Military Students

ENMU and Cannon Air Force Base have been closely associated for many years so we have had the opportunity to assist many military members and their families. ENMU is a proud member of the Department of Veterans Affairs "Yellow Ribbon Program."

We at ENMU are committed to helping our military students and accustomed to developing their financial aid in conjunction with the additional governmental assistance they may receive. The following options are available to military students at ENMU:

Each resource has qualification criteria and application requirements so plan early to meet any deadlines.

The first step to receive Federal Student Aid is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) which you will find along with more financial aid information on the FAFSA website. The FAFSA should be completed as soon as new tax returns are completed each year. Award offers will be made as soon as admission requirements are completed. Students must be in good academic standing and enrolled for at least six hours.
