Grand Canyon University (GCU) is a military-friendly university and a proud participant in many Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits, including the Yellow Ribbon program. Our goal is to help you successfully apply your benefits and transfer your experience and previous college credits to your degree program at GCU. To help you, we have compiled a list of military FAQs so that you can get familiar with the benefits process. If you have additional questions after browsing through the ones below, contact a military university counselor at 855-GCU-LOPE.
Is an online program considered full-time?
Yes, in regards to your financial aid tuition benefit. In regards to a chapter benefit, this can vary based on the program of study. Speak with a military university counselor by calling 855-GCU-LOPE to discuss your specific degree program and benefits.
Do military spouses get tuition assistance (TA)?
Military spouses are not eligible for TA. Service members may transfer their GI Bill® benefits to spouses under certain conditions. We do offer spouses of active service members the same cost per credit hour as the active service member, regardless of the spouse's method of payment.
Can I apply for financial aid in addition to using my VA benefits?
You can apply for financial aid even if you are using your VA benefits. By filling out the FASFA you may find that you are eligible for loans in addition to using your benefits.
How is certification of my benefits handled?
Certification is submitted on a course-by-course basis once a student posts attendance into each course. You can email email@example.com for more information on this topic.
