Asher College offers many benefits and advantages to veterans who come here to pursue higher education and career training opportunities. In addition, Asher College participates in several VA education funding programs. The qualifications and conditions for military benefits can vary, but you don’t need to figure any of it out alone. At Asher, we have qualified School Certifying Officials on each of our three campuses, and dedicated specialists who will assist you with every aspect of your VA education benefits. These experienced specialists work with all VA chapters and are familiar with all available VA education options including the Montgomery GI Bill® (Chapter 30), the Post 9/11 GI Bill® (Chapter 33), the Survivors’ and Dependents Education and Assistance (DEA) Program (Chapter 35), and the Veteran Readiness and Employment Program (Chapter 31). In addition, Veterans may also qualify for VRRAP Benefits, but California and Nevada students must start their program by Nov. 28, 2022, and Texas students must start by Dec. 5, 2022. So call us now at 888-211-8829 to let us help explore these benefits.
Asher College’s School Certifying Officials are here to support you as you begin your educational journey. They will walk you through the entire process, helping you to apply for benefits, including requesting and filling out the documents you need, and assisting you with determining your housing allowance. They will also work with your instructors to monitor your progress in order to assist you in meeting the eligibility requirements to receive your monthly benefits.
Our School Certifying Officials are dedicated to helping you transition from military service to academic study, but you will find our entire community values your service and is here to support you as well. Each of Asher’s three campus locations has been recognized as a Military Friendly® school. The Military Friendly® School list, created annually by VIQTORY media, is based on extensive research using public data sources for over 8,800 schools nationwide, input from student veterans, and responses to the proprietary, data-driven Military Friendly® Schools survey from participating institutions. Institutions are assessed by thresholds for student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence (degree advancement or transfer), and loan default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans. Asher is proud to have all three campuses meet this threshold of excellence. At Asher College, we value the military community and our Veteran students, and the Military Friendly recognition is another affirmation of our continued support for veteran and military students.
