Veterans' Benefits

Lasell University's goal is to honor and support our service members both current and former as well as their families by providing the most comprehensive and caring experience possible while helping them to reach their educational, personal, and professional goals.

Lasell University is approved for the training of veterans and their dependents. Veterans or dependents eligible for assistance under the Veterans Administration programs should contact the Office of Student Financial Planning after they are matriculated (enrolled) into a degree program at Lasell and are ready to register for their classes. Disabled veterans should note that the university campus is designed so that the physically disabled have access to facilities.

Students who are receiving Veterans Affairs (VA) Benefits and have provided Lasell University the appropriate documentation will not have their student account placed on stop, will not be subject to late fees, or will not subject to any penalties related to outstanding balances, while awaiting payment from the VA. Penalties will not be restricted if a student owes additional payment beyond the amount of tuition and fees the VA will be paying.    

GI Bill

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed the original GI Bill ®  of Rights in 1944. Nearly 8 million World War II veterans employed its benefits to participate in an education or training program, and 2.4 million veterans had home loans backed by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. The GI Bill ® has been revamped over time to meet the changing needs of veterans. The most recent additions are the Chapter 33 Post-9/11 GI Bill ®  and the Yellow Ribbon program.

Lasell University has joined the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program and will offer veterans enrolling in the University up to $9,000 in grant money at the undergraduate level, and up to $3,000 at the graduate level annually while they pursue a degree at Lasell. Through the expanded GI Bill ® , the federal government will fund higher education for veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars at a rate equal to the tuition at public institutions within the state where the student is enrolled. In Massachusetts, that amount is less than $6,000.To get started and see if you qualify, start here
