Columbia, Mo. (PRWEB) February 19, 2014
Columbia College is pleased to announce that it will waive application fees for veteran students starting with the March Session, which begins March 17. The fee waiver is available to new veteran students enrolling in undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
“As an institution, we pride ourselves on helping servicemembers and veterans further their educational goals,” said Mike Lederle, assistant dean for Military and Federal Programs at Columbia College. “Lifelong learning is critical for our veterans and their families, and waiving the application fee allows them to take the first step toward achieving their educational goals.”
To be eligible, new veteran students need to have been honorably discharged and must provide their DD214, DD215, NGB22 or NGB23 to verify veteran status.
More than 25 percent of Columbia College students either are servicemembers, veterans or their dependents. The college has been named “best for vets” by Military Times and “military friendly” by Military Advanced Education.
