Lakeland College is dedicated to serving students who receive military benefits by providing timely and accurate information about the college and benefit certification prior to and during a student's enrollment at the college.
Lakeland College is state agency approved to certify all programs with the exception of the Wisconsin GI Bill, which is restricted to public institutions, and the VRAP program, which is restricted to approved two-year institutions. Lakeland's Veterans Coordinator, Jacob Lopez, will process all appropriate military paperwork on a semester-by-semester basis. You can reach him by telephone at 920-565-1297 or (800) 569-2166 or by email at . His office is located in William A. Krueger, Room #107.
If you are unsure of your eligibility for benefits, please contact your local VA Service Office (located in your local courthouse), go to gibill.va.gov, or call the GI Bill Call Center at 1-888-GIBILL-1. Once you are certain of your eligibility, you can access all pertinent forms required to apply for your military benefits or to transfer your benefits to Lakeland College from another college or university by visiting gibill.va.gov. Complete all pertinent forms, and submit them.
Veterans should notify Jacob Lopez of enrollment each term, and any changes in enrollment (add/drops/withdrawals). Failure to do so could result in benefits not being processed or in overpayments.

- Chapter 33 (Post 9/11 Bill/Yellow Ribbon)
- State Veterans (VET ED and DMA 189)
