Veterans Benefits

Welcome home and welcome to Sumner College! Thank you for your service to our country. We are here to help you as you continue your education. Our Nursing programs are approved by the Oregon Department of Education for veterans education leading to a college degree or career-specific educational program. We’ve even been recognized as one of Oregon’s military-friendly nursing schools. For complete program and application information please visit: The United States Department of Veteran Affairs.

Veterans benefits may include payment for courses, books, tutoring and housing allowance. In some circumstances, benefits may be transferred to a dependent. Additional information regarding educational benefits can be found at or by calling 1-888-442-4551.
