Military Students

John Wood offers a dedicated military and veterans’ specialist and admissions and advising team to help you.


Starting spring semester 2022, students using Post-9/11 GI Bill® 好处 will be required to verify their enrollment at the end of each month. Failure to verify for two consecutive months will interrupt the Monthly Housing Allowance (MHA) and/or kicker payments.  请浏览 enrollment verification webpage 从美国退伍军人事务部获取更多信息.

A simple and convenient verification option is to sign up for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) text message verification.
