Brighton College recognizes the hard work and sacrifice you make. We are proud to have been named to the Military Friendly Schools list by Victory Media. We participate in many federal military benefit programs. Below is a list of several ways we are helping active service members, veterans, and their families further their education.
Active Duty Education Benefits
Military Tuition Assistance
Brighton College accepts Military Tuition Assistance (TA) for active duty service members enlisted in the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corp, and Coast Guard. The TA will cover up to $4500 per fiscal year. Due to our low tuition rate, it is possible that the TA will cover all tuition for Brighton College’s associate degrees and diploma programs. Call the office at 1-800-354-1254 for more information.
Brighton College’s programs are affiliated with DANTES, which qualifies US military personnel for tuition reimbursement.

Service Members Opportunity College
The Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC) provides college-level educational opportunities for active duty servicemembers and their families. Since active duty military members frequently move, it can be difficult to complete a degree at one institution. SOC enables servicemembers to complete an undergraduate degree at a participating institution regardless of where he or she is stationed. Brighton College is a proud member of SOC. Today, there are over 1,800 colleges and universities in this higher education consortium. More information about SOC can be found on the SOC Website.
Veteran’s Education Benefits
Brighton College is approved for Veteran’s Assistance (VA) Benefits for all of our associate degrees and diploma programs (except for the Associate of Science in Business Technical Sales degree).There are a number of benefit plans available for eligible veterans. Eligibility of veterans and eligible dependents as well as the amount of the education benefit is determined by the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA).
