Veterans who feel they qualify for Veterans Assistance or the GI Bill should contact the school. Students receiving this type of aid are responsible for paying the initial $1,500 deposit upon acceptance into the program and are also responsible for the purchase of textbooks on the first day of class. Most tuition payments are sent directly to the school. If the Veteran receives the tuition payment, the student will be responsible for making monthly tuition payments to the school. For information on getting approved to attend FIU visit the VA website at www.gibill.va.gov.
