If you have exhausted your service branch Tuition Assistance/VA benefits, your semester charges exceed eligible military benefits, or otherwise need financial assistance beyond the TA/VA benefits you receive, you may be eligible for additional federal or state aid in the form of grants (i.e. Pell) or student loans. Completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will determine your eligibility for these programs.
