Veterans and Military Affairs



Veterans

Thank you for your service to our Country! The Veterans Center assists all Veterans, Active Duty Service Members, eligible dependents and current NJ National Guard members to make full use of their V.A. Educational Entitlements, under the Montgomery G.I. Bill®, National Guard Tuition Waiver, VA Vocational Rehabilitation, VEAP/REAP and VRAP programs. Information and referral to other veterans’ benefits and services is available through our office. To provide you with assistance with your questions and refferal to services, and to submit required VA documents please contact us at: veteraninfo@brookdalecc.edu.

Veterans and their families are also encouraged to visit the Brookdale Veterans Affairs website for additional information regarding benefits, the application process, and other helpful resources.

Active Duty Military

The Veterans Center 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. You will be required to show proof of Active Duty orders or residency on a military installation within the county for the in-county rate.

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. Students called to Active Duty during the semester should be prepared to provide a copy of their military orders to the VA Certifying Official so that their classes can be dropped for a full refund or other arrangements can be discussed.  It is the student’s responsibility to make sure they provide this information to the College, an important step of their pre-deployment, prior to their date of departure and/or training.
