Participating Programs

We support and appreciate our veterans and service members and want to partner with you in ministry training! 

To use your Military TA benefit at Westminster, you will want to start by speaking with your Educational Services Officer (ESO) or counselor within your Military Service prior to enrolling the student in the institution. Our MAC Degree program and all counseling classes are ineligible for all Military benefits at this time.

Westminster participates in the GI Bill® Benefits and GoArmyEd Tuition Assistance, in addition to other active duty personnel and AmeriCorps programs. Students who are veterans should refer to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website for eligibility requirements. 

Request a Copy of your Certificate

In order to certify your enrollment for the use of your GI Bill® benefits, we'll need a copy of your Certificate of Eligibility. Learn how to request a copy here. You can send a copy of your Certificate to after you accept your admission decision and have made your deposit for your program.

Once you submit your TA Assistance request to your branch of the military or submit your certificate of Eligibility to our SCO, you can register for your class(es).

For VA benefits, once you are registered, we do a two step certification at Westminster. The first step is to certify your enrollment without tuition. This happens before the start of the term and gets the ball rolling on the VA side of things. After the add/drop period in a term, our SCO will certify your enrollment again with the tuition amount. Your benefit will show as pending when the first certification is completed and will be reflected on your invoice. When the VA disburses funds for your term (about 2 weeks after the second cert) we will post the benefit to your account.

For TA Assistance, let us know that you are using TA before the start of the term. It is helpful if you send us a copy of your TA approval ( After the start of the term, we will certify your enrollment with your particular military branch.
