The Registrar serves as the Veterans Affairs (VA) certifying official for Lincoln College-Normal. Student veterans and certain dependents may receive assistance with matters relating to educational benefits and payments. Veterans at Lincoln College are eligible to receive funding through the GI Bill; the Illinois Veteran’s Grant applies only to public colleges and universities. Veterans must submit a copy of their DD 214 to the Registrar. Inquiries may be made by contacting the Registrar’s Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to receive full benefits, a veteran must maintain full-time status by enrolling for a minimum of 12 credit hours each semester. Nine credit hours will be considered 3/4 time, and six credit hours will be considered 1/2 time. Veterans enrolled for less than six hours will receive only tuition and fee allowances. Lincoln College-Normal will notify the VA immediately of any change in student status.
Veterans may receive physical education credit for military service. The number of credit hours granted ranges from one to four hours, based on the years of active service.
