Veterans Educational Services
The Georgia Perimeter College Veteran Affairs Office assists former service personnel and other students eligible for veterans’ educational benefits. The office provides counseling and advisement services as well as certifying enrollment with the Veterans Administration. Eligible students should be prepared to pay the initial costs for tuition and fees since payment of benefits do not begin until six to eight weeks after enrollment. Students may apply for financial aid to cover their tuition and fees, if eligible.
The new Post-9/11 GI Bill, enacted into law in 2008, will be available for individuals who served on active duty on or after September 11, 2001 effective August 1st. Any Veteran who Qualifies at the 100% Tier of the Post 9/11 GI Bill can attend Georgia Perimeter College without any out of pocket costs for tuition and fees!

The GI BILL provides educational money to veterans, guardsmen, reservists, spouses and dependents. Students receive a monthly stipend that is based on attendance. Payments can only be made to the students. The amount depends on the number of credit hours in which the student is currently enrolled. Hence, a reduction or stop of payment will be in effect immediately following a student's drop, withdrawal, and/or audit during the term for which enrollment certification has been processed. Payments are made directly to the student from the Department of Veteran Affairs at the end of each month in which your enrollment has been certified.
