The Veterans Affairs Office is part of Towson University’s Office of the Registrar and functions primarily to certify veterans' enrollment status in courses at the university to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The Web address is www.towson.edu/registrar/va.asp.
Contact the university's Veterans Affairs Office at least eight weeks prior to your date of enrollment to ensure timely processing of paperwork. If you withdraw from a course or stop attending after you register, you must notify the TU Veterans Affairs Office.
The Veteran's Information Sheet provides details and forms to facilitate the processing of your veterans’ educational benefits. This information applies to those veterans, reservists, and dependents of veterans who may receive benefits under the Veterans Educational Assistance program (VEAP) – Chapter 32, the Montgomery GI Bill, Reservists – Chapter(s) 1606-1607, and Active Duty Veterans – Chapter 30, Survivor’s and Dependents’ Educational Assistance – Chapter 35, and the Vocational Rehabilitation Program – Chapter 31.
Towson University offers Thank You Grants to qualified U.S. military personnel and recent veterans. As the name suggests, Thank You Grants reward active-duty personnel and veterans for their service by helping to defray the cost of attending the university.
The grants are intended to supplement Veterans Administration (VA) education benefits, which no longer cover full tuition for many veterans. In implementing the Thank You Grant program, TU seeks to reduce the financial strain these men and women often face while pursuing their degrees.
The Thank You Grant program awards up to $500 per term for eight terms for eligible students: newly admitted, currently enrolled and readmitted veterans or active-duty service members. Full-time students who meet all criteria would receive $500, with part-time students receiving $250 per term. Recipients must have degree-seeking status at TU. Applicants are also required to have been on active-duty status for no fewer than 12 months; veterans must have been released from service after October 24, 2001. Those on release status must be eligible for VA benefits.

The Thank You Grants are a great way for the university to extend a helping hand to our military personnel and veterans. As Maryland welcomes even more military personnel and veterans, we hope many of them will choose to continue their education at Towson.
