Eastern Illinois University has been designated as a Military Friendly School by GI Jobs Magazine every year since the inception of the award in 2010. Our commitment to supporting veterans, military service members, and military family members is also recognized by EIU being awarded the Illinois Governor?s Award for Excellence in Veteran Education for 2012. We are only getting started and will continue to provide dedication and steadfast commitment to our military community, which makes us a great place to redeem your post 9/11 GI Bill benefits. Consistently ranked in the top third of Midwest universities in its class by U.S. News and World Report, Eastern has earned its reputation by offering a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate programs taught by an experienced and caring faculty. In addition to reasonable tuition, fees, and room and board rates, Eastern offers a textbook rental system, saving the average student hundreds of dollars per semester. This excellent cost-to-education is demonstrated in that EIU has a lower tuition than the median cost for universities in Illinois, and so veterans coming to Eastern Illinois University would now benefit from the Yellow Ribbon Program!
