Military Financial Aid

Our financial advisors understand financial aid for military students, and they will walk you through the process of applying for specific military financial aid by answering any questions you may have.

We know that paying for college can be difficult, but we are here to help you every step of the way. Even after you graduate from Harrison College, we will assist you with loan repayment plans. To speak with a financial aid analyst who can answer your questions, call 888.544.4422.

Harrison accepts military benefits from every branch of the armed forces. If you are a veteran or currently active in the military, you may access general information about your benefits by calling 888.GIBILL.1 (888.442.4551) or visiting the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Generally, the first step to applying for benefits is filling out a Form 22-1990. However, there may be a few other forms that will need to be filled out, so it is strongly suggested that you call or e-mail Veterans Affairs to find out specifically which steps to take. You can also reach out to a member of our Financial Aid team at the campus you will be attending, and a representative will assist you.

If you have a service-connected disability, you may be eligible for vocational rehabilitation benefits. You may get additional information about vocational rehabilitation entitlements by calling 800.827.1000 or visiting

Military Tuition Assistance (TA)

Currently, the military services pay tuition assistance (TA) at the rate of 100 percent with a $165 cap per quarter hour and a $4,500 annual limit. If you elect to use military tuition assistance, you should start with your local installation’s education office where you will receive help in developing an education plan. This is usually required before you may apply for military tuition assistance. Then you must submit the completed authorization form to your Harrison College Financial Aid Analyst.
