Admissions for Veterans

You are here


Veterans or military members may apply online to be considered for admission to Northeastern Illinois University. Veterans planning on utilizing military educational benefits should include their social security number on their application and check the box indicating they are a veteran.

Prospective and new students should contact the Veterans Admissions Outreach Specialist for an initial assessment of eligibility and to help them navigate the next steps in the application process.

Veterans or military members with at least one year’s active military services will be admitted regardless of previous scholastic record, provided Northeastern Illinois University is the first institution of higher education attended following the release from service.
