Harper College is distinguished as a ‘Military Friendly School®’, an honor given to universities and colleges nationwide for their efforts to embrace America's veterans-turned-students. Our services extend to veterans, soldiers on active duty, reservists and military-dependents (spouses and children).
Harper staff strives to provide veterans and military-connected students with invaluable services geared toward the transition from service to finding success as a student. Our Veterans Services web page is frequently updated with the current information regarding local, statewide and national services, topical resources, and information regarding eligible educational benefit programs. There are checklists to help our veterans and eligible military-connected students apply for and utilize educational benefits, Title IV Federal Financial Aid and state assistance. Note: Veteran’s academic programs are approved by the Illinois State Approving Agency of the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs.
