Federal Veteran Benefits

GI Bill Trademark

The Federal Department of Veterans Affairs offers many educational benefits for military service men and women, as well as dependents and military spouses. Southeastern Illinois College wants to help you with this decision-making process, along with the application procedures and eligibility requirements.  Our Veterans Coordinator and staff can help you navigate through the application process as well as better understand the various components of your benefits. Many veterans often qualify for more than one benefit. Before applying, it is important to know what you qualify for and which option is best for you. You may also use the GI Bill® Comparison Tool. Please note: If you are an Illinois veteran, the GI Bill® Comparison Tool will not take into consideration State of Illinois benefits.
