Veteran’s and Military Affairs



Veterans

The Office of the Registrar assists all Veterans and eligible dependents to make full use of their V.A. Educational Entitlements, under the Montgomery G.I. Bill and VEAP programs. Information and referral of other veterans’ benefits is available, as is information on the New Jersey Veterans’ Tuition Credit program for eligible Veterans. Any other concerns particular to Veterans may be investigated through this Office. Please call 732-224-2095 for assistance and information.

Veterans and their families are also encouraged to visit Veterans Affairs in the Admissions Office for a consultation or visit the Brookdale Veterans’ Affairs website for additional information on tuition, fees and benefits available.

Active Duty Military

The Office of the Registrar also provides services to active duty military and their dependents. Military personnel and their dependents who reside in Monmouth County or on a military installation within the county are considered residents of Monmouth County for tuition purposes, even if they have not met the state and county residence requirements. The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 requires that admitted or enrolled students who leave school to serve on active duty with the armed forces be readmitted or re-enrolled with the same academic standing as when they left. All military members and their dependents are eligible for the SOCAD and SOCNAV programs.

Members of the New Jersey Army National Guard and Military Reserve units eligible for V.A. Educational Entitlement under the Montgomery GI Bill are also serviced by this Office. Verification of Monmouth County residence should be available when seeking admission.
