Learn What You've Earned

As a veteran or veteran's dependent, you may be entitled to educational benefits.

You can use these benefits while pursuing a course of study at UW-Green Bay. In order to be eligible for full-time allotments, you must be enrolled for 12 credits in a semester, and 24 credits in the academic year. Summer session allotments are determined by class dates or length of class and number of credits.
