As an Active Duty or Military Veteran, you may be eligible for educational benefits through numerous GI Bill programs. Advanced Career Institute is approved for participation in various funding programs offered through the Veterans Administration for active service members, reservists, veterans, dependents, and spouses under the following programs:

If you have at least 90 days of aggregate active duty service after Sept. 10, 2001, and are still on active duty, or if you are an honorably discharged Veteran or were discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days, you may be eligible for this VA-administered program.
