Service Members

Concordia University Texas is grateful, proud and supportive of those who have served or continue to serve in the military. For those looking to start or continue their education, we have a variety of options to assist with that process.

There are multiple financing options available to assist veterans and their dependents in pursuing their college education. Concordia University Texas accepts most VA educational benefits and is a participant in the Yellow Ribbon program. We do not accept the Hazelwood Act as these benefits are only eligible at public institutions.

In order for active military personnel to take advantage of their benefits, they must contact their local Veteran Affairs representative. Veterans must apply for their benefits on the Department of Veteran Affairs website. For more information on VA educational benefits, the Yellow Ribbon Program and steps to accessing your benefits, please visit the Department of Veteran Affairs website.

Once you've applied for benefits through the VA site, the Department of Veteran Affairs will notify you of your eligibility. Concordia will need a copy of your Certificate of Eligibility and your DD-214 so that we can certify your attendance with the VA once you are registered.

VA Certification Request Form

In the meantime, your admissions counselor can help you proceed through the regular admissions process in accordance with your program of interest. Once you have been officially accepted to Concordia University, the University will process the paperwork concerning your financial benefits.

What Our Students Say

Drew Marshall

"I was looking for a college that would challenge me while also making me feel like my presence mattered. I didn’t want to be just another number in the system. The small class sizes at Concordia allowed me to connect with the professors on both an academic and personal level. Since I transferred here, my Concordia experience has been phenomenal. I have made lifelong friends and learned so much about myself as a person and as a leader. Coming to Concordia from the Marine Corps, one of the biggest things I was looking for was the opportunity to be part of a community. I have found a wonderful community here of driven people who support each other."

- Drew Marshall, Class of 2023, Pre-Nursing, Marine Corps Reserve
