Vernon, Texas - Vernon College students who are Active Duty Military Personnel and who have been approved for tuition assistance for the military will no longer be charged an Institutional Service Fee at Vernon College starting the Fall 2015 semester.
This waiver was passed at the April Vernon College Board of Trustees meeting in an effort to enhance active duty military personnel training opportunities in the Wichita Falls area.
In addition to their Veterans Services Office located at the Century City Center in Wichita Falls, this waiver is one more concentrated effort to be military friendly.
Debbie Alexander, Vernon College's Veteran's Services/Financial Aid Coordinator, stated, "Our goal is to help each individual make the best choices and to maximize their benefits to obtain their educational and professional goals. We assist all of these military-related students in applying for financial aid benefits as well."
Vernon College proudly provides a location on Sheppard Air Force Base to assist with admissions information and other services. For more information on those services please contact Linda Thomas at (940) 855-2203 or her email
