All nine of our partner universities are designated military friendly by Governor John Bel Edwards. Each offer military members and veterans a student-centered environment to assist them in completing their educational goals. Each university houses an Office of Veterans Affairs to assist qualifying students in obtaining educational benefits.
Veterans and service members have access to unique financial aid opportunities.
The amount of financial aid you qualify for is dependent on the nature of your military service. Some service members may qualify for a percentage of their educational expenses to be covered, while others qualify for all of their expenses to be paid. If you are fully qualified, it means the GI Bill will cover all tuition and expenses. GI Bill and Post 9/11 GI Bill: Determining Qualification
If you are still serving in active duty or currently serving in the reserves, you may be able to pay for classes with Education assistance. About Tuition Assistance by Military Branch.
You can qualify for Federal Pell Grants independent of your eligibility for Veteran Benefits. In fact, almost everyone is eligible for some type of federal student aid. Close to 60% of adults attending LA schools receive federal aid from the government in the form of Pell Grants. Students who demonstrate need can receive up to $5730 per year in federal aid.
