Veterans & ROTC

Otterbein University recognizes the enormous sacrifice and contribution military personnel make to society. Returning veterans find individualized attention from Otterbein's dedicated staff, helping to ease their transition to civilian and university life.

Through military service, veterans develop leadership, teamwork, discipline and countless other skills. These are skills that are highly valued in the classroom and the work place. Combining these intangible skills with a formal education gives veterans the competitive edge with prospective employers.

Otterbein is approved to provide education to eligible veterans, widows and children of veterans and reservists. Individual eligibility and equivalent educational benefits are determined by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). To determine eligibility, visit the GI Bill website. Otterbein is a proud participant in the national Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program.
