Military & Veterans

We proudly serve those who serve our country. U.S. military servicemen, servicewomen and their dependents can benefit from a variety of federal programs designed to make their transition to higher education as easy as possible.

Illinois College participates in the following federal programs for veterans:

  • Montgomery GI Bill® – Chapter 30 & Chapter 1606
  • Post-9/11 GI Bill – Chapter 33
  • Survivors’ and Dependents’ Educational Assistance (DEA) Program – Chapter 35

Illinois College is also a Yellow Ribbon School. As a Yellow Ribbon School, qualified veterans may receive additional funds from Illinois College and the Department of Veterans Affairs that cover tuition and fees.

Students enrolling at Illinois College may also be eligible to receive book allowance from the VA.
