Training Time

Training Time

The amount of educational assistance is determined by the number of credit hours and the length of training period in which the veteran enrolls.

The Office of Military and Veterans Affairs (OMVA) at Franklin University certifies VA benefits based on the actual number of weeks enrolled in each training period.  Due to our accelerated course formats, full-time enrollment (12 hours) at the University does not necessarily reflect full-time payment for your Veterans Benefits.
