Military Service


Military service in the U.S. Armed Forces provides some of the greatest educational and professional benefits available. Here are just a few examples:

Educational Benefits
  • ROTC (Reserve Officers' Training Corps) Scholarships for a college education prior to service
  • Tuition assistance during service
  • Money for school expenses
  • The Tuition Top-Up Program (for sailors) for course-related expenses not covered by other programs
Professional Benefits
  • The ability to transition into a civilian career using your military occupational specialty
  • The Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) program, which offers non-military job opportunities to Army veterans who complete enlistment and training requirements
  • The Troops to Teachers program to help veterans interested in teaching become certified as elementary, secondary, or vo-tech school teachers


The benefits available to you depend on the branch you serve, the length of your tour of duty, and the type of discharge you receive.
