarded a bachelor's degree may use VetEd to pursue an education up to a bachelor's degree at an eligible college. Reimbursement is currently up to 100% of the tuition and fees not covered by other grants, scholarships, or remissions. Veterans must receive a 2.0 in the semester for which reimbursement is requested to be eligible for reimbursement.  

Time Limitations - Veterans may use VetEd for full-time or part-time study up to their 10-year anniversary of leaving active duty (delimiting date). Once a veteran reaches the 10-year delimiting date, he or she may be enrolled as a full-time student, but will be reimbursed up to eleven credits for academic periods.

Income Limitations – To be eligible for VetEd, the veteran's household income must be below $50,000 plus $1,000 for each dependent in excess of two dependents.

Application Process 

Veterans can apply online. The application must be received by the state department no later than 60 days after the start of the semester for which the reimbursement is being sought, or the grant will be denied.  

Payment Information 

Once final grades are turned in and the School Veterans Official has reviewed and submitted the application to WDVA, checks are normally issued within 5-10 business days—if the application is complete.
