Veterans

UIS is committed to serving veterans and their families.  Veterans are strongly encouraged to explore the following resources.

Academic Credit

Our military veterans may be eligible to receive credit for military training. UIS follows ACE recommendations for awarding academic credit. Veterans can also receive an application fee waiver by submitting their DD-214 with their application for admission.

In-state Tuition

On August 12, 2013, Illinois State Gov. Pat Quinn signed into law House Bill 2353 (Public Act 98-0306), “Higher Ed-Military-Tuition,” which grants state tuition residency to student veterans using the Post-9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33), allowing them to qualify for in-state tuition. This is intended to bring the actual assessed tuition at Illinois public institutions in line with the maximum benefits offered under the Post-9/11 GI Bill to reduce the likelihood that recipients need to supplement their benefits in order to cover the cost of tuition and fees.  For more information, please visit the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs website.
