Academic Records Office - Veteran's Affairs

LeTourneau University (LETU) is thankful to every veteran for their service to our country and for their sacrifices made to protect the freedoms we share as Americans. 

The Post 9/11 GI Bill

LeTourneau University works with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to allow students to use their GI Bill while in school at LETU.  LETU also participates in the Yellow Ribbon program which is designed to help reimburse veterans for differences in tuition and fees not covered in the Post 9/11 GI Bill.  If you have questions about paid tuition and fees or housing allowances, please visit www.gibill.va.gov. The VA’s section on the Post 9/11 GI Bill contains a wealth of information about benefits and provides answers to most questions.  For further information, please feel free to call Melissa Hammer, the Veteran Representative for LeTourneau University, at 903-233-4374.  Additional information may also be found at http://www.letumilitary.com.
