Approved Professional Development Programs for Veterans

Many non-credit/CEU certificate programs offered at USM are approved for the use of U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs educational benefits (also known as the GI Bill). To qualify, the program or workshop must lead to a specific vocational/occupational outcome. USM Veterans Services can help you navigate the VA educational benefits process.
