Military Benefits & Veterans Resources

The Military Education Benefits Office helps military-connected students understand how to use military or VA education benefits at Georgetown. This office also provides estimated out-of-pocket expenses upon request, and can answer any questions about the monthly housing allowance (MHA), book and supply stipend, applying for VA Education Benefits, using military tuition assistance, using VR&E benefits, VA enrollment certifications, and billing-related questions.

Georgetown University’s Military and Veterans Resource Center connects military students and veterans with the resources they need to successfully navigate the military-to-civilian transition. This includes help with navigating the admissions process, applying for financial aid and U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs education benefits, academic assistance, and preparing to re-enter the workforce.

Military students and veterans enrolled in SCS programs might be able to apply military benefits to their tuition at Georgetown.
