Veteran Affairs

Welcome to CAU Veteran Affairs

Veteran Affairs Services

The primary goal of Veteran Services at Clark Atlanta University is to assist students receiving VA Educational Benefits by:

  • Processing educational benefit forms such as enrollment certifications.
  • Advising students on procedures pertaining to their educational benefits.

Applying for Veterans Educational Benefits

Students looking to utilize Veteran Affairs Educational Benefits must have a processed application on file with the Department of Veteran Affairs.  For information on applying for benefits, please go to the Veterans Affairs website at: . 

Please be certain to save a copy of the application for Veterans Educational Benefits for your records as well as the confirmation email that the application was received.  You may need to provide a copy of the application to the VA Certifying Official at Clark Atlanta University.

Tuition Refund Process for Withdrawal due to Service Obligations

  • Military tuition assistance is awarded to a student under the assumption that the student will attend school for the entire period for which the assistance is awarded. When a student withdraws, the student may no longer be eligible for the full amount of funds originally awarded. In instances when a Service member stops attending due to a military service obligation, the University will work with the affected Service member to identify solutions that will not result in a student debt for the returned portion.
  • To comply with the new Department of Defense policy, Clark Atlanta University will return any unearned funds on a prorate basis on or before completing 60% of the semester/term for which the funds were provided. The amount returned is based on the student’s last day of attendance. Funds are earned proportionally during an enrollment period, with unearned funds returned based upon when a student stops attending. After the 60% period there will be no reduction of the original charges and they are due and payable in full. The calculation is made using weeks remaining divided by the total number of weeks in the term and rounding the result downward to the nearest whole 10 percent. These funds are returned to the military service branch within 60 days of the student’s withdrawal

Clark Atlanta University follows military policies and processes for the military Tuition Assistance (TA) program for eligible members of the Armed Services. 

Each service has its own criteria for eligibility, obligated service, application process and restrictions. It is recommended that you speak with your Educational Services Officer (ESO) or counselor within your military service to determine which VA or Military benefit(s) you qualify for. Follow the links for information for your particular service:

You should NEVER schedule classes until approval from your ESO is obtained.  After you have determined your eligibility and have received approval to utilize TA, you must bring proof of eligibility to the Dean of Students in the Office of Student Affairs, Acadian Center, Room 112. The Dean of Students will work with financial aid, the Business Office, and veterans affairs to financially clear you for the semester. This must be turned in at least two (2) business days prior to the payment deadline for the upcoming semester.

Military Tuition Assistance Programs at CAU

Military Tuition Assistance is a benefit paid to eligible service members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard.  Each branch of the military has its own eligibility criteria, application process and restrictions.

Military Tuition Assistance provides financial assistance for voluntary off-duty educational programs in support of a service member’s professional and personal self-development goals. All Active Duty service members (officers, warrant officers, enlisted) are authorized to participate in the TA program through their respective branches. This includes members of the Active Guard Reserve, as well as Reserve Component Service Members who are activated under U.S. Code Title 10 or Title 32.

Service members should speak with their Education Services Officer (ESO) or counselor within their Military Service prior to enrolling. More information regarding Military Tuition Assistance can be found through the service member’s branch of service.

Montgomery GI Bill® benefits generally apply to Veterans who began active duty service for the first time after June 30, 1985, had their pay reduced $100 a month for 12 months, and received an honorable discharge.  Eligible service members may receive up to 36 months of education benefits.

Attendance Reporting Requirement Students receiving Montgomery GI Bill Active Duty (Chapter 30) benefits must verify their class attendance on or after the last day of each month before monthly payments are deposited into your personal checking/saving account or mailed to you.

Montgomery GI Bill® Selected Reserve provides education benefits for members actively participating in the Selected Reserve, including the Army Reserve, Navy Reserve, Air Force Reserve, Marine Corps Reserve and Coast Guard Reserve, and the Army National Guard and the Air National Guard. Eligible service members may receive up to 36 months of educational benefits.

A Veteran may receive Veteran Readiness and Employment (VR&E) services to help with job training, employment accommodations, resume development and skills coaching.  VR&E is a way for service members to receive personalized counseling and support as they work to achieve their career goals.

Who Qualifies?

