Military & Veterans Services


Our Financial Aid representatives are well-versed to help you navigate your VA benefits while in school.20 Most of our Military Admissions Representatives are U.S. veterans.

UTI offers a Salute to Service Grant, which provides military veterans a 10% tuition reduction.22 We also offer military-only campus orientations, which allow you and your Admissions Representative to focus on the topics most important to you.


You’re not alone when navigating the complexities of military benefits. We can help you with your questions and education goals by asking just a few simple questions, such as:

  • When are you being discharged?
  • What are your dates of service?
  • What technical training programs interest you?
  • When do you hope to begin your training?

Once you discuss your background and goals, your Military Admissions Representative can help you prepare to begin your training.

In accordance with Title 38 US Code 3679 subsection (e), Universal Technical Institute/Motorcycle Mechanics Institute/NASCAR Technical Institute adopts the following additional provisions for any students using U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Post 9/11 GI Bill® (Ch. 33) or Vocational Rehabilitation & Employment (Ch. 31) benefits, while payment to the institution is pending from the VA. This school will not:

  • Prevent the student's enrollment;
  • Assess a late penalty fee to the student;
  • Require the student to secure alternative or additional funding;
  • Deny the student access to any resources (access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities) available to other students who have satisfied their tuition and fee bills to the institution.

For eligibility consideration, a Post 9/11 GI Bill® student must submit a VA Certificate of Eligibility (COE) and a Vocational Rehabilitation Student must provide a VAF 28-1905 form.

GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government website at


Next Steps

We recommend all students—including veterans—fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine if they qualify for additional funds for school.

FAFSA: What You Need

  • Social Security and driver license numbers
  • Tax records for you and your spouse (if applicable)
  • Documentation of your VA benefits and any workers compensation or child support received
  • Personal financial records, including recent bank statements and investment information

List These Incomes for FAFSA

  • Most recent pay (if you're no longer active duty)
  • VA disability pay and non-educational VA benefits (as untaxed income)
  • Combat pay (if it was taxable and part of your adjusted gross income on your last tax return)
