Information for Veterans

Johnson certifies military personnel through the GI Bill in many areas and also certifies tuition assistance programs through the Department of Defense.

On April 27, 2012, President Obama signed Executive Order 13607 which established Principles of Excellence for educational institutions serving service members, veterans, spouses, and their dependents. Johnson University is in compliance with the Principles of Excellence and will be listed as a campus committed to these Principles of Excellence and our nation’s veterans, service members, and dependents.

These programs are administered and certified through the Registrar’s Office. Johnson is honored to offer quality Christian education to our veterans, active military, and their dependents.

If you believe you are eligible for educational benefits through your GI Bill or Tuition Assistance, please coordinate with your military education adviser or ESOs on receiving approval from installation commanders before applying to the institution.

Service Members Point of Contact

The University’s VA Certifying Official serves as the point of contact for service members relating to academic and financial advising. The VA Certifying Official works in the Financial Aid Office. The certifying official is familiar with many of the university services that provide academic counseling, financial aid counseling, job search support, and other student support services. Service members may contact the VA Certifying Official with any of their questions regarding their education or financial assistance at Johnson University.
