In order to qualify for the waiver, students must have completed at least 24 credits at Western using their GI Bill benefits. The offer is only for students pursuing bachelor’s degrees. The veteran’s office will determines whether students are eligible for other kinds grant or assistance.
Ann Beck, assistant director of Western’s veteran services, said this is the only program of its kind that she knows of.
