Welcome Veterans

Learn to Tell Your Story


Veterans have great stories to tell and are used to hard work to attain their goals. We would be happy to welcome you to our upcoming class.

The Institute for Documentary Filmmaking was recently approved so that individuals may use Department of Veteran Affairs benefits to pay for the certificate program's tuition. We are thrilled by this development as part-time programs, such as the Institute, are frequently not approved for G.I. Bill support. But we offer a rigorous, academic program and the approving board saw the value of our approach and its relevance to our nation's veterans.  

GW has a very proud and supportive military community with over 1,800 military-affiliated students involved in several organizations on campus. Our Office of Military and Veteran Student Services is committed to providing our student veterans, dependents, and military personnel with excellence in service through timely and accurate benefit processing, high-quality customer service, and supportive community-building activities.

If you have questions about how to use your G.I. Bill benefit or about GW's veteran and military community, please reach out to their office at [email protected]
