Getting Started

Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine’s Las Cruces (NM) campus is approved by the New Mexico State Approving Agency for Veterans Education and Training, a division of the Department of Veterans’ Services (NMSAA) for education and training of students eligible to receive VA educational benefits. Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine is proud to assist service members, veterans, and their families in accessing the education benefits they have earned through their years of service to our nation.

If you have served in the U.S. military, you may be eligible for participation in one or more of the GI Bill® education benefit programs administered by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. In addition, if you are the spouse or child of a deceased or disabled veteran or a service member, you may qualify for education benefits as well.
