Military Educational Benefits

Have you served your country through the US Armed Forces?

We are proud to offer a 10% military discount to active-duty and veteran service members on our classes and programs. This discount cannot be used for the Pedorthist Certificate or conference registrations or combined with VA Education Benefits, payment plans or other discounts. The service member will only need to present identification the first time the discount is used. The military discount is for the service member only.

VA Education Benefits

Active duty and honorably discharged members of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and National Guard may qualify for military education benefits. These benefits may provide reimbursement for certificate programs, based upon GI Bill coverage and length of service. Funding is available for classroom-based programs only and is not valid for online courses.

Post-9/11 GI Bill

Provides financial support for individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate service on or after September 11, 2001, or individuals discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days of that date. Benefits can also apply to those on active duty, their spouse and children.

Visit http://www.gibill.va.gov or call 1-888-GIBILL1 to apply.

Once a Certificate of Eligibility has been issued, contact Military Liaison Nora Felde at nfelde@kennesaw.edu or 470-578-3152.
