Rutgers students and faculty, along with alumni and staff, have served in the U.S. military since the American Revolution.

Rutgers welcomes National Guard and Reserve members and veterans returning from service from around the world. You, and those who will come home in the years ahead, have earned our respect, admiration, and support as you begin a new phase of your lives.

Financing Your Education

There are programs, financial aid, and scholarships that help veterans, active duty service members, and eligible dependents foot the bill for a higher education.

Which program is right for you? That depends on your personal circumstance, so it's up to you to get information to weigh your decision carefully.
