There are many opportunities open to Veterans on campus to earn while you learn. Typically, work study positions fall into two categories: VA work study and ONU work study.
VA Work Study
Any veteran student that is a ¾ time student or full time student can earn money through the VA by becoming involved in the VA work study allowance program.

Who is eligible?

- Disability of the veteran student or lack of disability
- Ability of student to complete work study contract before the end of his or her eligibility to educational benefits through the VA
- Job availability within normal commuting distance to the student
