Texas A&M-Kingsville will waive Application Fee for veterans

Posted on

Officials with the Office of Veterans Affairs at Texas A&M University-Kingsville have announced that they will begin waiving the Application Fee for all veterans beginning in the spring semester.

 

“This will allow our student veterans a worry-free and quicker application process,” said Eloy Gamez, director of the Office of Veterans Affairs. “The transition from military to civilian is one filled with many obstacles. Veterans who are discharging look forward to starting their journey in education and the utilization of their benefits help them reach their goals.

 

“By us waiving these fees, we are removing one of the first hurdles a veteran can face when starting their education career. It also is a great way to show support to our veterans and service members,” Gamez said.

 

The process is a partnership with the Office of Admissions, Gamez said. “There is a digital Applicant ID form which now includes a Military/Veteran Applicant type. Our students will select that option along with their Applicant level and attach a qualifying service form (DD214, Orders, Transcript) for our review and verification.”

 

Currently, the application fee is $25 for undergraduates and $35 for graduate students.
