Currently, veterans studying at NJIT, who are eligible for benefits under the Post 9/11 GI Bill or the Montgomery GI Bill, can receive military tuition assistance through one of these programs. And, best of all, these VA benefits are an additional source of assistance most familiar to those attending college, which originates from monies from the US Department of Education after a simple processing of the individual's FAFSA documentation. This makes veterans eligible for more overall aid; in other words, it allows for greater financial assistance.
