Stillman Celebrating Veterans Day

VETERANS Resource Center

Mission Statement

The Stillman College Veterans Resource Center offers an array of services and resources to student veterans and their dependents. Staff at the VRC will help guide prospective students through the admissions process, identify aid options from the VA and help determine eligibility, and work with veterans to certify aid semester to semester. The VRC will also help connect veterans with VA healthcare providers in the Tuscaloosa area.


Federal Benefits

Federal benefits for veterans and their dependents are assigned by the VA. While some VA educational benefits programs are commonly used by many veterans, such as the Post-9/11 GI Bill® and the Reserve Educational Assistance Program, eligibility criteria and benefits access of the programs can be complex. Ultimately, eligibility for aid will be determined by the VA.
