Veteran? We Get You
Your military experience is an asset here. It will help you become a successful graduate and a future leader in commercial diving. Our veteran staff will assist your transition from active duty to civilian life as a student at DIT. Strong communication, clear expectations, and camaraderie are a way of life here. Our financial aid team handles post-9/11 GI Bill® paperwork every day. We’ll walk you through each step of the process so you don’t have to worry about a thing. Your $100 application fee will also be waived if you are active duty military or a veteran.
Active duty military and veterans attending DIT can receive up to $24,476.79 for tuition using the Post 9/11 GI Bill®. At 100% eligibility students can receive up to $2,808 per month, which is paid directly to the student for Basic Housing Allowance. Students can receive up to $1,000.00 per academic year for books and supplies.
Since 1968, The Divers Institute of Technology has been a Veteran Owned and Veteran Operated School. As a military friendly and VA-approved school, where more than half of our staff are veterans, we understand the sacrifices you have made to better our country. Because of your selfless service, we are honored and take great pride in assisting you with your transition into the exciting world of commercial diving.
