Moraine Valley is grateful for the dedication and service of our armed forces. Whether you are a new student, returning student or deployed on active duty, we can assist you and eligible dependents as you begin or continue your education.

Eligibility for the various U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) Educational Benefit programs is determined by your date of enlistment.
