Benefits

La Roche University invites all military, veterans and their dependents to meet with us to discuss their educational interests. La Roche University is proud to be selected as a military-friendly college by GI JOBS magazine. In addition, we participate in every GI Education Benefit program, to include the more recent Post 9-11 GI Bill, the Yellow Ribbon Program. It is our hope that through our staff we can streamline the experience of applying to La Roche University and accessing military educational benefits. This website is dedicated to pulling together the various resources and services that military personnel may be interested in as they consider La Roche University.

To learn more about the various educational benefits and to apply for your post 911 GI Bill Benefits go to www.gibill.va.gov.

If you are currently receiving VA educational benefits and anticipate transferring to La Roche University you need to complete the VA Form 1995 - Request for Change of Program or Place of Training Form.

There are a few external web sites that provide additional information about GI Benefits:
