Welcome, Veterans, Active Duty Service Members, and Families
To apply for education benefits:
- Apply online
- Visit ebenefits to apply for education benefits through Vonapp. This is the veteran online application. You can also use this link to manage your benefits if you have already applied through Vonapp.
- Once you have been admitted, take the following to the Office of the Registrar and Veteran Affairs (Obal Hall, 1st Floor, Lodi Campus):
- A copy of your certificate of eligibility (that you received through the Ebenefits website above)
- a copy of your DD-214
Once you are registered for class we will certify your enrollment into VA-ONCE. This allows the department of Veterans’ Affairs to know that you are enrolled and your education benefits will be started.
Felician University Military Grant*
Grant is available to all military veterans from any conflict era. Felician has designed a special grant for all veterans, active duty service members and their family members using transfer benefits, when enrolled in our bachelor completion programs. This grant is available in addition to military education benefits.
Proud members of Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC) Consortium.
Felician University will limit academic residency to twenty-five percent or less of the degree requirement for all degrees for active-duty servicemembers and their adult family members (spouse and university-age children). In addition, there are no “final year” or “final semester” residency requirements for active-duty servicemembers and their family members. Academic residency can be completed at any time while active-duty servicemembers and their family members are enrolled. Reservist and national Guardsmen on active-duty are covered in the same manner.
* Grant will not exceed the cost of attendance.
Fully Participating Yellow Ribbon Institution
The Post-911 G.I. bill provides veterans a tuition benefit equal to the highest in-state tuition rate at public institutions (please visit the VA website for rates). If a veteran meets certain requirements, they are eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program, and will receive additional benefits to help meet the tuition rates of participating private institutions. Felician University, as a Yellow Ribbon Participating Institution, has chosen to offer the highest possible contribution rate of 50%, with a matching contribution from the VA, and does not limit the number of veterans who can attend Felician under the Yellow Ribbon program. This means that veterans can attend Felician for no out-of-pocket cost if they meet the following criteria:
