Veterans

Milligan University is a veteran-friendly institution. The university allows for military transfer credit, flexibility on registration and withdrawals due to deployments, and payment deferments while awaiting properly applied-for educational benefits. Milligan also waives admission application fees for veterans and provides individual counseling during the application and admission process. Give us a call at 800.262.8337, and we’ll walk you through the admissions process.

The Registrar’s Office at Milligan University is pleased to help students who have served in the United States Armed Forces and now desire to attend college using their Montgomery GI Bill® or VA Vocational Rehabilitation educational benefits. We look forward to assisting you to reach your education goals as well as those of dependents and or spouses of deceased soldiers through Dependents Educational Assistance.


Steps to Apply

Milligan honors a rolling admission policy, which means the admission committee will consider applications throughout the year, as long as space is available. However, we encourage first time students to apply early (by February 1 for Fall) for maximum scholarship and financial aid consideration. Also please note there are some academic and scholarship programs with specific dates and deadlines.

Due to the COVID-19 situation, requesting official transcripts and test scores has been difficult for some students. We can use unofficial copies for admissions purposes. We will work with you individually to use whatever you can provide us at the moment. Contact your admissions recruiter or reach out to admissions@milligan.edu for assistance with transcripts and test scores.
