There are four categories for Military/Veteran students; please select the appropriate category for more information.


Active Duty

Any individual who is currently under contract with any branch of the U.S. military in an active duty status, may qualify for Tuition Assistance. This Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is an agreement between the member's command and the Atlantic Cape Cashier's office. This benefit is separate from VA Education benefits.

Army/Air National Guard

Current drilling members of the New Jersey Army/Air National Guard may qualify for the state guard tuition waiver. This waiver covers the cost of tuition minus any tech fees. Guard members may also qualify for select chapters of VA education benefits which are separate from the NV Guard waiver program. Eligibility is determined by the Department of Veteran Affairs.

Military Dependents/Spouses

Must be a spouse, child, step-child, or adopted child of a veteran who is deceased (service connected) or is rated 100% disabled (service connected, permanent and total) or an active duty member who has transferred their education benefit to a qualifying spouse or dependent while on active duty and/or before retirement. Eligibility is determined by the Department of Veteran Affairs.


Any member of the U.S. military that has served on active duty and has accumulated qualifying time in service may be eligible for VA education benefits. Eligibility is determined by the Department of Veteran Affairs, based on the following categories: qualifying active duty time, disability rating if applicable, and type of discharge from the U.S. military.


If none of these categories apply to you, apply as a New Student.