A Veteran may be eligible for VR&E benefits if they:

  • Have received, or will receive, a discharge that is other than dishonorable
  • Have a service-connected disability rating of at least 10%, or a memorandum rating of 20% or more from the VA
  • Apply for VR&E services Students interested in applying for VR&E benefits can apply by logging in to their eBenefits.

Dependents Educational Assistance program offers education benefits to eligible dependents of Veterans who are permanently and totally disabled due to a service-related condition or of Veterans who died while on active duty or as a result of a service-related condition.  Eligible dependents may receive up to 45 months of education benefits.

CAU Salutes Veterans

For more than 200 years, African Americans have participated in every conflict in United States history. From Crispus Attucks during the beginnings of the Revolutionary War, to the appointment of General Colin Powell as Chair, Joint Chiefs of Staff, African Americans have courageously fought the common enemies of the United States.

The patriotism of African Americans is even more amazing, considering that many black soldiers fought for the nation while also confronting the individual and institutional racism of their countrymen. Since their beginnings, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUS) have been in the forefront of this somewhat paradoxical patriotic struggle.  Clark Atlanta University (CAU) has a long patriotic legacy that goes back to its founding institutions, Atlanta University (1867) and Clark College (1869):

Preparing the Nation’s Black Soldiers

Atlanta University and Clark College were among Georgia’s first to participate in the designated Student Army Training Corps (SATC) which was the precursor of what is today known as the ROTC. According to the Georgia Encyclopedia, the Peach state participated actively in military training for university men in what historian Walter Cooper called “Atlanta’s College Army.”

According to the July 1943 edition of the Atlanta University Bulletin, Army Administration School Branch No. 7, was housed on the campus of Atlanta University, and trained “enlisted men of the arms and services” with the Army Air Forces in basic administration. The University was charged with the mission of developing “able administrators capable of functioning with a minimum of supervision.” 

During the six months that the school was in session, approximately fifteen hundred soldiers received certificates of graduation from the commandant, Colonel Carl E. Nesbitt. There were nine officers on the administrative staff, and thirty on the instructional staff and faculty.

This was the second time that Atlanta University had served the Army. A quarter of a century earlier in World War I, the University served as a military post at which students likely to be called for active service were given instruction in what was known as the Army School for Mechanics, which trained black soldiers in civic engineering.

Military Service to Social Work

CAU’s Whitney M. Young Jr. School of Social Work has long served as fertile ground for military veterans seeking to “beat their swords into plowshares” in service to others. Since its founding as the independent Atlanta School of Social Work in 1920, the school has attracted and produced passionate, military veterans who have served the nation from the battlefields abroad to our communities here at home.  Jesse O. Thomas, one of the School’s early founders, led efforts by the U.S. Treasury to sell war bonds to the black community during World War II. The School’s first dean and civil rights pioneer, Whitney M. Young Jr., Jerome Farris, U.S. Court of Appeals Judge (AU, 1955) and Famed Artist/Sculptor Noah S. Purifoy (AU, 1948), are among the many CAU Social Work scholars who have also served in the military.

Listed below are the many CAU alums, faculty and students whose historic contributions have distinguished them in service to our nation:


Sgt. Whitney M. Young Jr. | U.S. Army
Dean, School of Social Work, Atlanta University, 1954-1961
Social Reformer and Civil Rights Activist

Whitney M. Young aspired to become a physician after college, but his experiences as a noncommissioned officer in a segregated Army changed his mind. In 1944, during World War II, he was assigned to a road construction crew of black soldiers supervised by Southern white officers. After just three weeks, he was promoted from private to first sergeant, creating hostility on both sides. Despite the tension, Young was able to mediate effectively between his white officers and black soldiers angry at their poor treatment. Acting as a bridge between black and white servicemen propelled Young into a career in race relations. As a result, Young switched his career interest from medicine to social work. 

After the war, he earned a master’s degree in social work at the University of Minnesota in 1947 and soon thereafter, began his history making career as a distinguished civil rights leader, social reformer and dean of the school of social work, which today bears his name: The Whitney M. Young Jr. School of Social Work at Clark Atlanta University (CAU). 

