Military Benefits at the College of Graduate and Professional Education
The College of Graduate and Professional Education (CGPE) is pleased to offer military members and their families an opportunity to further their education and enhance their careers through professional education.
Active, Discharged, and Retired Military
If you’re an active-duty service member or veteran, a member of the National Guard or Reserves, or a qualified survivor or dependent, you may qualify for military education benefits. These benefits may provide reimbursement for our certificate programs, based upon GI Bill® coverage and length of service. Funding is available for classroom-based professional education programs only (see below for other financial aid opportunities). Fully online programs are not eligible. Please call us at 470-578-6765 (option 1) for questions about course eligibility.
How to Enroll
- Visit va.gov/education or call 1-888-GIBILL1 to apply for your benefits. Once you have been issued a Certificate of Eligibility by the VA, please complete our VA Information Form.
- Email the form as an attachment to our Registration Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If you have questions, please call us at 470-578-6765 and select option 1.
If you are not eligible for VA Education Benefits or are interested in a fully online professional education course, we are proud to offer a 10% military discount to active-duty and veteran service members on all of our courses. (This discount cannot be used for the Pedorthist Certificate or combined with VA Education Benefits or other discounts.)

Our Military Kids supports military children (ages 3 – 18) by funding sports, arts, and other extracurricular activities while a parent is deployed with the National Guard, the Reserve, or recovering from severe injuries sustained in a post-9/11 overseas mission.
