-Shania

“Every week, a Student Success Advisor checks up on me to make sure that everything is going smooth and is there for me if a need ever arises. They engage you and treat you as if they were your own family, because that's what we as veterans are: a family.”

How do I get a copy of my DD214?
+
Eligible veterans have access to a multitude of education benefits. However, to access them, they will need multiple copies of their form DD 214. The veteran should request a copy through Archives and note that the Member 4 copy, which shows the character of their discharge, is preferred for most educational purposes. Active Duty service members who do not have a DD214 can still submit an application through VonApp to apply for benefits. 

How do I get college credit for military training?
+
  1. Visit the appropriate link and follow the instructions for your branch of service
  2. Army/Navy/Marines/Coast Guard visit: https://jst.doded.mil/
  3. Air Force visit: http://www.airuniversity.af.mil/Barnes/CCAF/

What is the monthly BAH?
+
Eligible veterans may be able to receive a monthly housing allowance while they are in school. The most up-to-date requirements for housing benefits can be found here.

What does the average degree cost?
+
  1. Veterans may be able to cover up to 100% of their undergraduate tuition through a variety of sources based on their status. These sources include tuition assistance and veteran’s education benefits. Our university partners also offer discounts to Guild students and to members of the military who qualify.
  2. Thanks to discounts from our partners, most of the classes and degree programs at Guild are between $250 to $350 per credit. That means $3,000 to $3,500 per semester for undergraduate degrees, which is much lower than the national average. If you're not yet ready for a degree program, other semester-long classes and programs cost between $675 and $2,450. Graduate degrees are shorter (one to two years on average), but graduate classes cost more at $450 to $550 per credit. 
  3. Remember—those who have served often pay little to no tuition.