Noah S. Purifoy | U. S. Navy
Atlanta University, 1948
Artist, Sculptor

Noah S. Purifoy served as a “Seabee” in the United States Navy during World War II. After the war he attended Atlanta University, where he earned a graduate degree in social services administration. In 1953, he became the first African American to enroll as a full-time student at the Chouinard Art Institute (now CalArts), where he earned his BFA in 1956, just before his 40th birthday.  In the late 1980’s, Purifoy spent eleven years in public policy work for the California Arts Council where he initiated programs such as Artists in Social Institutions, bringing art into the state prison system. As the co-founder of the Watts Towers Art Center and creator of the Noah Purifoy Outdoor Desert Art Museum, he is best known for his large-scale assemblage sculptures, including a body of work made from charred debris and wreckage collected after the Watts Riots of August 1965.

Hon.  Jerome Farris | U.S. Army
Atlanta University, 1955
Judge, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit

Judge Farris served in the United States Army Signal Corps from 1952 to 1953. After service, he earned his Master of Social Work from Atlanta University and Juris Doctor with Order of the Coif honors from the University of Washington School of Law in 1958. Nominated by President Jimmy Carter on July 12, 1979, to a new seat authorized by 92 Stat. 1629. He was confirmed by the Senate on September 26, 1979 and received commission on September 27, 1979. Judge Farris Assumed senior status on March 4, 1995.

Hon. Clarence Cooper | U.S. Army
Atlanta University, 1955
Senior U.S. District Judge, District Court for the Northern District of Georgia

Judge Cooper served in the United States Army during 1968-1970, became staff sergeant, received the Bronze Star and Certificate of Commendation. He was an Assistant district attorney of Fulton County, Georgia in 1968 and from 1970 to 1975. He was a judge on the City of Atlanta Municipal Court, Georgia from 1975 to 1980. Cooper was the first African American appointed to a full-time judgeship on the Atlanta Municipal Court. He is 1964 honors graduate of Clark College, where he majored in Political Science and History.


Second Lt. Henry Ossian Flipper | U.S. Army
Atlanta University, 1872
Barrier Breaking Soldier

Henry Ossian Flipper (March 21, 1856 – April 26, 1940) was an American soldier and former slave. Flipper attended Atlanta University for one year during Reconstruction; Representative James C. Freeman appointed the freshman to attend West Point. In 1877, Flipper became the first African American to graduate from the United States Military Academy at West Point, earning a commission as a second lieutenant in the US Army.  Unfortunately, while serving with the 10th Cavalry, he was framed for embezzlement. President Bill Clinton granted him a posthumous honorable discharge in 1999.


Maj. Richard Robert Wright Sr. | U.S. Army
Atlanta University, 1876
Military Officer, Educator, Entrepreneur and Activist

 Richard Robert Wright (May 16, 1855 – July 2, 1947) was an American military officer, educator and college president, politician, civil rights advocate and banking entrepreneur. He was valedictorian at Atlanta University’s first commencement ceremony in 1876. Among his many accomplishments, he founded a high school, a college (Georgia State Industrial College for Colored Youth which would later become Savannah State University) and a bank (the Philadelphia’s Citizens and Southern Bank and Trust Company). 

 In August 1898, President William McKinley appointed him as Major and the first African American paymaster of United States Volunteers in the United States Army. During the Spanish–American War, he was the highest ranking African-American officer. He was honorably discharged in December of the same year.  A year after his death, both houses of the U.S. Congress passed a bill to make February 1 National Freedom Day. Wright initiated this holiday to recognize the day in which the 13th Amendment was signed by President Abraham Lincoln to free all U.S. slaves.


Capt. Irma Jackson Cayton Wertz | WAACS

Irma Jackson Cayton Wertz (May 8-1911– ) was a member of the first Women’s Auxiliary Army Corps (WAACS) Officer training class commissioned at Fort Des Moines, Iowa, during World War II.  Born in Brunswick, Georgia, Jackson was the product of a military household.  Her family was stationed in Des Moines while her father, who served as a captain in the segregated army during World War I, attended officer’s training camp.  After graduating from Fisk University and then Atlanta University where she received a master’s degree in sociology, Jackson moved to Chicago, Illinois where she gained employment as a social worker in the South Parkway Community Center. In 1942 Jackson applied for entrance into the Women’s Auxiliary Army Corps.  After successfully passing a battery of examinations, Jackson was briefly assigned to the WAAC Headquarters in Washington, D.C. as a recruiter. Shortly thereafter, she relocated to Fort Huachuca, Arizona, where she met and married William Wertz and joined the Thirty-second WAAC Post Headquarters Company. Under her leadership, the Thirty-second earned the highest ratings for efficiency on the military base.
