Military & Service
The Financial Aid Office staff are trained answer questions about all forms of aid, in general. For specific benefit questions, students are referred to the Veterans Affairs offices. Students and families who self-identify as veterans or the dependent of a veteran are urged to work with the benefits coordinators at their branch of service and then work with the offices on campus – VA certifying officials and Third Party billing. The Financial Aid Office does not play a role in helping students to access these benefits but encourage students to seek connection in the office of Veterans Services.
ECU Student Veteran Services Office assists ECU student veterans in transitioning from military to university life by providing information and resources to ease the transition, connect veterans and their families to appropriate services on campus, and provides assistance in accessing Federal VA Educational Benefits.
