Concordia University Wisconsin is celebrating a recent bill that extends GI bill benefits to private and independent universities throughout the state.
TMJ4 stopped by the university on Thursday to speak to student-veteran Moriah White, who will not only benefit from the bill herself, her three young boys will as well.
In addition, Concordia announced yesterday a new scholarship for veterans and their dependents. Those who have exhausted all other veteran education benefits, or are ineligible for them, could be eligible to receive $150 toward any 3-credit adult accelerated undergraduate course or $200 toward any 3-credit eligible graduate course.
Concordia has a history of serving veterans in myriad ways:
- It was the first university to form a Veterans Post on campus.
- It offers more military transcript transfer credits than any other school in the state.
- It is a Yellow Ribbon School, which helps fund tuition beyond the yearly federal funding tuition cap.
- It is a three-time Military Friendly School.
