I have heard some horror stories from guys I know trying to use the GI Bill at other universities. Southern Wesleyan understands the ins and outs of military financial aid like the GI Bill and does whatever it takes to help me out with it. SWU makes everything incredibly easy, so I can actually focus on schoolwork over paperwork.
