VETERANS SERVICES 

Conemaugh recognizes the sacrifice of those who have served in the United States Armed Forces.  Thank you for your service!

If you are a veteran, service member, survivor, or dependent of a veteran, you may be eligible for veterans’ educational benefits to help you achieve your educational goals if you attend one of the following Conemaugh programs:

  • EMT
  • Paramedic
  • Medical Technology
  • Nursing
  • Radiologic Technology

For information about using military educational benefits at Conemaugh, contact our Veteran Certifying Officials in the Student Financial Services Office.  You can also log on to the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs website by visiting https://benefits.va.gov/gibill/ for additional information about educational benefits.  The VA Certificate of Eligibility or Statement of Benefits obtained from the Department of Veterans Affairs needs to be submitted to the Veteran Certifying Officials in the Student Financial Services Office.

Conemaugh will not impose any penalty, including the assessment of late fees, the denial of access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities, or the requirement that a covered individual borrow additional funds, on any covered individual because of the individual’s inability to meet his or her financial obligations to the institution due to the delayed disbursement funding from VA under Chapter 33 Post 9/11 GI Bill or Chapter 31 Vocational Rehabilitation benefits.

Note:  A covered individual is any individual who is entitled to educational assistance under Chapter 31 Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment or Chapter 33 Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits.

For veterans utilizing the Chapter 33 Post 9/11 GI Bill and for training beginning on or after August 1, 2018, the Monthly Housing Allowance (MHA) payment amounts are based on the Department of Defense’s Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) rates for an “E-5 with dependents” for the zip code of the campus or training location where the student has a majority of classes.  Conemaugh’s main campus (1086 Franklin Street, Johnstown, PA 15905) is the location where all students attend the majority of their classes.  For a list of additional clinical sites, please click here.
