SCNM thanks you for your service! To apply to SCNM, please complete all the standard admission requirements found here

SCNM's ND program is an approved program of study by the Veterans Administration (VA). Eligibility for VA benefits is determined by the appropriate VA benefits office. Students must contact the VA office and complete required approval forms to determine eligibility.

After the student has completed the process, SCNM is notified by the VA office of the student’s eligibility and status of benefits. VA benefits are not considered Estimated Financial Assistance when determining eligibility for Federal Direct Loans. Veterans must continue to achieve Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) towards their educational program(s) each quarter in order to remain eligible for benefits. SCNM must report to the VA office if a student is not meeting SAP or if there is a change in enrollment status.

If you served on active duty, you might be eligible for education benefits offered by the Department of Veterans Affairs. For example, the Post 9/11 GI Bill®  provides financial support for educational and housing expenses to individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate service after September 10, 2001, or individuals discharged with a service connected disability after 30 days. You must have received an honorable discharge to be eligible for the Post 9/11 GI Bill® .

If you are currently serving in the military, you may be eligible for funding offered through the Department of Defense Tuition Assistance program. Check your eligibility status and the amount for which you qualify with your service prior to enrolling.

If you are the spouse or child of a service member, you may be eligible for transfer of the service member’s Post 9/11 GI Bill® benefits to you.

SCNM is an approved participant in the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Yellow Ribbon program, individuals who qualify for the post-9/11 GI Bill may be eligible for additional funding to help them achieve their educational goal. 

The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program) is a provision of the Post-9/11 GI Bill that allows veterans to attend private schools and graduate programs costing more than the state tuition cap. Under the program, SCNM offers a veterans-only scholarship which the VA will then match. This benefit is offered to a limited number of students on a first come, first-served basis. Veterans should contact the Registrar’s Office for further inquiry of benefits and submission of the Yellow Ribbon Program Application.

SCNM has agreed to comply with the Principles of Excellence as issued in Executive Order 13607 and signed on 4/27/2012.
