Military and Veterans Benefits

For more than a decade, Spring Hill College has supported the academic achievement of United States active duty military members by offering a Military Tuition Rate of $250 per credit hour.

Starting in the fall of 2019, Spring Hill College has extended its support by offering the same tuition rate of $250 per credit hour for the following individuals who enroll in one of our Graduate programs or in the Business and Professional Studies undergraduate program:

  • Spouses of active duty military members (Must document spouse’s current military status by providing proof of current marriage and a copy of spouse’s military orders or enlistment contract.)
  • Reservist and Guard Members (Must document current military status by providing a copy of military orders or enlistment contract.)

If you have questions regarding required documentation or submitting of the documentation, please contact studentbilling@shc.edu.

The Department of Education has published a brochure that explains in detail the federal student loan benefits that are available to veterans.

We require that you complete the VA Education Benefit Agreement Form every semester. This form should be submitted to Student Financial Services along with a certificate of eligibility (VA Form 22-0557) or award letter (VA Form 20-8993). Once we have received this form, we will notify the VA regional office of your enrollment.

Students applying for benefits for the first time must complete a VA Request for Benefits Form along with the forms specified above. Students who have received benefits at another institution and who are applying for benefits at Spring Hill College for the first time, must complete a VA Change of Program/Place of Training Form. Both forms can be found at the Veterans Online Application
