An Admissions Counselor will be assigned to assist the veteran through the entire Admissions process at Robert Morris University.

Robert Morris students do not qualify for the IVG, Illinois Veterans Grant, whereby tuition is fully paid. This grant applies only to state colleges and universities, not private institutions.

All interested veterans must provide a copy of their DD214 and complete the VA form 22-1995 or 22-1990, if they attended college previously. Dependents of veterans should first speak with the University's VA representative to find out which documents are needed to determine eligibility.

Any previously enrolled veterans may apply to return to the college and will return in the same academic standing in which they left. Also, any veterans deployed while enrolled will have their tuition forgiven for the term in which they left. Returning veterans must also meet with the VA representative on campus and complete the appropriate forms to reactivate their benefits.
