Military Veteran Benefits

The University of Toledo is a military-friendly institution.


In-State Tuition Rates

The Ohio GI Promise seeks to make Ohio the most veteran-friendly state in the country for higher education. To encourage veterans from across the country to bring their families, leadership, motivation, and maturity to Ohio’s colleges and universities, qualified veterans, active duty, guard, reserve, and their dependents are able to skip the 12-month residency requirement and attend schools in the Ohio University System at in-state tuition rates.


Tuition Assistance

The Post-9/11 GI Bill provides qualified veterans with educational financing assistance. Veterans with 36 months total active service are qualified to receive 100% assistance for public, in-state tuition and fees for a period of 36 months. The Post-9/11 GI Bill also provides a monthly housing allowance and an annual books and supplies stipend.


Scholarship Awards

Qualified veterans who have exhausted their GI Bill benefits may be eligible for scholarship assistance from Toledo Law. Please contact the Law Admissions Office for additional information.


Military JAG and Other Government Programs

JAG offices from many branches of the United States Armed Forces maintain a relationship with Toledo Law by conducting on-campus interviews, offering informational sessions, and recruiting our graduates. Many government agencies give preferential treatment to veterans in their hiring processes.

Additionally, several of our alumni and faculty members are current or former officers of the JAG Corps or civil servants and three of our tenure-track faculty members - Professors Gibbons, Rapp, and Strang - have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. Visit the Office of Professional Development to tap into this network and learn how you can pursue a career in military law or the public sector.


We invite you to contact our Military Service Center with any questions you might have about benefits for veterans at The University of Toledo.
