Helping Military Heroes Earn Their Degrees!

Over 65 years ago, a veteran founded Grantham University with the express intent to support the military as a military friendly university.

That gives us more than six decades of experience as a military friendly university, providing education for active duty personnel, military veterans and military families. We consider it an honor and privilege to serve those who serve. And over time, we've learned a few things.

Number one? We make it easy for military veterans to graduate.

From low tuition rates to our Textbook and Software Grant Program to help with understanding your Veterans Administration benefits, we help you every step of the way.

They helped me out through the whole process … let me know how to go about using tuition assistance.

Veteran Education Benefits

The Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) offers multiple GI Bill® benefits to simplify the process of pursuing a college degree. The VA website provides information on each veteran benefit, as well as a GI Bill® Comparison Tool to help you choose the best option(s).


This funding process could take up to four weeks, so the best approach is to start as soon as possible. Here’s how it works:

  1. Once you’ve determined the program or course(s) in which you’d like to enroll, you should decide which GI Bill® benefit is best for you, by using this comparison tool.
  2. To apply for the benefit you’ve chosen, complete the online application, and include the following information in the “School” field:
    Grantham University
    16025 W. 113th Street
    Lenexa, KS 66219
  3. If you are using additional funding sources (such as Federal Student Aid), your student financial services officer at Grantham will work with you to ensure everything is in place.
  4. Once your eligibility is determined, you’ll receive a funding plan outlining the cost of attendance and eligible funds for the academic year.
  5. Your enrollment should be certified with the VA after the drop period for the term has passed (typically at day 10 of the term).
